It’s Not A Day To Remember For The Teams At The Top!

By Sam Elliott

The season’s biggest crowd mostly left disappointed in a tough day for the teams at the top in all three divisions.

Phil Brown’s Kidderminster defeated Oldham Athletic 2-1 and almost 12,000 saw Harriers spoil the party - Reiss McNally’s winner gave his team a big survival boost.

Chesterfield fail to win for a third game in a row and the champagne will remain on ice for a while longer. Rochdale came from 2-0 down to take a point, Devante Rodney scoring the leveller.

Southend United’s strugglers are over after a great win - a 4-1 win over top seven side Aldershot lifted the mood at Roots Hall.

Marcus Dinanga scored a hat-trick as Gateshead showed their promotion credentials by thrashing Oxford City 4-0.

Danny Searle’s sensational start at Ebbsfleet United continues. It’s a third win on the spin after they left Dorking Wanderers with an easy 4-1 win. Rakish Bingham scored twice.

Woking could only draw 1-1 with Wealdstone - Charley Kendall scoring with his first tough to give the Cards survival hope.

FC Halifax win again, leaving Dagenham with another success. Andrew Oluwabori got the winner.

Solihull Moors look the real deal this time around. Callum Maycock and Tahvon Campbell goals ended Hartlepool’s good form.

Callum Stead grabbed two as Barnet bettered York City and in the live game Eastleigh turned on the second half style to beat Bromley - Paul McCallum and Scott Quigley on target.

Reece Smith continues to impress this season and Maidenhead United ended their barren run with a 3-1 win at Altrincham. AFC Fylde need to get back on track and fast after Boreham Wood blitzed them 4-0.

The Glovers lost for only the fifth time this season as Chelmsford City in-form midfielder Charlie Ruff sent the Clarets into second place.

They leapfrog Worthing, who lost 1-0 at home to Braintree Town. Aaron Blair earned the Iron victory on the south coast.

This time they were made to pay for dropped points against Curzon Ashton as Scunthorpe United closed the gap thanks to Will Evans’ very late winner at home to Alfreton Town.

Dan Jarvis and Josh McCammon both found the net as Peterborough Sports added to Rushall Olympic’s woes. They’re in the bottom four now after King’s Lynn’s home point against Farsley Celtic.

Gloucester City keep battling, Theo Robinson got the only goal in the 1-0 win over Scarborough as Kieran Phillips made things safe for Hereford at ten man Southport.
