Campion were pushed all the way at home to struggling Goole last night in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, but eventually came through with a 4-2 win to move four points clear at the summit.

The Red and Blacks need to keep winning, with only the title winners going up automatically and second-placed Emley having four games in hand on the leaders.

They suffered the worst possible start last night, having Stevie Crawford stretchered off with a nasty-looking injury after an early collision with Goole keeper Luke Chadwick.

And while Michael O’Brien put the hosts in front, they were soon pegged back by a goal from Jacob Bradley, meaning the sides reached the break on level terms.

The prolific Marcus Day put Campion 2-1 up, before Joseph Colley gave them a two-goal cushion after 54 minutes.

Matthew Langley’s late goal for Goole set home nerves jangling, but the Red and Blacks wrapped up victory in second-half injury-time through Aidan Kirby.

To top off a good night, hospital scans have revealed that Crawford suffered no broken bones or fractures as a result of his collision with Chadwick.

Divisional rivals Silsden were due to be in midweek NCEL League Cup action, but saw their game at Tadcaster Albion on Tuesday night called off thanks to a waterlogged pitch.

Last year’s finalists Liversedge bowed out of the West Riding County Cup at the second-round stage in midweek, losing 1-0 at home to Pontefract Collieries.

In the Northern Premier League East Division, Brighouse Town drew 1-1 at Ossett United on Tuesday, the point apiece easing both sides’ relegation fears somewhat.

Ossett took the lead midway through the first half courtesy of Desmond Amponsah, only for Brighouse to equalise at the death through Brandon Webster.

Guiseley have moved into the NPL Premier Division play-off places after a stunning 4-0 midweek home win over promotion rivals Matlock Town.

Tom Pratt scored to give Guiseley the lead on 30 minutes, before the prolific Gabriel Johnson doubled their advantage just before the hour mark.

Late goals from Kallan Murphy and Prince Ekpolo added some gloss to the scoreline for the Lions.

Finally, Farsley Celtic drew 0-0 at home to high-flying Spennymoor Town in National League North, moving up to 14th in the table as a result.
