Last-gasp Macc winner restores eight-point gap


Macclesfield Town returned to the top of the National League table tonight thanks to an 89th minute goal from former Tranmere loanee Nathan Blissett.

The Silkmen failed to breakdown a plucky Gateshead team for much of the game, but once again, Jon Askey’s side have come up with a late winning goal that probably spells the end of not only Tranmere’s title challenge, but also those of Aldershot and Wrexham.

The game finished 1-0, while elsewhere Dover lost 2-1 at Eastleigh.

It means Tranmere trail Macc by eight points, a huge gap with just seven games left to play. Sutton United now look like the only team that can realistically stop them from winning the league title and sealing a return to the Football League. Sutton have now slipped three points behind in second position.
