Welling leapfrogged Conference Premier rivals Macclesfield after an impressive second-half performance at Park View Road.

The first half provided few chances for either side but the hosts began to press after the break.

On-loan Cambridge defender Blaine Hudson finally broke the deadlock when he headed home from close range.

Welling could not find a second, whilst Macclesfield rarely threatened to find an equaliser.

The win sees Welling move up a place to 11th whilst Macclesfield slip one to 12th.

Welling manager Jamie Day told BBC Radio Kent:

"I'm pleased but we've got to keep the run going. We were in control. It was just about being patient, getting the first and then trying to get a second.

"We didn't but we were comfortable. It was just keeping the clean sheet.

"We've got a points target of 50 and we're almost there. We've just got to finish in the top half."
