A brace from Martin Pembleton was the difference as Ossett Town took all three points from their trip to Farsley Celtic.

Ossett survived a long period of pressure from Farsley throughout the second half and secured the win with seconds left to play as Pembleton scored his second of the afternoon.
The Celtic keeper had come up for a corner, Town cleared the ball and went up the other end for Pembleton to put the ball into the empty net.
