  • Altrincham 1-1 Eastleigh

Play-off chasing Eastleigh missed out on a huge opportunity to break into the play-offs, as they failed to take advantage of their game in hand.

After a goalless first 45, the Spitfires took the lead courtesy of former Port Vale striker Tyrone Barnett, who graciously hung in the air before nodding Michael Green's cross into the back of the net.

Altrincham, who were admittedly playing for nothing, were keen to be the villains of the story as the referee proposed an advantage following a foul on Josh Hancock, but Ryan Colclough was on hand to steer the ball home from an obscure angle.

It looks increasingly likely that the two sides will face on another once again in the 2021/22 season, as Eastleigh are now up against it on the final day, where they will face Solihull Moors. Altrincham hosrthe league runners-up, Torquay United.

  • Barnet 2-0 Maidenhead United

Whilst it has been a forgettable campaign for Simon Bassey's Barnet, the Bees left the Hive in a buzz following a prolific 2-0 victory over Maidenhead United.

Barnet welcomed fans back to the ground, which had clearly been missed throughout the season, and enjoyed a first goal for the club through Harry Taylor, who confidently tucked the ball into the bottom corner.

And just eight minutes later, the Bees doubled their lead through former Southend United midfielder Anthony Wordsworth after some excellent passing and link-up play.

Maidenhead's play-off ambitions have now faltered and died, but both sides will be hoping to progress in the coming season.

  • Kings Lynn Town 1-1 Solihull Moors

A first season in the National League hasn't quite gone to plan for Kings Lynn Town this season, but the Linnets were able to hold a Solihull Moors side currently on the mend.

Having won five games on the bounce prior to kick-off, the Moors were pegged back half an hour into the contest, as a whipped corner was thumped into the back of the net by Ross Barrows.

Solihull did respond however, courtesy of former Aberdeen attacker Adam Rooney. The experienced striker was teed up by Alex Addai, who was recently released by Cheltenham Town, before Rooney could divert home from close range.

Both sides end their 2020/21 campaign at home this coming Saturday, with Solihull looking to spoil the party at Eastleigh and Kings Lynn tackling an Aldershot Town side looking to avoid their fourth consecutive defeat.
