Welling United 0-1 FC Halifax Town

Halifax boosted their play-off hopes with top-scorer Lee Gregory sealing victory over 10-man Welling.

Gregory scored from the penalty spot after being brought down by Blaine Hudson, who saw red for the challenge.

Matt Glennon denied Welling's Harry Beautyman soon after and Matty Pearson blocked the follow-up on the line.

Halifax, who move up to fifth with the win, pressed for another, with efforts from Scott McManus, Marlon Jackson and Gregory but the score remained 1-0.
