Farsley Celtic were put to the sword by an excellent Mickleover Sports side who were extremely comfortable in their 3-0 Evo-Stik League Premier Division win,

Mickleover caught Farsley off guard in the opening moments and took an early lead as Pablo Mills headed home from John McGrath’s corner.

McGrath then came close to scoring himself however his curling effort was well held by Graeme McKibbin.

Mickleover continued their assault on the Farsley goal with Andy Dales making a great run before firing wide. Farsley then came inches away from equalising as McGrath came to Mickleover’s rescue, clearing James Walshaw’s header off the line.

Mickleover doubled their lead with 15 minutes remaining as Farsley’s defence allowed Euan Garnett to ghost in behind and he rounded McKibbin before slotting home.

The three points were wrapped up for the visitors as Tevahn Tyrell found Andy Dales who slotted home, with Farsley’s defence falling asleep once again.

Tadcaster Albion are now four games without a win as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Skelmersdale United. Alaster Redmayne gave Skelmersdale the lead before Josh Greening deservedly levelled for Tadcaster, only for Andrew Owens to tap home to give the visitors the three points.

Ossett Albion were defeated 2-0 by Droylsden, as second-half strikes from Liam Caddick and Shaun Holden earned Droylsden the victory.
