Sutton United 1-1 FC Halifax Town

Halifax had to come from behind to earn a draw at Sutton as they relinquished top spot in the National League.

Kenny Davis' deflected free-kick put the home side in front early in the second half, but Dayle Southwell earned Halifax a point.

Halifax almost went in front in the first half when Jordan Preston's dipping volley beat goalkeeper Jamie Butler only to crash back off a post.

Instead Sutton took the lead as Davis found the net, his free-kick taking a nick on the way in.

But Halifax were level thanks to Southwell, ensuring they remain only one point behind new leaders Wrexham.
