Very much a night to forget as Mossley crashed to a 4-0 defeat at mid table Kidsgrove Athletic on Wednesday night after amazingly conceding three goals in the space of three second half minutes.

The side showed a couple changes to Saturday’s team with Dieter Downey and Raul Correia both starting and Mossley set about the game in determined mood with Adam Jones early header testing home keeper Harrison.
Mossley looked the more threatening as Mike Fish saw his 11th minute effort come back off a post.

Downey was denied by a last ditch tackle and Fish had an effort saved as the interval approached but both sides had found chances at a premium and the home side offered very little threat in a first half mostly controlled by the visitors.

Fish fired a free kick narrowly over the bar before substitute Ben Halfacre saw his effort saved by Harrison. Then chaos reigned!!

On 68 minutes Chris Baker headed home from a corner to give the home side the lead against the run of play. On 69 minutes Will Saxon burst through an ineffective off-side trap to double Kidsgrove’s advantage. Then just one minute later Josh Ollerenshaw’s clearance saw Rhys Thompson fire back past time first time from fully 50 yards.

Raul Correia had an opportunity to pull a goal back but his effort came back off the post and away to safety before salt was rubbed in Mossley wounds on 79 minutes as Rumenio Valido raced through to add a fourth goal to complete an emphatic victory for the home side and they almost added a fifth when Malbon’s effort struck the

Mossley post to leave the Lilywhites well beaten on a night they will quickly want to put behind them
