LIVERSEDGE’S poor form in the Northern Counties East League Premier continued on Tuesday night with a 3-1 home defeat to Thackley.
It was second vs third in the top flight and Jonathan Rimmington’s Liversedge looked as though they might pull three points back on their league rivals when Joe Walton struck in the 25th minute.
But the slender advantage lasted just 60 seconds before Josh Snowden levelled matters for the visitors.
The two sides couldn’t be separated before half-time but immediately after the restart Sedge suffered a huge setback when Kristian Hargreaves found the back of the net for Thackley.
The hosts pushed for an equaliser for the remainder of the second half but the visitors’ defence stood firm.
Liversedge were then hit with a sucker-punch goal from Ryan Ferrell 10 minutes from time who wrapped the game up for the Thackley.
The win puts Thackley top of the Premier Division while Liversedge remain third, but the Clayborn side could fall several places, having played more games than their rivals.
The defeat to Thackley followed last Saturday’s narrow 2-1 away loss to Clipstone.
The hosts went 2-0 up in the first half through George Milner and Sam Forster before Rhys Davies pulled one back for Sedge from the penalty spot on the hour mark, but the Clayborn side failed to find the elusive equaliser.
Rimmington will hope for better from his side when they host Albion Sports tomorrow (Sat, 3pm).
