How The Alex players out on loan got on over the weekend
Michael Raynes was one of the standout performers for Hartlepool United as they held high-flying Leyton Orient to a 1-1 draw in the National League.
Pools could've won it late on, but missed a penalty in a game where Raynes' dominance & leadership at the back played a big role in keeping the O's quiet.
In the National League North, Lewis Reilly continued his fine scoring streak notching yet again as Curzon Ashton came from 2-0 down at half-time to beat Alfreton Town 3-2 at home.
There was disappointment for Billy Sass-Davies as his FC United of Manchester side lost a fifth straight game to fall second bottom in the table. Billy played 90 minutes of the narrow 2-1 reverse to Altrincham.
Josh Lundstram too got 90 minutes under his belt for Nuneaton Borough, but they remain marooned at the foot of the table after a heavy 5-1 home defeat to Boston United.
Nantwich Town lost ground in their bid for promotion in the Evo-Stik Premier Division, falling to fourth in the league after a 2-1 defeat to rivals Farsley Celtic - Will Jasskelainen kept goal for the Dabbers.
