Second placed Harrogate lost for the first time on the road this season, as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Spennymoor Town.

However, Rob Ramshaw scored just before half time for Spennymoor and it was enough to give them the win to leave them just three points behind their opponents.

Chorley dropped out of the playoff places after being held to a 2-2 draw at home to Nuneaton.
