MATCH REPORTS FROM MARK BIRTLES

Stoke City came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Bet 365 Stadium.

Goals from Million Manhoef and Andre Vidigal rescued a point for The Potters, which leaves them four points clear of the drop zone, with five games to play – which start on Wednesday night with a trip to Swansea.

Port Vale and Wigan Athletic earned a point each in a 0-0 draw at the DW Stadium. It’s a point which lifts The Vale out of the league one drop zone on goal difference, with a trip to fourth place Peterborough to come tomorrow evening.

Crewe Alexandra and Accrington Stanley played out a 0-0 draw at The Wham Stadium. The Alex – missing ten first team players, are five points clear of eighth place Wimbledon, and head to Morecambe tomorrow night.

A header just before half time was enough to see Newcastle Town beaten 1-0 away at Witton Albion.

Champions Leek Town were finally beaten 2-1 at Avro, but the game was overshadowed by a sickening clash between Leek’s Julius Ndene and Avro’s Kyle Hawley which saw both players leave the ground in ambulances. Both players have since been released from hospital, but Ndene is unlikely to play again this season.

Hanley Town won a seven-goal thriller away at Clitheroe. Joel Stair, Sam Turner and Adam Watson had Hanley three up, and Watson’s second put them 4-1 into the lead. Despite a Clitheroe fightback, Hanley held on, and the win means they will be playing step 4 football again next season.

Nantwich Town’s rise up the table continued as they beat Stalybridge Celtic by four goals to two. Courtney Meppen-Walters, Kai Evans and a Byron Harrison double mean Nantwich still have their sights firmly set on fifth place going into their last four games.

A single goal from Kaiman Anderson was enough to earn all three points for Stafford Rangers as they beat Whitby Town 1-0 at Marston Road.

And Kidsgrove Athletics’ home game against Widnes was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

In Women’s football – Stoke City’s game against Fylde was called off thanks to a waterlogged pitch,

And goals from Elissa Dockerty and Sian McHugh saw Port Vale beat Leek Town Ladies reserves by two goals to nil.
