After their FA Cup giant-killing of Swindon, Macclesfield Town extended their winning run to four games against Tamworth.

Amari Morgan-Smith fired the ball home from six yards out after defender Ryan Jackson had set him up.

Tony Diagne, Keiran Murtagh and John Paul Kissock all went close within a minute, but did not extend the lead.

However, Jackson settled the game with his left-footed strike into the bottom corner from outside the box.
