Danny Whitehead grabbed his sixth National League goal of the season on Saturday as Macclesfield Town drew 1-1 away at Barrow, consolidating their mid-table position of 10th on 61 points, although a play-off place is still mathematically possible as they trail the final place by 11 points with four games to go.  The midfielder featured for the full 90 minutes, in what was his 30th league start of the season.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN 2 HULL CITY 2 - EMYR HUWS

Midfielder Emyr Huws featured for the full 90 minutes as Huddersfield Town drew 2-2 with high flying Hull City on Saturday afternoon.  The Terriers looked like they'd secured an impressive victory when former Latics loanee Harry Maguire turned the ball into his own net in second half stoppage time, but Huws' side were left to settle for a point, when moments later Adama Diomande grabbed the Tigers a very late equaliser.

Huddersfield now sit 19th in the Sky Bet Championship, nine points above MK Dons who occupy the final relegation place.

DUNDEE UNITED 0 INVERNESS CT 2 - BILLY MCKAY

Our final loanee to feature for the full 90 minutes was striker Billy Mckay, whose Dundee United side were dealt a huge blow in their battle to beat the drop in the Scottish Premiership as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at Tannadice on Saturday.

United sit bottom of the division on 24 points, eight behind 11th place Kilmarnock in the relegation play-off place, and 12 points behind Hamilton Academical in the safety spot of 10th.

GLOUCESTER CITY 0 BRACKLEY TOWN 0 - LOUIS ROBLES

Development Squad striker Louis Robles featured for over an hour on his home debut for Gloucester City on Saturday, but the Tigers couldn't find a breakthrough against Brackley Town as they settled for a 0-0 draw.

Gloucester now occupy 14th place in National League North on 45 points, five points above the relegation zone with four games to go.

GRIMSBY TOWN 0 EASTLEIGH 0 - RYAN JENNINGS

Ryan Jennings is our final involvement in the weekend's action, with the winger a 72nd minute substitute for Grimsby Town in their 0-0 draw with Eastleigh.

The Mariners' stalemate saw them drop to fourth place in the National League, but their play-off place looks secure with sixth place Braintree Town seven points behind.

REST OF THE ACTION

Andrew Taylor was an unused substitute for Reading in their 2-0 home defeat to Birmingham City, whilst Sam Cosgrove (Nantwich Town) and Danny O'Brien (Chester) were not involved in the match day squads.  Goalkeeper Dan Lavercombe remained injured as his Torquay United side lost 1-0 at home against Tranmere Rovers.
