Mossley returned to winning ways with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Kendal Town at Seel Park on Saturday.

The side showed one change from that beaten in the last seconds at Trafford as Andy Keogh returned to the team with Ben Halfacre dropping to the bench.

The Lilywhites started on the front foot and Keogh had an early chance but volleyed straight at the keeper.

Kendal played some good football as they tried to find a way through a high and pressing Mossley defence but they managed to breach the backline only once when a loose back pass saw Yawson clean through but he screwed his shot well wide.

Mossley had the ball in the net on 20 minutes through Max Leonard but the effort was ruled out for a narrow off-side.

Mossley didn’t have to wait long for the breakthrough goal though. Liam Ellis was upended on the right wing. Ben Richardson’s deep free kick was knocked back across goal by Leonard and up popped Logan Jeffs to side-foot into the roof of the net from six yards for his first ever Mossley goal.

Mossley doubled their lead five minutes after the break when substitute Adam Latham raced clear on the left, he laid the ball back to Mason Duffy who’s whipped cross was turned home on the volley by a gleeful Max Leonard for his seventh goal of the season.

Mossley went into cruise control after this, managing the game perfectly and keeping the still dangerous Kendal side at bay.

There was a frantic few minutes in the middle of the half when Leonard headed over from a great position before Duffy headed against the Kendal bar and Richardson couldn’t keep his header down from the rebound.

Play sprung to the other end and Jonny Diba Musangu made a great save to deny Harries and then Mossley defenders threw their bodies in front of two follow up rebound shots.

Mossley were then able to confidently soak up Kendal pressure and the Lilywhites remained a threat on the counter attack but without further reward.
