HARROGATE Railway failed to continue their charge in the Presidents Cup after losing a highly entertaining clash away at Belper Town 3-2.

Rail’ went into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals by Danny Husband and Luke Durham either side of half-time.

But a late second half blitz by Belper saw them grab three goals in the space of 22 minutes to book their place in the next round of the competition.

Nigel Danby’s side will be looking for an immediate comeback to form on Saturday when they welcome Cammell Laird to Station View in the Evo-Stick First Division North (3pm ko).
