HALTWHISTLE Conservatives moved back up to second spot with victory over free scoring Barrasford.
Last year's championship winning side managed to limit their rivals to just the one goal, claiming a 4-1 victory which takes them to within a point of leaders Wylam, whose game with Allendale was postponed.
Elsewhere in Division One, Ryton and Crawcrook Albion cemented fourth spot with a narrow 3-2 triumph over The Falcon Prudhoe.
Bardon Mill will go into their final game with fellow promoted side Prudhoe Social Club full of confidence as they returned from Hexham Hearts with a comfortable 6-1 victory.
Swinburne Arms Stamfordham gave it a real go as they looked for their first win of the season - but fell short as they ended up on the wrong end of a thrilling 7-5 encoutner with Dr Syntax Prudhoe.
