Harrogate Town 2-2 Maidstone United

Harrogate fought back to earn a draw at home to a Maidstone side who dropped to the bottom of the National League table with the result.

Justin Amaluzor scored twice for the visitors to cancel out Mark Beck's opener but Jack Muldoon's penalty ensured the points were shared.

Harrogate were in front with 21 minutes gone when Joe Leesley's cross was headed back across goal and Beck applied the finish from close range for his 10th goal of the season.

Amaluzor brought the visitors level on the stroke of half-time when he bent his shot into the top left corner from outside the penalty area.

Seven minutes into the second half, Amaluzor got his second to put Maidstone ahead when his shot found the far corner.

Muldoon drew Harrogate level just after the hour as he converted from the penalty spot after being brought down before Leesley's shot from 30 yards came back off the bar.

But sixth-placed Harrogate had to settle for a draw, while Maidstone must win all of their six remaining games to have even a slim chance of survival.
