Farsley Celtic 1 Ossett Albion 0
Farsley Celtic ended a run of four games without victory as they earned a crucial three points in their 1-0 victory over Ossett Albion, writes Thomas Ritchie.
The first half was a disappointing affair with both sides struggling to create chances in the final third. However just after the half-hour mark Ossett Albion had an opportunity as Danny South played in Adam Jones, who could only flick the ball over the bar.
Rob Bordman then had another chance for Ossett on the stroke of halftime as he fired just over from the edge of the box.
Early on in the second half Farsley stung Ossett as Lewis Nightingale played through Jordan Deacey who slotted home into the bottom corner to edge The Celts in front.
Ossett’s best chance to pull level fell to substitute James Eyles who raced through on goal before he was denied by Farsley ‘keeper Tom Taylor who made a smart save.
Shortly after Farsley had a chance to double their advantage as Walker found Deacey in the box, however he could only shoot straight at Albion shot stopper Brett Souter.
The final chance of the game fell to Farsley Celtic on the break as Paul Walker rounded Souter only for Dominic Riordan to scamper back and make the block.
