Darlington 0-1 Macclesfield

Darlington 0-1 Macclesfield

Jeff Smith's early own goal from Colin Daniel's cross handed Macclesfield victory at bottom-placed Darlington.

Darlington went close to an equaliser when Kevin Gall headed Jamie Devitt's cross into the side netting.

Curtis Main also came close but sidefooted over the bar from eight yards while he also later headed Mark Convery's free-kick against the post.

In injury time Macclesfield substitute Ricky Sappleton rounded keeper Russell Hoult but fired against the post.
