Nationwide North Wrap

A number of Conference football games had to be abandoned on Saturday afternoon because of waterlogged pitches.

The match between Alfreton Town and Worksop Town being called off and games at Lancaster City and Redditch United both postponed.

League leaders Droylsden picked up another three points against Stalybridge Celtic at Bower Fold with Steve Jagielka and top scorer Terry Fearns getting their names on the scoresheet.

Lee Ellington pulled one back for Celtic with a penalty kick 4 minutes from time but it was just a consolation goal as Droylsden held on for the win.

Hinckley United picked up another win as they cruised to a 2-0 home victory against Moor Green thanks to goals from Carl Heggs and Leon Kelly.

Hucknall Town moved up to third place on the table with a hard fought 3-2 win over Gainsborough Trinity at the Northolme.

The visitors opened the scoring through Liam Hearns before Trinity equalised in the 12th minute with Simon Bird scoring from the spot.

Bird was on target again after the break to give the home side the lead but Paul Dempsey equalised in the 63rd minute and Hearns bagged his second and the winning goal 9 minutes from time.

Promotion hopefuls Blyth Spartans held on to fourth place on the table despite a goalless draw against Harrogate Town at Croft Park.

Kettering Town battled to a 3-2 win over Nuneaton Borough at Rockingham Road. Andy Hall gave the home side the lead before a Luke Graham own goal pulled Boro level in the 23rd minute.

Former Kettering defender Derek Brown then scored an own goal and Rene Howe added a third 4 minutes later.

Rob Oddy reduced Nuneaton's deficit to one goal 6 minutes later but Nuneaton managed to hold on to the lead to jump up three places in the table.

Struggling Scarborough recorded a much-needed 2-0 victory over Farsley Celtic thanks to goals from Jamie Vermiglio on 39 minutes and Darren Thornton a minute before the break.

Vauxhall Motors claimed tenth place on the table after a single goal victory over Hyde United.
