ALBION Sports continued their mini-revival under new manager Riz Mohammed by beating holders Ossett United 1-0 in the West Riding County Cup last night.

Visitors Ossett would have gone into the game as favourites, as they play in a higher tier than Albion, but the Bradford side showed no fear, and won the game thanks to an early Robbie Fox goal.

Jaydan Sandhu tested the Ossett keeper in the opening seconds, before Kieran Suddards put the ball just wide for the hosts, who made a lightning start.

Fox then saw an effort cleared off the line, but he made no mistake with 20 minutes gone, making the most of a major miscommunication in the Ossett defence to slot the ball into an empty net.

Jamal Stewart went close with a header for Albion, before Suddards hit the post following a sensational Cruyff turn.

Former Bradford (Park Avenue) and Eccleshill United wide man Tabish Hussain caused problems for Albion in the first half, but he was arguably the only Ossett player troubling the home defence.

Stewart and Fox both went close to doubling Albion’s advantage at the start of the second half, but then home keeper George Clarke had to be at his best to thwart Ossett in a one-on-one situation.

It was a quiet end to the game, and Ossett wasted their last chance when they blazed a free-kick over the bar in injury-time.

That fine win puts Albion into the quarter-final, where they will host the winner of the upcoming tie between Tadcaster Albion and Guiseley.

Meanwhile, Liversedge bowed out of the FA Trophy on Tuesday night, losing 3-1 at home to Lancaster City in the second round.

Paul Walker grabbed a late consolation for the hosts.
