THE big scores kept rolling in in National League North during York City’s blank weekend, with 34 goals going in across 10 games.

City were due to welcome Hereford to the LNER Community Stadium on Saturday but the fixture was postponed on Friday following reports of Covid problems within the visitors’ ranks.

It was another day of frustration for a side who have already experienced a decent amount of disappointment with injuries hitting their senior defensive players.

After notching two wins on the bounce - scoring a combined seven goals in victories over Spennymoor Town and Farsley Celtic - and hearing that Michael Duckworth and Josh King could be ready to re-take the field, the Minstermen were surely looking forward to the chance to add to their momentum.

Instead, they watched from the sidelines as a division-wide goal-fest nudged them up to 11th in the early standings.

AFC Fylde and Brackley Town continued their unbeaten starts, winning 2-1 at Bradford (Park Avenue) and 1-0 at home too Southport, respectively. With 16 points apiece, the Coasters sit top on goal difference.

Spennymoor were the day’s big winners, hammering Farsley 6-0 at The Brewery Field. Glen Taylor scored a second-half hat-trick to lift Spenny into fourth spot.

Chorley, who thumped Gloucester City 9-0 last weekend, notched a 4-1 victory over 10-man Chester while Boston United - who have dropped to 13th - also saw a man red-carded in their 2-0 defeat at Leamington.

Curzon Ashton are flying in third after winning 2-1 at Gloucester and fifth-placed Kidderminster Harriers lost 3-2 at home to sixth-placed Gateshead.

Seventh-placed Kettering won 2-0 at Guiseley and basement side Darlington held eighth-placed Blyth Spartans to a 2-2 draw.

Alfreton beat Telford 3-1.
