Macclesfield 0-1 Braintree Town

Macclesfield continue to sit in the Conference Premier's relegation zone after defeat at the hands of Braintree.

Rhys Taylor was called into action early on as he parried away a Liam Enver-Marum strike, while Braintree's Ryan Peters also made saves against Scott Boden and Danny Whitaker.

Efe Sodje and James Mulley both went into the book in a scrappy first half.

After the interval, Enver-Marum thumped a right-footed effort past Taylor to seal the win for the Iron.
