In Division K, Preston North End (Myerscough) thumped bottom of the table MMU 6-0, ending their league run of three matches without a win.

The victory sees them remain in second place, eight points behind Chester with 21 points from eleven matches.

For MMU, they now go bottom of the pile after winning only once after 10 matches in Division K this season.

League leaders Chester could only draw 1-1 away to an in-form AFC Fylde side, which still maintains their unbeaten record in the league.

AFC Fylde took the lead through a George Hassall header, but a goal from substitute Lloyd Marsh-Hughes cancelled out the home sides effort to see the table toppers take a point away from home.

Chester dropping two points still means they have accumulated an impressive 29 points from a possible 33 available after eleven matches this season.

After the draw, AFC Fylde stay in fourth spot, four points behind second placed Preston North End (Myerscough).

Stockport County managed to stay close behind second spot after beating Hyde United 5-2 away from home.

Countyís seventh win of the league season sees them remain in third place with 19 points.

For Hyde United, they missed the chance to go level on points with Stockport, so remain in fifth place on 16 points, after losing their fifth match of the season.

A seven-goal thriller at the bottom of the league saw Stalybridge Celtic beat Crewe Alexandra 4-3, giving the home side only their second victory of the season.

Stalybridge are now off the bottom of the table and go four points behind the team they beat, Crewe Alexandra.

The defeat for Crewe saw them lose their eighth league match this season and keeps them on nine points, one place and one point behind sixth placed Chorley, who didnít play this week.

Next week, there are only two Division K fixtures scheduled with a bottom of the table clash seeing MMU hosting Stalybridge Celtic.

Also, Stockport County have the chance to go into second place if they can win their home match against Hyde United.

These fixtures are to be played on Wednesday 14th February.
