An eighth minute Eddie Cass own goal consigned new Hemsworth Miners Welfare manager Luke Danville to a 1-0 defeat to promotion rivals Staveley Miners Welfare in his first game in permanent charge.
Hemsworth remain second, level on 38 points with leaders Penistone Church who did not play.
Liversedge and Yorkshire Amateur remain hot on the heels of the top three after 4-1 in their respective fixtures.
Super ‘Sedge eased past Garforth Town, with Ollie Fearon, Paul Walker, Alfie Raw (penalty) and Joe Walton scoring before Charlie Marshall pulled a goal back for the Miners.
The Ammers had to wait until late-on to break through at Goole AFC. The scores were one each going into the last 18 minutes as Goole’s Niah Payne had cancelled out Stephen Crawford’s opener. Neil Sibson’s men finished strongly and Matty Sykes, Adam Priestley and Ash Flynn scored.
Bridlington Town are also firmly in the hunt after Lewis Taylor’s goal five minutes from time earned them a 1-0 win at Maltby Main.
