It`s four games without a win for long-time leaders Bradford Park Avenue now as Chorley now lead the Vanarama National League North table by......

.....six points after winning 4-1 at home to play-off chasers Altrincham on Saturday.

 

The Magpies trailed at half-time at Victory Park to a 23rd minute Max Harrop effort for the Robins.

 

Alex Newby equalised 9 minutes after the break and Josh Wilson put the hosts in front 10 minutes later.

 

Newby`s second 6 minutes from time effectively killed off Altrincham, but Courtney Meppen-Walter definitely did when he made it 4-1 in stoppage time.

 

At the Horsfall Stadium, Avenue suffered a 3-2 defeat to an FC United of Manchester side who won for the first time in six matches but are still in the bottom three.

 

Oli Johnson put the home side ahead after 38 minutes, but crucially, Chris Sharp equalised right on half-time.

 

Jack Bannister then gave the Red Rebels a 64th minute lead, swiftly followed by a third from Kurt Willoughby.

 

Lewis Knight pulled one back on 77 minutes, but Avenue weren`t able to find a leveller.

 

The only other side in the top seven in action on Saturday were Chester FC and they were held to a 1-1 draw at the Swansway Chester Stadium by another of the strugglers, Guiseley AFC.

 

The Lions led through Olu Odejayi`s 19th minute effort but then had Andy Halls red carded after 38 minutes for a poor tackle on Gary Roberts.

 

Anthony Dudley equalised 10 minutes after the break, but the ten-men battled on to earn a very good point.

 

Bottom-markers Nuneaton Borough remain ten points adrift of the safety mark after losing 4-2 at Liberty Way to another side in the bottom half, Curzon Ashton.

 

Yusif Ceesay gave Boro an early 4th minute lead that Ollie Crankshaw cancelled out from the spot after 19 minutes.

 

Just past the hour-mark, Lewis Reilly put the Nash in front and on 77 minutes, Jonathan Hunt added a third, with Luke Wall making it 4-2 from the spot in time added on at the end.

 

It finished goalless at the Impact Arena between Alfreton Town and Darlington, while in-form Southport hammered Leamington 5-1 at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

 

There were braces for Bradley Bauress and Dion Charles, with David Morgan sandwiching the other – all in the second half after Jack Edwards had given the Brakes a 34th minute lead.

 

Boston United accounted for Kidderminster Harriers at Aggborough, courtesy of Max Wright’s 6th minute opener and Ben Davies’ third penalty in four matches 6 minutes before half-time, although he later missed another from the spot.

 

Joe Ironside had levelled for the hosts in between times but the Pilgrims battled their way to an important three-point haul.

 

Harriers had sub Kane Richards sent-off for pushing the referee.
