AFC Fylde extended their lead at the top of the Vanarama Conference North to five points on Sunday after Barrow could only draw with basement side Hyde. Hyde took a shock 2-0 lead with goals from former Blackpool striker Louis Almond and D’Arcy O’Connor. Barrow fought back and looked to have won the game when a Karl Ledshaw brace and goals from Andy Cook and Jason Walker made it 4-2 to the Bluebirds but late goals from Brizell and Masterson gave Hyde a point in new manager Gary Lowe’s first game back in charge of the Tigers.

Guiseley and Chorley had their respective games called off against Worcester City and Oxford City so Tamworth took full advantage with an impressive win against Stockport County at Edgeley Park. The Lambs took the lead on the stroke of half time through defender Javan Vidal and Connor Taylor doubled their lead midway through the second half. Tamworth consolidate fourth place in the table whilst Stockport slip to tenth.

Boston United are up to sixth after a 5-0 thrashing at home to Colwyn Bay, with Colwyn boss Frank Sinclair resigning from the club after the game. A brace from Nicky Walker sandwiched by an own goal from Rob Hopley and strikes from Marc Newsham and top scorer Dayle Southwell. Colwyn Bay are now 15th and without a win in their last seven league games.

Northampton loanee David Moyo’s brace gave Brackley Town a 2-1 win at Gainsborough Trinity. Brackley have enjoyed an improved run of form since their defeat to Fylde and are now 13th in the table after 3 wins in their last 5. Danny Forrest had equalised for Trinity on the hour mark before Moyo’s second gave Brackley all three points.

North Ferriby are still in the play-off hunt but would have been targeting more than a point at third bottom Gloucester City. Gloucester took the lead on 33 minutes through Harry White but a Nathan Jarman header in the 93rd minute rescued a point for Ferriby.  North Ferriby have lost just once in their last five league games.

Hednesford Town left North Yorkshire in good spirit after a 2-0 win at Harrogate Town saw them close the gap to the play-off places. First half goals from James Hurst and Ben Bailey sealed the win for the Pitmen whilst Harrogate are looking over their shoulder at the relegation zone, just five points ahead of Gloucester City.

Leamington edged out Bradford Park Avenue in a seven goal thriller at the New Windmill Ground. Lee Moore and Stefan Morley had given the Brakes a 2-0 lead before a quick brace from Chib Chilaka levelled the scores before half time. Another goal from Moore and a goal from Goddard put Leamington in control with 25 minutes to go but Simon Ainge’s goal 10 minutes from time gave Bradford hope but they couldn’t find an equaliser.

Solihull Moors have now lost three games on the bounce after a disappointing home defeat to Stalybridge Celtic who, by contrast, have now won three games on the bounce. Stalybridge took the lead on the stroke of half time when Paul Ennis tucked away a penalty and Kevin Holsgrove doubled their lead 10 minutes after the restart. Darryl Knights goal on 66 minutes wasn’t enough for Solihull who slip to 7th after their recent run of poor form.
