Macclesfield Town 2-0 Aldershot Town

Macclesfield made it four wins in five games with a fine win over Aldershot.

Ryan Lloyd gave the hosts a dream start by tapping home from six yards in the first minute after Scott Wilson burst down the right and weaved his way into the box before squaring it to the ex-Port Vale winger.

Aldershot, who were aiming for a third consecutive away win, threatened to equalise via James Kellerman and Matt McClure as they grew into the game but both missed the target as the hosts clung on to their 1-0 lead.

Elliott Durrell put the result beyond doubt after 58 minutes with a fine strike from 20 yards and the victory takes the hosts up to fourth as the Shots drop to eighth.
