Harrogate will face Notts County in the National League play-off final for the chance to join Bolton in League Two next season.

The North Yorkshire club, who finished second in the table, beat Boreham Wood 1-0 at the CNG Stadium with Whites boss Ian Evatt pitchside doing punditry for BT Sport.

As a result they are one match away from playing in the Football League for the first time in their history, Jack Muldoon notching the only goal of Saturday’s contest in the 64th minute.

Muldoon beat goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore with a close-range header after Will Smith had nodded a corner towards goal.

Ashdown had made a series of saves to thwart Harrogate in the first half, while Matt Rhead went close for the visitors with headers both early on and shortly before the goal, seeing the second effort cleared off the line.

Simon Weaver’s men will face the Magpies at Wembley on August 2 after they were 2-0 winners at home to Barnet.

“It would be fantastic to welcome the fans back whenever that may be, probably in October, to be playing the likes of Bolton,” Weaver said.

“What a prospect. We’ve just got to see if through with one last push.”

Relegated from League Two last season, Neil Ardley’s Magpies took the lead in the 37th minute when Jim O’Brien delivered a cross from the left and Kristian Dennis headed past Scott Loach.

After Sam Slocombe did well to deny Barnet’s Ephron Mason-Clark early in the second half, Callum Roberts then doubled the hosts’ advantage with a fine 59th-minute effort as he danced away from two players in the box before slotting in.
