Boston United slipped two places to fifth in the National League North table - but it was not all doom and gloom as the top two both dropped points.

The Pilgrims were left without a game after their scheduled match at Alfreton Town was postponed this morning.

Their inactivity allowed Chester and AFC Fyle to leapfrog them in the play-off spots as they beat Telford 3-0 and Chorley 4-0 respectively.

United now trail the Seals and Coasters by three points but have played four games fewer than Chester and two fewer than Fylde.

Meanwhile, leaders Gloucester City drew 1-1 at Leamington and second-place Kidderminster Harriers were held at home by Hereford by the same scoreline.

Boston now trail Gloucester by 10 points but with five games in hand, and the Harriers by three points, but with two games in hand.

National league North standings: 1 Gloucester City P 16 Pts 31, 2 Kidderminster P13 Pts 24, 2 Chester P15 Pts 23, 4 AFC Fylde P13 Pts 24, 5 Boston United P 11 Pts 21, 6 York City P11 Pts 21, 7 Brackley P13 Pts 21, 8 Spennymoor P13 Pts 20.
