AFC Fylde 2-1 Harrogate Town

Harrogate Town's wait to secure their place in the National League North play-offs extended following a 2-1 defeat at promotion rivals AFC Fylde.

Goals in each half by Danny Rowe and James Hardy handed victory to Fylde, who moved above North Ferriby United into second place.

Harrogate pulled a goal back late on through Warren Burrell but were unable to find an equalising goal in the final moments.

The defeat leaves Simon Weaver's men in fourth place but fifth-placed Boston United closed the gap to them to just one point with victory over sixth-placed Nuneaton Town on Saturday.

A final day win or draw against already relegated Corby Town will secure a play-off place for the Wetherby Roaders.

However, a defeat could open the door for Nuneaton who lie five points behind with two games to play.
