NATIONAL League North leaders Gloucester City extended their advantage at the summit to seven points as York City sat out their penultimate fixture of their isolation period.

Fifteen points behind Gloucester, York are 13th in the table with eight points on the board.

The Minstermen are due back in action next Saturday after a second positive Covid-19 test put their season on hold. Saturday should have seen the visit of second-placed AFC Fylde.

And with the Coasters out of action, the table-topping Tigers took full advantage, Akwasi Asante scoring his eighth league goal of the season in a 2-1 win at Guiseley. The hosts’ consolation came late on from the penalty conceded with Kevin Dawson’s second bookable offence.

Dawson’s dismissal was one of four red cards shown on Saturday.

Chester left-back Joel Taylor received a second yellow in the Seals’ hard-earned 1-1 draw at 17th-placed Brackley Town, while Curzon Ashton’s Jamaican striker Darren Stephenson was sent off in injury time as the Nash lost 3-0 to Leamington at the Tameside Stadium.

Former Minsterman Andy Bond saw only eight minutes of the second half as his fourth-placed AFC Telford United side won 2-1 at Bradford Park Avenue.

A win could have seen Kidderminster Harriers overtake Fylde on goal difference but they remain third after being limited to a 2-2 draw at Farsley Celtic.

Southport, in fifth, were thumped 4-1 at Gateshead, who joined Chester and Boston United on 10 points. Boston were due to host Spennymoor Town but the game was postponed due to a positive Pilgrims Covid-19 test last week.

Blyth Spartans’ trip to Kettering Town was called off for the same reason.
