Matt Dempsey goal earns Farsley narrow win
Ossett Albion 0, Farsley 1
A narrow victory against neighbours Ossett Albion meant it was a very good bank holiday weekend for Farsley.
Two Evo-Stik League wins in three days lifted Neil Parsley’s men up to fourth place in Division One North.
After banging four goals past title favourites Darlington 1883 on Saturday, just one strike proved enough today.
Minutes after the hour mark, Matt Dempsey – making his first appearance since a close-season operation – netted the winner from a corner.
Skipper Rob O’Brien had the ball in the net during a goalless first half but celebrations were curtailed by an offside flag.
Striker Aiden Savory had a header cleared off the line and later hit a post, while substitute Danny Hull headed just over late on.
Farsley did not have things all their own way though, with Dale Kelly and Ryan Harrison both going very close for the home side.
The latter chance could easily have seen them share the spoils.
