Reds in hat for Cup draw

OSSETT TOWN have booked their place in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup by beating Goole 2-1 at home.

In a hard-fought encounter it was Grant Black’s men who edged it thanks to a Devonte Morton double, but it was the visitors who struck first in the 17th minute through David Taylor.

The one-goal advantage lasted just 10 minutes before Morton found space and drew the sides level with a neat finish.

The in-form striker then fired the Reds in front five minutes before the interval, and that goal proved enough to separate the sides at the final whistle.

Goole pressed for an equaliser throughout the second period but a bid to keep their FA Cup dream alive came to nothing.

Grant Black’s men march on, but before the next round of the cup the Reds have to turn their attention to the challenge posed by Trafford on Saturday (3pm) in Evo-Stik First Division North, ahead of the eagerly anticipated first derby of the season against Albion on Bank Holiday Monday (Aug 29, 3pm).
