The latest from around the league

Our defeat on Saturday at home to Telford saw us slip to 15th in the table below the visitors ahead of our next game at 17th placed Leamington on Tuesday night.

King’s Lynn Town remain the surprise leaders at the top of the table after a 1-0 win at home to Gateshead.  Adam Marriott scored the only goal of the game with 17 minutes to go for the hosts.

York remain just behind King’s Lynn after they won 1-0 at home to Alfreton. Jordan Burrow  scored the only goal in the first half.

Chester are third after a 2-1 win over bottom of the table Bradford Park Avenue. Billy Priestley gave the visitors a surprise lead, but two quick fire goals at the start of the second half from Anthony Dudley and Akwasi Asante were enough for Chester.

Southport moved above Spennymoor, who weren’t playing, into fourth after a 1-0 success at Kidderminster Harriers. Davern Green scored the winner inside the final 20 minutes.

The result of the day came from sixth place Brackley who won 6-0 away to second bottom Blyth. Lee Ndlovu took the match ball home with a hat-trick, Wes York also scored two after Gareth Dean had opened the scoring.

Farsley are just outside the playoffs after a stoppage time equaliser at Hereford. Taylor Allen had given the Bulls the lead in the second half before Jack Higgins made it 1-1 in the 92nd minute.

Guiseley came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Leamington. Josh Clarke and Josh March put the Brakes ahead. However, they were reduced to ten men and Guiseley grabbed a point through Braad Nicholson and Scott Garner.

In the final game of the day Gloucester and Kettering held each over to a 2-2 draw.  Jack Senior put Gloucester ahead, but goals from Aaron O’Connor and Matt Taylor turned the game in Kettering’s favour. However, there was still time for Fabien Robert to earn a share of the spoils for the hosts.
