AFC Fylde are two points clear at the top of the Evo-Stik Northern Premeir League Premier Division table after….

…..Saturday`s comfortable win at mid-table Barwell.

Matthew Blinkhorn gave the Coasters a 26th minute lead that they crucially doubled right on half-time through Harry Winter.

The second half saw the Canaries come back into the game but they were unable to dent the scoreline, and Jamie Rainford added a stoppage time third for the visitors.

Skelmersdale United are second and they were involved in a seven-goal thriller at the West Lancashire College Stadium against Blyth Spartans.

Adam Morning gave Skem an early 5th minute lead that Craig Hubbard cancelled out within 2 minutes.

Hubbard`s second on 29 minutes gave the visitors the lead but Shaun Tuck pulled Skem back on terms 6 minutes later and then made it 3-2 from the penalty spot on 43 minutes.

The scoring still wasn`t over in the opening half as Hubbard completed his hat-trick to send the sides in ties at 3-3.

As often happens, the second half was a much closer affair and Skem won it with a Kenny Strickland effort with 11 minutes to go.

Matlock Town moved up to fourth in the table after a 3-1 win at Marston Road against Stafford Rangers, who had the perfect start when Jermaine Johnson put them in front inside the opening minute.

But Daryll Thomas levelled from the spot on 23 minutes and then two goals in 2 minutes leading up to the hour-mark from Lavell White saw th3e Gladiators to a match-winning 3-1 lead.

Ilkeston FC complete the top five after they saw off Frickley Athletic 1-0 at the New Manor Ground.

Arron Webster`s penalty with 11 minutes of the game to go proved to be enough for Kevin Wilson`s side.

A crowd of 1,440 at The Walks saw King`s Lynn Town and FC United of Manchester share a goalless draw, while Marine hit three without reply at the Arriva Stadium against Stocksbridge Park Steels.

Tony Rendell gave the Mariners a great start with a goal in the 5th minute and Josh Sumner doubled that after 23 minutes.

Will Jones completed the scoring when he made it 3-0 with 12 minutes to go.

Experienced striker Lee Morris bagged a brace in the 2nd and 11th minutes as Buton saw off Nantwich Town 2-0 at Silverlands.

Droylsden`s woes continued on Saturday and their 3-0 defeat at the Butcher`s Arms against Grantham Town leaves them ten points from the safety-mark.

Romaine Graham gave the Gingerbreads a 7th minute lead that Rhys Lewis doubled 7 minutes later.

Michael Towey added a third 5 minutes later, and somehow that was the end of the scoring.

Danny Andrews gave Witton Albion a 27th minute lead at the Turnbull Ground against Whitby Town.

But the Seasiders earned a share of the points with a Graeme Armstrong effort 7 minutes later.
