LIVERSEDGE FC went into Christmas in high spirits after a timely 1-0 win over Garforth Town.
David Bordman struck the only goal midway through the first half, in what was their first game in three weeks after two consecutive postponements.
With the Clayborn pitch ready for action again, there were few chances early on as the two sides cancelled each other out in the first half hour.
New signing Emile Sinclair blasted a shot over the bar for Liversedge, and moments later they had a goal ruled out for a foul in the box.
Bordman then put another chance over the top, while the Sedge keeper had to be alert in injury time to tip Mark Simpson’s effort around the post.
Garforth goalkeeper Toby Wells made some good stops at the start of the second half, as the hosts began to ramp up the pressure in search of an opening goal.
Joe Colley sent a curling effort wide for Garforth, and a minute later Liversedge were in front as Bordman converted to break the deadlock.
The visitors tried to put the pressure on them with a point in sight, but the best chance fell to the home side as Wells made another save from close range in the closing stages.
The three points see Liversedge climb two places in the table, up to 15th and with an 11-point cushion to the relegation zone.
Their next fixture sees them travel to Nottinghamshire to face eighth-placed Worksop Town, who beat Sedge 4-1 earlier in the season, tomorrow (Saturday).
