Mossley continued their impressive home form as they bettered Evo-stik League new boys Atherton Collieries 2-0 at Seel Park on Saturday.

The Lilywhites got off to a flying start as a clever clipped through ball by Liam Ellis saw Adam Latham race in from the right wing to outpace the Colls defence and slot a neat finish past Adam Reid.

The visitors lively forwards, including ex Mossley man Darrhyl Mason were getting very little change from a confident Mossley back four and it was the Lilywhites who had the next chance when a great mazy run from midfield by Mason Duffy saw the wide man shoot off target.

The game switched from end to end with few noteworthy chances with the main action coming in a brief time before the interval. Colls had their clearest chance when Mason headed over from a great position and within a couple of minutes Mossley had doubled their lead.

Duffy’s break sown the left saw his low cross turned home by Jack Tuohy to put Mossley firmly in the driving seat.

The second half saw Mossley comfortably in control as they defended well and gave Colls few opportunities to get a clean strike at goal. Constantly a threat with some swift breaks Mossley were wasteful in front of goal, with well worked moves often breaking down with the final ball.

Visitors keeper Reid made an excellent double save to deny Duffy and Elliot Harrison as Mossley enjoyed a spell of heavy pressure but a third goal wouldn’t come as Reid again excelled to keep out Harrison’s close range header to keep the score-line respectable.
