FC Halifax Town 4-2 King's Lynn Town

Play-off chasing Halifax fought back from a two-goal deficit to claim a National League victory over King's Lynn.

Michael Gash opened the scoring for the struggling visitors in the 13th minute before Sonny Carey found King's Lynn's second in the 25th minute.

The hosts managed to claim a goal back before half-time when Billy Chadwick scored before Jake Hyde equalised just three minutes later.

Five minutes after the break Halifax grasped the lead for the first time when Luke Summerfield picked up a Hyde ball and fired home.

And Jack Earing then sealed the comeback victory with a 57th-minute strike into an empty goal.
