A Reece Hall-Johnson wonder strike had given the visitors a lead after just four minutes, which would be cancelled out by Kyle Wooton’s spot kick only six minutes later.

Harry Lennon saw red in the build up to the penalty being given, with Notts County’s man advantage allowing them to go on and steal the three points – Wooton netted a second before the break, before Jayden Richardson secured the win midway through the second half.

After a goalless first half, Liam Mandeville’s strike sent a packed Technique Stadium into raptures, ensuring the Spireites remain top of the tree.

An early goal from Max Kretzschmar saw Woking lead at the break, only for parity to be restored, when Jayden John-Lloyd Harris’ levelled it just after the restart.

Kretzschmar restored Woking’s lead shortly after, with Corie Andrews equalising with a questionable penalty two minutes from time, providing the platform for Mikael Ndjoli to net a 95th-minute Aldershot winner.

Late drama sees Gulls sweep in and nick win

Torquay United left it late against Yeovil Town, but the Gulls came from behind to secure a memorable victory at Huish Park.

No goals in the first half left it all to play for in the second, with Jordan Barnett netting the opener for Yeovil just after the hour mark.

Trailing with 15 minutes to play, Connor Lemonheigh-Evans levelled things up for the visitors, with Dan Holman netting a winner one minute from time.

Eastleigh kick new year off against wayward Weymouth

Having come from two goals down, Weymouth were left heart-broken when Eastleigh scored a winner in the 93rd minute.

Goals from Tyrone Barnett and Christian Maghoma either side of the break saw Eastleigh into a comfortable 2-0 lead, but a red card to midfielder Jake Hesketh allowed Weymouth a route back into the clash.

Scoring twice with only 10 minutes to play, it had looked as if Josh McQuoid and Brandon Goodship were to rescue a point for Weymouth, only for Danny Whitehall to pop up in added time with the winner.

Final Dagger in Dover’s heart

Dover Athletic were unable to kick 2022 off with a positive result, as they slumped to their 18th defeat of the campaign away to Dagenham & Redbridge.

Junior Morias opened the scoring for Dagenham, before Josh Walker netted in front of half time to double the hosts’ advantage.

Halving the deficit after the break, Alfie Pavey’s strike looked like it could’ve paved the way towards an unlikely comeback, but Myles Weston restored their two-goal advantage midway through the second half.

Boreham Wood’s title hopes take dent against venom-less Bees

Boreham Wood’s hopes of being crowned National League champions took a blow, as the Wood stumbled to a 0-0 draw at home to Barnet.

Neither side were able to find a breakthrough during a wet and windy afternoon in Hertfordshire, with Boreham Wood now four points behind leaders Chesterfield.

For Barnet, their resurgence under Dean Brennan continues, with the Bees an outside shot for a second-half of the season playoff push.
