Conference North review 1 Nov 2014
The other play off places are now occupied by Solihull Moors and Chorley. Moors condemned Hyde to their 11th defeat of the season. Ryan Beswick (8) struck early on and he added a second on 61 minutes before Darryl Knights (76) completed the 3-0 win.
The Vanarama Conference North table could have looked even worse for County given Oxford City were also leading, 3-1, at half time. They went ahead on 10 minutes at North Ferriby United through Darren Pond. North Ferriby levelled the scores through Mark Gray (28) but it was a false dawn as the visitors responded with two more goals of their own before half time as avier Rodriguez (32) and Pond (33) completed the first half scoring. North Ferriby turned the result around i the second half as Tom Denton (62), Nathan Jarman (67) from the penalty spot and Jamie Yates (78) sent the visitors home pointless and to add to their woes their latest Spanish recruit Francisco Insa was red carded.
That home defeat for Stalybridge Celtic mentioned earlier saw them to drop to next to bottom as Tamworth and Gloucester City both recorded away victories. Tamworth took the lead at Cemetery Road through Brendon Daniels (13) but Chib Chilaka (18) soon levelled things. The visitors responded well to this set-back and by half time held a 4-1 lead as Reece Styche (37) and Kayden Jackson (39) scored in quick succession and Daniels (45) added his second. In the second half Bradford Park Avenue scored he only additional goal through Ryan Qualter (52).
That leaves us with a couple of games to cover - and they both ended in draws. Brackley Town and visitors Colwyn Bay shared goals in the first 10 minutes of their game. Marc Williams (8) put the Welshmen ahead but they quickly conceded a penalty which was converted by Ryan Rowe (10). No further goals were added.
Meanwhile Leamington looked like they were going to have a fairly easy day with a Matt Dodd brace (14 & 26), the second from the penalty spot, establishing a 2-0 lead. That should have of what should have been a comfortable win. Worcester had other deas and pulled a goal back through Jordan Murphy (39). It was Mike Symons (87) goals that claimed a point for City.
County will now need to look at taking advantage of successive home games to get back in amongst those leading clubs - not least with trips to Chorley and AFC Fylde coming up soon afterwards during November. The current table is shown below.
|10||North Ferriby U||14||6||4||4||23||19||4||22|
Kristian Dennis's goal at Harrogate sees him join the second placed men on the divisional top scorer list with four other men, ahead of his three game suspension. All of them are 3 behind top scorer Omar Bogie. If FA Cup goals are added in Kristian lies second on his own with 11 goals, one behind Bogie and Fylde's Richie Allen - who will be looking to add to his 4 FA Cup goals next weekend.
|12||Omar Bogie||Solihull Moors|
