Results Round-Up

Gloucester have gone seven points clear of National League North after coming from behind to beat Kidderminster 3-2 this afternoon.

Kiddie raced into a 2-0 lead inside 12 minutes through Ethan Freemantle and Sam Austin before Keanu Marsh-Brown reduced the deficit. Matt McClure made it 2-2 in the 63rd minute, with Jordan Young winning it 11 minutes later.

In the day's only other game, Fylde won 2-0 at Telford and remain fourth.

Meanwhile, Chorley are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after beating Championship side Derby 2-0.

The whole of Derby's first team squad are in isolation due to Covid, so the Rams had to field a very young side, which included former Hereford loanee goalkeeper Matt Yates.

Harvey Smith, another player who has previously been on loan at the Bulls, came off the bench for Chorley. The draws for both the fourth and fifth rounds will be on Monday evening.
