 Northwich Victoria took advantage of a slip from Hednesford Town to move into second place in the Evo-Stik League Premier Division on Saturday.

Vics notched a 2-1 win in an exciting clash with FC United of Manchester, while the Pitmen fell to a 1-0 defeat at Worksop Town – Tigers skipper Mark Hudson with the goal. Chester FC remain top following a 2-1 win at Marine.

At the other end of the table, Whitby Town remain the only team in the three Evo-Stik NPL divisions without a home win, losing 4-3 to fellow strugglers Buxton, who picked up their first win in twelve games.

Burscough remain bottom of the division after a defeat to Chasetown, who are finding a good rhythm with just one loss in the last seven games.

Kendal Town picked up a much needed 4-2 win over Stocksbridge Park Steels, who haven’t won on the road in six attempts, while Stafford Rangers picked up their first home win in seven games against a Frickley Athletic side who have now lost five on the bounce.

Elsewhere, Mickleover Sports are without a win in ten games now, but came from behind to earn a home point against Ashton United.

A frozen pitch put paid to Bradford Park Avenue’s clash with Chorley, ice and snow caused the postponement of Matlock Town’s match with Rushall Olympic, while North Ferriby United’s trip to Nantwich Town was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
