ECCLESHILL United came back from the brink to earn a fine 2-2 home draw against Staveley Miners Welfare in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division last night.

They were 2-0 down with seven minutes left before Jake Thompson netted to give them some hope. Skipper Sam Bradley then turned in a 95th minute equaliser to spark wild celebrations for the hosts.

There was also an appearance from the substitutes' bench for Tom Rose, who returned to the club this week after a brief spell back at his former club Yorkshire Amateur.

Speaking before the game, he said: "I am delighted to be back with the club and to be honest, I should never have left.

"I’d love to go on another unbeaten run and see us climb the table, finish as high as possible. I’d personally like to get on the scoresheet more."

United's next game is a trip to fellow mid-table outfit Bottesford Town on Saturday, while Liversedge visit the Eagles' midweek opponents Staveley. Thackley are also on their travels, facing a tough clash at second-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

Albion Sports recorded a stunning 5-4 win at Yorkshire Amateur on Tuesday, with two late goals from Ombeni Ruhanduka settling the issue. They will hope to build on that with a home win over Barton Town this weekend.

Campion are also at home and they will expect all three points against East Yorkshire Carnegie, who have lost three of their four away games so far in Division One.

Farsley Celtic have won three consecutive Evo-Stik Premier Division games to ascend into ninth. With games in hand over the teams above, they will hope to make further progress up the table with victory at mid-table Nantwich Town.

Brighouse Town are flying in the Evo-Stik East, and their 1-0 win over Stocksbridge Park Steels on Monday took them into third. They visit Stamford on Saturday hoping to continue their promotion push.

In the Hallmark Security League Premier Division, Silsden host promotion rivals Runcorn Town, while in the second round of the First Division Cup, free-scoring Steeton host Bacup Borough.
