SILSDEN made it seven matches without a defeat by recording a 1-0 win at Handsworth in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

The Cobbydalers were the quickest out of the blocks almost taking the lead through a Khurram Shazad strike after good play by Matthias Britton.

Bad luck struck for the visitors when Myles Foley was forced off early through injury. Connor Thompson took his place.

Shazad and Britton had an action-packed opening period, each going close before the deadlock was broken.

Conor Wademan was the player to do so, netting a great strike from 18 yards out to put the away side in front.

Despite dominating the first half, Silsden were a lot quieter after the break and would have conceded late on if it was not Ben Higginson making a fine save.

Danny Forest's men did manage to hold on though to a result which moves them up to tenth.
