Albion Sports visit leaders more than a Tad annoyed

Albion Sports travel to leaders Tadcaster Albion in the Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier Division on Saturday still filled with frustration following their midweek game.

Albion looked on course to bank the victory that would have taken them up to third place ahead of their trip to the top club.

Instead they go to Taddy still in sixth spot following Wednesday’s abandonment at Staveley.

Kulwinder Sandhu’s men were 4-1 up when the game was brought to a premature end because of the adverse weather.

The manager said: “We went a goal down after five minutes but Brendan Ormsby and Alex Cusack scored before half-time.

“Danny Facey and Bradley Riley scored in the second half but then the rain came.

“We wanted to wait but the home side were in the referee’s ear trying to get the game abandoned. You can understand why but we were never going to lose from there, so it is annoying.”

Fourth-placed Thackley will need to be at their best to maintain their challenge as they journey to Basford United, who are seventh. The home side would go above the Dennyboys with a home win but they have played four games more so far.

Brighouse will be expected to win at home to struggling Parkgate. Paul Quinn’s fifth-placed side have six games in hand on leaders Tadcaster, who are 13 points ahead of them, but their recent form has been patchy.

Liversedge are in worse form and face a trip to lower mid-table rivals Maltby Main. The home side are 16th, immediately above Sedge, but have a seven-point cushion and a game in hand.

In Division One, Eccleshill United could go third with a win at home to Teversal if other results go their way. The Eagles’ visitors are just in the bottom half of the table but only ten points behind Eccleshill.

Silsden are brimming with confidence after three straight wins in the North West Counties League top tier but they are still ten places behind Saturday’s opponents AFC Liverpool.

The home side play their games at Prescot Cables’ ground, so the Cobbydalers do not have to make the trip all the way to the west coast.

Silsden are just seven points off the drop zone despite their treble victory run, so there is still work to be done.
