A RAPID brace from Joe Gaughan just after the hour mark saw Silsden rescue their run in this season’s FA Vase as they came from a goal down to knock Bedlington Terriers out with a 3-1 win.

The Northern League Division Two side had taken a second minute lead through Steve Gibson and they held that slender advantage for over an hour in a pulsating cup tie.

Gaughan levelled the match with a deserved equaliser when he converted a Mark Trueman cross with a header.

The Cobbydalers continued their spell of dominance and Gaughan pounced to net when a ball in from Luke Rhodes was not cleared by the visitors’ defence.

Danny Forrest’s men completed their win when Aidan Kirby netted on the rebound after a free kick from distance had only been blocked.

To add to the Terriers’ woes, they ended the game with ten men after Dylan Williamson was shown a red card following a foul on Reece Lyndon.

Silsden’s neighbours Steeton claimed another point in the Hallmark Security League Division One North thanks to an Alistair Morgan stoppage time equaliser at home against second placed Carlisle City.

The Chevrons had made a good start and they took an eighth minute lead when Aaron Davies fired in a shot from distance.

Carlisle hit back in the second half and were level in the 56th minute, Michael Slack heading past home keeper Joe Mash, and they snatched the lead when Tyran Taylor headed in following a corner.

The last gasp drama came in the third minute of time added on from another flag kick. It was taken short and drilled through the six yard box, Morgan bundling it home to bring the house down at Cougar Park.
