AS weekends go, the last one could certainly have been worse for Yorkshire sides. Pride of place goes to Sheffield United, who secured a fine win at a difficult venue in Gillingham, while Bradford City came back with a very decent League One point just up the Old Kent Road at Millwall.
Doncaster Rovers paid the price for some sloppy late defending in a 2-1 reverse at Crewe, with the hosts afforded a flattering League Two win. In the National League, Guiseley picked up their first point of the campaign, but are still seeking their first win bonus after eight league matches following a 0-0 draw with Braintree at Nethermoor. There was a handsome win for York City, with Richard Brodie continuing his goalscoring form in a 4-0 home drubbing of Solihull Moors, while North Ferriby went down 2-0 at Ronnie Moore’s Eastleigh - their fourth successive league reverse on the road in 2016-17.
