North Ferriby gained a much-needed win in their fight against relegation back to National League North with a 2-1 success over Sutton United.

Sam Topliss found the opening goal after 11 minutes and Ferriby held the lead until the break.

It took just one minute of the second half for the Greens to double their account as Reece Thompson cut inside and slotted home.

Sutton set up a grandstand finish through Maxin Biamou with 75 minutes on the clock but Ferriby held out.

Gary Mills remains without a win since returning to struggling York City as his side fell to a 2-0 loss at home to Dagenham and Redbridge.

Oliver Hawkins headed the visitors in front on the half hour before Luke Gutteridge doubled the advantage on the stroke of half time.

Adriano Moke was then sent off on his York debut to compound the Minstermen’s misery.

A sluggish start to the second meant Guiseley also slipped to a two-goal defeat at Dover.

Rickie Miller put the hosts in front on 46 minutes before Moses Emmanuel found the net three minutes later.

In National League North, FC Halifax Town lost a six-goal thriller at Curzon Ashton despite their hosts being reduced to eight men.

Harrogate Town’s poor run continued as they let a lead slip to fall down 2-1 at Brackley but Bradford Park Avenue had a reversal of those fortunes to beat Stockport County 2-1 away.
