Notts County also got a point after a late fightback at Meadow Lane against Grimsby.

National League

It was a poor day for all three of the Moon’s National League sides. a 3rd minute goal from Ricky Modeste saw Southport just one place off the bottom as they lost 1-0 to Dover. Tranmere Rovers suffered their first defeat of the season at Aldershot. Andy Cook had equalised Bernard Mensah’s early goal. The game moved Aldershot’s way when Scott Rendall slotted home a penalty with 13 minutes to go and Will Evans with a volley sealed a 3-1 win for the hosts.

Tranmere’s defeat gave Forest Green the chance to go top against Chester. Liam Noble’s free kick out wide deceived everyone to give Forest Green the lead and Darren Carter made it 2-0. Elliott Durrell got one back for Chester with 11 minutes left but there was to be no equaliser. Forest Green leapfrog Tranmere to go top.
