Your News National League 2 North review

It was another weekend of high drama and closely fought matches in National League One, none more so than at the Woodlands where runaway leaders Fylde had to rely on a try in the dying seconds to record a 13th straight win. Luctonians looked set to become the first side to deny the Lancastrians a positive result since Westoe beat them on November 20th, however player- coach Alex Davidson was handed a late red card and Mark Nelsons men took full advantage to score a last- minute winner through Callum McShane.

Whilst Fylde look certain of the title, the race for the second promotion spot is still very much up for grabs with only two points separating the next three sides. Westoe swapped places with Leicester Lions in second after they won at home in a hard- fought encounter against Huddersfield and the Lions went down to a one- point loss at Hull Ionians.

Fourth- placed Loughborough Students are still the favourites to go up alongside Fylde, as they have eight games remaining, more than any of their rivals, and look in good shape following Saturdays 28-21 win over competitive Caldy.

One- point proved the difference at Preston Grasshoppers as Harrogate came away from Lightfoot Green with the narrowest of wins in an action- paced encounter that produced nine tries. There were further away wins for mid- table Hull and, at the bottom the table, Nuneaton and Kendal both won on the road against Rugby Lions and Morley respectively to boost their survival chances.
