A remarkable game at The Throstle Nest on Saturday saw Mossley come from behind in stoppage time to snatch the points with a 95th minute winner to beat a very strong and largely impressive Farsley side against all the odds.

Farsley, all confidence, quick feet and pass and move were a handful from the start and made most of the first half running, creating a host of chances and half chances as Mossley struggled to gain a foothold. Aiden Savory, Adam Priestley and the very dangerous Jason St.Juste were all denied by Ash Frith in the early stages before the home side had Ross Daly's goal disallowed for off-side.

However, it was Mossley who drew first blood in the 31st minute. Mitchell Bryant's flick found Dean Warburton who jinked his way past three defenders before rifling into the bottom corner from 20 yards somewhat against the run of play.

Farsley contiuned to come on strong and Priestley's long range effort was defelected wide while St.Juste, Savory, Priestley and ex Mossley man Lewis Nightingale were all halted by some great Mossley defending before Farsley finally equalised two minutes before the break. Farsley won a free kick and Ryan Serrant's effort was blocked but centre back James Riley bundled the ball home much to the relief of the home side.

The second half was a much more even affair as Mossley started to make more inroads into the home defence but Farsley come closest when Savory's effort cannoned back off the Mossley bar. Then on 67 minutes Nightingale broke clear on the right and saw his shot hit the bar but the lively St.Juste was on hand to fire home the rebound to give Farsley the lead.

Mossley refused to roll over though and found an equialiser of their own on 73 minutes. Ryan Barrow's deep free kick was headed on by Tom Dean and Andy Keogh spun to fire home his first goal of the season from six yards.

Despite Mossley's appeals for a foul in the build up, Farsley looked to have wrapped the game up in the 88th minute when Savory played in substitute Marcus Edwards whose 20 yard shot found the bottom corner.

However, Mossley would not be denied. Five minutes added time was announced just before John Bennett fired a deep free kick that found Dean Warburton who fired into the Farsley box. The ball deflected to Mitchell Bryant who joyously rammed home the equaliser - 3-3.

That really should have been that but, remarkably, it wasn't. With the referee glancing at his watch Mossley won a left wing corner. Oliver Devenney fired the set piece into the heart of the Farsley box and in flew Josh Granite to power home an unstoppable header followed by some joyous scenes from the Mossley bench.

The Lilywhites might even have managed a fifth goal after that but substitute Oliver Devenney was a fraction away from getting on the end of Pratt's low ball across the face of goal, the final whistle sounding before Farsley had chance to mount another attack.

Breathless stuff and a fantastic away win against a very good Farsley team.
