The latest from around the league

We dropped one place to twelve in the league after being held to a 0-0 draw by ten man Hereford on Saturday.

Elsewhere league leaders York City were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Kidderminster, but still have an eight point gap at the top of the table. Kallum Griffiths put York ahead in the first half, but Ashley Hemmings earned Harriers a point inside the final ten minutes.

Second placed Chester were not able to take advantage as they drew at seventh placed Brackley.  Bradley Jackson put the visitors ahead before Thierry Audel earned Brackley a point.

Southport are in third after they comfortably beat Leamington 4-1. David Morgan, Bradley Bauress had Port 2-0 ahead inside 12 minutes.  Josh March scored a penalty to bring the Brakes back into the game just after the break, but two further goals from Morgan sealed a hat-trick and the three points.

King’s Lynn slipped to fourth after late heartache at home to Altrincham. It took till the 77th minute for the scoring to start as the hosts went ahead through Adam Marriott, but Josh Hancock levelled just two minutes later. Marriott again put King’s Lynn ahead with seven minutes left, but in the 95th minute James Jones earned Alty a 2-2 draw.

Fifth place Farsley fell to a shock 2-0 defeat at Blyth. Robbie Dale opened the scoring in the 64th minute before Callum Roberts sealed the win.

Guiseley are sixth after an impressive 3-2 win at Gateshead who dropped to 14th. The away side took the lead early on through Aaron Martin and further goals from Hamza Bencherif and Felix Kaine put them 3-0 ahead. Nicky Deverdics and Joshua Kayode gave the Heed hope, but they could not grab a late equaliser.

Spennymoor are up to eighth and are one of five sides on 22 points after they won 2-0 at Alfreton to leap frog them in the table. Rob Ramshaw scored both goals either side of half time for the Brewers.

Boston are one of the other sides outside the playoff places on goal difference after a 3-1 success at Telford. Adam Walker put Telford ahead in the first half, but a ten minute Jordan Thewlis hat-trick after the break gave Pilgrims the victory.

Kettering moved out of the relegation places with victory over Bradford Park Avenue, who are now at the bottom of the table.  Lindon Meikle, Connor Kennedy, Ben Milnes and Aaron O’Connor gave the Poppies a 4-0 victory.

Curzon Ashton are now in the bottom two following a 2-2 draw at Gloucester. Sean Miller put Curzon ahead very early on with Spencer Hamilton levelling after quarter of an hour for the hosts. Hamilton then put through his own net to give the Nash the lead back, but his blushes were spared by Marlon Jackson’s equaliser in the second half.
