In the NPL First Division North, Bamber Bridge went down 2-1 at Farsley Celtic.

Adam Clayton put Celtic ahead in the 10th minute, before Paddy Miller doubled their advantage five minutes after half-time.

Brig pulled one back through Matthew Kay (69) but the home side held on.

Burscough won 2-1 at home to Brighouse Town, thanks to goals from Michael Monaghan (5) and Nicholas Ryan (65).

Thomas Robinson (56) pulled one back for the visitors from West Yorkshire.

Clitheroe went down 1-0 at home to Spennymoor Town. Nathan Fisher got the only goal in the fourth minute of the game.

Lancaster City were held 1-1 at Giant Axe by Droylsden.

Zach Clark put the Dolly Blues ahead 17 minutes from time.

But Droylsden levelled just four minutes later with a penalty from William Hasler-Cregg.

Kendal Town were beaten 3-2 at Mossley. Michael Thomas (10) put the hosts ahead but Kendal scored two swift goals from Nathan Bondswell (21) and Sam Bailey (25).

But Andrew Keogh (61) and a Thomas Pratt penalty (64) gave Mossley the points.

In the National League North, 10-man AFC Fylde lost 3-2 at home to Worcester City as they slipped to their first defeat since the turn of the year.

Worcester took the lead after just six minutes through Amadou Bakayoko before the match erupted in to controversy when Josh Langley was shown a straight red card for lashing out at James Smith.

Danny Nti converted the resultant penalty to put the visitors into the driving seat.

Goals from Dion Charles and Danny Rowe looked to have completed a sensational comeback for the Coasters.

But there was to be one final twist as Nti grabbed his second of the game to condemn Dave Challinor’s brave troops to defeat.

Southport extended their unbeaten National League run under Dino Maamria to eight games with a 0-0 draw at Chester.

In a scrappy game, neither goalkeeper was seriously tested and the Sandgrounders made it four league games in a row in which they have kept a clean sheet away from home.

With Aldershot winning at Macclesfield, Southport slipped to 15th in the table, with a home match against strugglers Boreham Wood on Saturday.
