Harrogate are first among equals
NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH: Originally formed in 1914, Harrogate Town had never been league equals to York City prior to this season, but have now taken maximum points from their rivals.
Second-half goals from Jake Wright and Mark Beck saw titlehopefuls Harrogate match their 2-0 victory at Wetherby Road in September.
The Minstermen,are now clinging to the final play-off place, with Chorley just two points behind them with a game in hand.
Adam Bartlett saved smartly to deny former York and Sheffield United striker Wright, before Joe Leesley fired over.
Wright made no mistake on 51 minutes, bursting down the right channel and blasting home a low shot into the bottom corner.
Sean Newton headed against the bar for York, before unmarked Beck settled matters midway through the second period when he headed home.
Stockport are ahead of the Minstermen following a sixth straight win, 3-1 at alreadyrelegated North Ferriby, for whom Lewis Collins scored.
Bradford Park Avenue, meanwhile, defeated relegationthreatened Leamington after recalled striker Adam Boyes scored the game’s only goal in its opening minute, following up after Jamie Spencer’s longrange attempt had been tipped onto a post by Tony Breeden.
Mark Ross went on to skim the crossbar for Avenue, who survived scares when Junior English saw a header disallowed for offside and Steven Drench saved a penalty kick from Matt Dodd.
