Albion Sports are now in real danger of letting their Northern Counties East League Premier Division play-off place slip away at the death.

They are still the favourites to claim fifth place, and with it the fourth and final play-off spot, but now they really could do with winning their last league game of the season at lowly Pickering Town tomorrow.

If they do, their Bradford rivals Thackley would no longer be able to catch them, and Penistone Church would only be able to pip them on goal difference by winning all of their final four games.

Albion would have wrapped up their play-off spot by beating neighbours Campion on Wednesday night, but the visitors are second in the table for good reason.

They fell behind early on at Horsfall to a goal from Ash Flynn, but roared back to claim an excellent 4-1 away win.

Patrick Sykes was the star of the show for Campion, scoring a hat-trick, while a goal from Nicky Boshell ensured a handsome victory on the road for the Red and Blacks.

A miserable night for Albion was compounded by Tom Ponter and Eisa Faulding both sent to the sin-bin during the second half.

Eccleshill United secured safety in the division last week, but they did not get the chance to build on that momentum on Wednesday night, with their home game called off against Frickley Athletic.

They play on a grass surface, which is why their game was called off, and Albion’s went ahead on the artificial pitch at Horsfall.

Mid-table Silsden were in action the night before, claiming an exciting 4-2 home win over Bottesford Town.

It was a crazy start to the Premier Division clash, with the hosts 3-2 up midway through the first half.

Kayle Price added a late fourth goal for the Cobbydalers, to seal both the victory and his second hat-trick for the club in four days.
