Mossley eased into sixth place in the table with a convincing 4-1 victory over Radcliffe Borough at Seel Park on Saturday.

Mossley were able to recall Tom Dean and Mitch Bryant to the starting line up but were without the injured Tom Pratt.

Mossley had already seen a Sam Robinson effort saved before the Lilywhites took a 4th minute lead.

A short corner routine on the left saw Andy Keogh’s cross turned home by Tom Dean from close range.

Radcliffe were lively opponents throughout but lacked any real cutting edge meaning the Mossley rearguard were relatively untroubled.

The Lilywhites were still playing well within themselves when they double the lead on 15 minutes. Sam Robinson’s left wing cross found Mitch Bryant who finished coolly from eight yards.

Mossley were left feeling uncomfortable five minutes later though as Beven Burey out-jumped Caldon Henson to head home from a right wing cross to halve the arrears.

However, it then took only another four minutes for Mossley to restore the two goal cushion. Creator in chief Andy Keogh again providing the left wing cross for Mike Fish to outwit his marker and nip in to score a well take goal from close range.

The game swung from end to end but Mossley always looked the more likely to score the next goal.

Fish was replaced by Dave Short at the break with Bryant moving to a right wing berth and the two of them combined well only for Short to fire narrowly wide.

Sam Robinson was then denied by the keeper’s legs as he bore down on goal while at the other end Liam Flynn saved well from Nathan Valentine’s effort.

Mossley finally put the result way beyond doubt with four minutes remaining. Latching onto substitute Dougie Carroll’s through ball Andy Keogh beat the last defender easily before clipping a delicate finish over the despairing Boro keeper Cheetham and into the visitors net.

4-1 didn’t in any way flatter Mossley who were the more creative side throughout as the Lilywhites completed their first League ’double’ of the season.
