ROUND-UP: Matchday 30/01/2016
FOREST GREEN ROVERS came from a goal down in the second-half to beat MACCLESFIELD 2-1, to remain top of the Vanarama National League. Charlie Clough scored in the 93rd minute to give Rovers a priceless three points. Their Gloucestershire rivals CHELTENHAM eased to a 4-1 victory over mid-table BROMLEY to stay within a point of the leaders. Two goals each from new signing Dan Holman and Danny Wright earned them a comfortable home win.

TRANMERE won their fifth game from their last six to move into the play-off places. A 2-1 win over relegation battling TORQUAY, with goals from Gary Taylor-Fletcher and James Norwood, has put Rovers back on track for an instant return to the Football League.

GRIMSBY TOWN's title hopes took a massive blow as a single Danny Johnson goal gave GATESHEAD an unlikely 1-0 win. Grimsby are now 12 points off leaders Forest Green with two games in hand. WREXHAM could have snatched a late win at high-flying EASTLEIGH but Connor Jennings missed an 88th minute penalty to leave the final score 1-1.

HALIFAX moved up one place to 19th after a 1-1 draw at home to WELLING. ALTRINCHAM, who dropped down to 20th, had their game at home to DOVER postponed. Elsewhere down the bottom, GUISELEY lost 1-0 at LINCOLN CITY, their first win in 11, while rock-bottom KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS also lost by the same scoreline to ALDERSHOT TOWN. SOUTHPORT's fixture at home to BOREHAM WOOD was postponed.

Play-Off chasing WOKING were held to a frustrating draw with mid-table BARROW, leaving them still a point off of the play-offs. CHESTER have only one once in their last ten, a 2-0 defeat at BRAINTREE TOWN leaves them seven points above the drop but having played two games more.

Cards finish in top-half after win over Eastleigh

John Goddard scored the winner on what was likely to be his last game for the club to end Woking's season in 12th place.

Keiran Murtagh put the Cards ahead in the 13th minute and Goddard added another two minutes later. Matt Tubbs got one back for Eastleigh in the second half but by then their slim play-off hopes were over.

Off the back of a second away win in a row, Garry Hill made three changes to the starting XI. Giuseppe Sole, Joey Jones and John Goddard came in to try and end
