It is as you were at the top of the table thanks to victories for all of the top three. Salford won 3-2 at Alfreton Town, Harrogate were 2-0 victors at Kidderminster and Brackley cruised to a 3-0 win at home to resurgent Darlington. Blyth Spartans took advantage of the Harriers slip, to jump above them in to fourth place, courtesy of a 3-0 home win against Bradford Park Avenue. After our 1-0 win at Spennymoor Town, we remain 18th but are now level on points with Alfreton and Darlington.
The Boro' have a game, or two, in hand on everyone in the bottom half of the table, with the exception of Telford, and are just three points away from Boston in 11th, that after the Pilgrims were beaten 1-0 at home by Leamington. Chorley stayed in touch with the playoffs as they beat Gainsborough 1-0 in Lancashire. Trinity remain 21st, four points behind Leamington in 19th. Telford also remain in the drop zone, Tom Shaw's 94th minute equaliser at the Lamb denied the Bucks victory as Tamworth fought back for a 2-2 draw.
North Ferriby United continue to struggle as they were defeated 3-0 at home by Southport. The Sandgrounders have won four of five and in Jason Gilchrist they may have the hottest striker in the division. Gilchrist has notched six goals in that spell and has shot to the top of the goal-scoring chart with 22. The Villagers meanwhile edge ever-closer to relegation, 26 points from safety, with just 33 left to play for.
Elsewhere, our midweek opponents, Stockport County won 1-0 away at FC United of Manchester to keep themselves in with a shout of making the playoffs. United have now failed to score in four of their previous five games. Finally, Niall Cummins' first half hat-trick highlighted Curzon Ashton's 4-1 victory at home to York City. The Nash have scored 10 goals in their last three games having scored just 31 in the 27 matches prior. There are four games scheduled in the Vanarama National League North on Tuesday evening, check back later in the week for a round-up.
