Yeovil Town crashed to their second damaging defeat inside a week, as relegation rivals Macclesfield Town did the double over them, with a 0-2 win at Huish Park. The Silkmen took advantage in the midst of a dreadful first half performance that saw James Pearson unmarked inside the box to convert midway through that period. Just beyond the half hour mark, Harry Smith extended the visitors' lead when he received a cross from former Glovers loanee Reece Cole. Despite having hit the post early on in the game through Alex Fisher, the Glovers ran out of ideas during the second half, in a defeat that leaves them just three points above the drop zone.
