LIVERSEDGE fell to a third consecutive one-goal defeat as Staveley Miners Welfare edged their clash 1-0 late on at Clayborn.
Joe Cheeseman scored the decisive goal in the 82nd minute, heading in from a Matthew Davies corner to continue the promotion-chasing side’s good run.
Sedge remain in 14th place in the table, with an 11-point cushion to the relegation zone.
The result came following narrow defeats the previous week to both Handsworth Parramore on the road and then Goole at home.
They face a Goole side battling for their lives in the division for the second time in a fortnight tomorrow (Saturday, kick-off 3pm), this time travelling to East Yorkshire for the reverse clash.
Meanwhile, they have been handed a home quarter-final in the NCEL League Cup against Hallam FC.
No date has yet been arranged for the tie, which comes after their impressive win over Penistone Church in the previous round.
