Conference Premier roundup: Macclesfield Town close gap on leaders Barnet

Sports Mole rounds up Tuesday night's action in the Conference Premier as Macclesfield Town close the gap on leaders Barnet after beating Altrincham.

Macclesfield Town have moved to within five points of Conference Premier leaders Barnet after they recorded a 2-1 victory over Altrincham.

Matthew Barnes-Homer and Adriano Moke gave their side a 2-0 advantage after 49 minutes, and although Kyle Perry halved the deficit, the Silkmen were able to hold on to keep themselves in the title race.

Forest Green Rovers have moved into fourth place in the standings despite being held to a 2-2 draw at struggling Alfreton Town.

It appeared as though Jon Parkin's 85th-minute goal would be enough for Forest Green before Lathanial Rowe-Turner struck in the fourth minute of added-on time to earn his team a share of the spoils.

In the night's other game, two goals in the final seven minutes from Joe Partington and Jai Reason earned Eastleigh a 2-1 victory away at Southport.

Results in full: Alfreton Town 2-2 Forest Green Rovers, Macclesfield Town 2-1 Altrincham, Southport 1-2 Eastleigh
