In the Conference Premier, Southport could only manage a scoreless draw against relegation-threatened Nuneaton.

A high wind and bouncing ball made conditions difficult and both teams seemed too intent on giving nothing away, rather than trying to win what became a tedious aerial battle.

Port’s Richard Brodie did get the ball in the net once in the 70th minute but was ruled offside.

And the only two real chances in the game came in added time when, first Connor McCarthy cleared a ball off the line with the Southport keeper beaten, then after the one good build-up in the game, McCarthy elected to pass to Brodie whose shot hit keeper Max Crocombe’s foot.

The draw kept the Sandgrounders in 19th position in the Conference, level on points with Alfreton Town.

In the NPL First Division North, it was also a blank day for Bamber Bridge, held 0-0 at home by Scarborough Athletic.

Clitheroe, meanwhile, saw off high-flying Darlington 1883 2-1, with Daniel Brady and Sefton Gonzales, from the penalty spot, on target.

And that after David Dowson had given Darlo a sixth-minute lead.

Kendal Town went down 3-2 at home Ossett Albion, Nicholas Matthews getting the winner for the visitors seven minutes from time.

Jordan Connerton (19) put Kendal ahead but Matthews equalised.

Connor Bower scored the from spot to give Ossett a half-time advantage.

Jack Kelleher (55) thought he had earned Kendal a point, until Matthews (83) got the clincher.

Lancaster City made it a miserable day for owners the Class of ’92, when they won 2-0 at Salford City.

Tom Kilifin and Ryan Winder scored quickfire goals to earn the Dolly Blues the three points.

Burscough had an off day at Radcliffe Borough, despite taking the lead through Ed Toner.

Sam McMahon and Steve Foster, four minutes from the end, gave Borough the victory.
