YORK City’s next opponents, Kidderminster Harriers, suffered their first league defeat since early October at Hereford on Tuesday evening.

Kidderminster had been on a run of 10 straight matches without defeat in the Vanarama National League North heading into the clash with the Bulls.

Goals in either half from Hereford’s Jaanai Gordon and Tom Owen-Evans secured all three points for the hosts.

The result leaves Kidderminster fifth in the table while Hereford now sit 14th, level on 26 points with 13th-placed York, but with a lower goal difference.

Elsewhere in the division, Gateshead now top the table after comfortably beating bottom club AFC Telford United.

The visitors took an early lead through Mace Goodridge but strikes from Cedwyn Scott and Paul Blackett put Heed ahead at half time.

Blackett doubled his side’s lead and his personal tally before the hour mark and former City forward Macauley Langstaff rounded off the evening by adding his name to the scoresheet.

Southport strengthened their position in the play-offs with a 1-0 win at home to Bradford (Park Avenue).

Jordan Archer scored the only goal of the game.
