Main Line’s previously unbeaten run might have hit the buffers at third-placed ‘Chappy’ but the third-bottom outfit still has a staggering seven games in hand on leaders Leeds Met FC and have only - two wins and a draw would do it - seven points to make up on Sunday’s victors, Chapeltown.

Leeds Met retained their advantage at the top with a 2-0 win over second-placed visitors HT Sports First, who still have three games in hand on the leaders. Dan Thompson gave Met a first-half lead with a goal on the half-hour while Dominic Tiffany sealed the deal with a second 20 minutes from time.
