SELBY Town, buoyed by their 2-0 midweek victory at Tadcaster Albion that put them into the West Riding County Cup final, are up to fifth in Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One.

The Robins won 4-0 at AFC Emley on Saturday to climb from sixth, with Ryan Woodhead and Liam Flanagan both bagging braces.

The pitch at the Fantastic Media Ground passed a 10.30am inspection, and the visitors made only one change from the team that booked a decider against Farsley Celtic, with Danny Snaith replacing Dan O'Connor.

Joe Dale was denied by a great save in the sixth minute, but he provided an assist a minute later for Woodhead to score at the second attempt.

Paul Hagreen made a great save in the 25th minute, but generally Selby's defence denied AFC Emley any clear-cut chances.

Seven minutes later, it was 2-0 after Flanagan scored from a well-worked free-kick, with Dale again providing an assist, and Flanagan made it 3-0 in the 34th minute after rounding the keeper.

Woodhead put the result to bed in the 47th minute, with the Robins' fourth goal coming from a looping effort from close range.

Hagreen smothered a rare home raid in the 66th minute, and Flanagan went close to his hat-trick 11 minutes later with a curling shot.

Dale then put a close-range effort wide in the 84th minute as Selby Town continued to hold sway.

Meanwhile, Knaresborough Town extended their lead to eight points with a 2-0 victory at Ollerton Town, who dropped to 15th.

Goals came from Stephen Bromley in the 28th minute and Robert Youhill in the 51st as Town took advantage of Eccleshill United's match at Campion being postponed.

In the Premier Division, Pickering Town's call-off at Staveley Miners' Welfare meant that the Pikes dropped from third to fifth as they were overtaken by both Maltby Main and Pontefract Collieries.

That match has now been re-arranged for Wednesday, April 4.

Things are getting more interesting in Vanarama National League North as second-placed Harrogate Town won 3-1 at Leamington, while leaders Salford City fell 1-0 at fifth-placed York City.

Town moved to within two points of the leaders, and matched their points tally from last season.

Mark Beck's goal for Harrogate on the half-hour was all that separated the teams at half-time, but that advantage was cancelled out eight minutes after the restart by Liam Canavan.

Town restored their lead two minutes later as Leeds United youngster Liam Kitching claimed the first goal of his senior career at the far post, following a corner.

Dom Knowles made it 3-1 when he beat Tony Breeden in the 76th minute, but the hosts did have the chance to set up a frantic finale three minutes later, only for James Belshaw to keep out Canavan's penalty.

In Evo-Stik League Division One North, the matches between Prescot Cables and Tadcaster Albion and Mossley and Scarborough Athletic were both postponed.
