A LATE header from Richard Bennett saw Ossett Albion beaten 3-2 at Mossley despite a performance probably worthy of at least a draw.
In an eventful first half – which not only had three goals – but also saw saw referee Tom Neild stretchered off due to injury, resulting in a volunteer from the crowd taking over as assistant referee.
Brian Matthews put Mossley ahead on 22 minutes but a superb goal from Adam Muller and a well struck penalty from David Brown, following a push on Caldon Henson, saw Albion go into the interval with a 2-1 lead.
Mossley did have the better of the second half and Matthews got his second with another well struck penalty.
Both sides created a number of chances but Bennet’s late header sealed the points for the hosts.
Tomorrow (Sat) Albion are at home to Prescot Cables with a 3pm kick off.
• Ossett Town saw their match with Salford postponed, but they are back in league action tomorrow (Sat) when they travel to top-placed Warrington Town.
