1874 Northwich moved level on points with town rivals Witton Albion when they won 2-0 at home to Newcastle Town on Tuesday night.

Fenton Green tapped home from six yards after 13 minutes, capitalising on Harry Bower's run from halfway.

Nine minutes later Joe Woolley produced a cool finish to double the advantage.

Matt Woolley fired a penalty over the bar in the second half but with keeper Tony Aghayere producing several top saves 1874 had done enough to earn the three points ahead of hosting Colne at Townfield on Saturday.

Witton remain a place in front of 1874, in eighth and with a game in hand in Northern Premier League West, after their 1-1 draw at table toppers Macclesfield on Tuesday.

Ntumba Massanka put The Silkmen ahead in the 33rd minute with a header from a corner but Joe Duckworth's 76th-minute penalty strike earned Greens a share of the spoils.

Witton keeper Ollie Martin was in fine form, and needed to be, to help the visitors become the first side to take points off Macc at home since they lost to 1874 on October 22.

Seven yellow cards were dished out by the referee and Macc's James Hardy was sent off in the 82nd minute.

Also on Tuesday, Northwich Victoria held on to a 2-1 win at Vauxhall Motors despite ending the game with nine men.

Matty Clarke and Joe Cooney were dismissed in the final 18 minutes but they defended superbly to ensure that two magical and identical free-kicks from Brandon Barski earned them all three points against the league leaders.

Bobby McDonnell's 47th-minute strike from a tight angle had given Vauxhalls hope, while keeper Ryan Hamer came to the rescue at full stretch to tip a goal-bound effort on to the corner of the crossbar and post.
