Harrogate Town 3-1 Braintree Town

Harrogate fought back to maintain their National League title push with a home victory over Braintree.

The Iron opened the scoring when Justin Amaluzor dribbled into the box before picking out the top corner.

But Harrogate were level just before the break when Jack Muldoon collected Josh Falkingham's through ball and slotted past George Legg.

Town turned the game on its head when George Thomson fired a low shot into the back of the net.

And the three points were secured when Michael Woods scored at the death after a one-two with Mark Beck.
