Referee: Mr I. Johnson



With several players missing through injury and unavailability the Mossley side showed a number of changes from the previous outing and the performance generally mirrored that.

The biggest thorn in Mossley's side on the day was Liversedge's big centre forward Joe Walton, normally a centre half, the 'sedge striker caused the Lilywhites reshuffled defence all kinds of problems.

After an even opening Mossley took the lead on 19 minutes. Good work by Andy keogh and Tom Murray saw the latter cross to the far post where Tom Pratt stretched to loop a header beyond the grasp of former Mossley keeper Christian Thewlis.

The equaliser cam seven minutes later when a mazy run by Walton ended with him being clipped by Kyle Harrison and Vaughan Redford slotted home the resultant penalty.

Six minutes later Harrison and Walton again tangled in the box and the referee awarded Liversedge a second spot kick.. This time however, Redford rolled his spot kick wide of the left hand post.

The home side took the lead on the stroke of half time when a cross from deep on the left saw the surprisingly unmarked Walton loop a header past the stranded Liam Flynn.

Mossley equalised in the 54th minute when Andy Keogh nicked the ball off a Liversedge defender and raced clear to score with a delicate chipped shot.

A defensive error gifted Liversedge the lead again on 65 minutes as Steve Wailes fired home from the edge of the box.

Mossley equalised again on 70 minutes with a neat finish by Omar McKenzie before Dougie Carroll failed with a couple of great chances to put Mossley ahead again.

Liversedge then went ahead yet again on 75 minutes when substitute Jaz Donaldson bundled home from close range from a low left wing cross.

Mossley were denied an equaliser when the Lilywhites best move of the match saw Steve Yarwood fire home only for the effort to be harshly ruled out for a highly debatable off-side earlier in the move.
