Mossley home in on survival


MOSSLEY have suddenly rediscovered the art of winning at home, which could be the key to their survival bid.

Tuesday's win against Leek Town, their first at Seel Park for over five months, keeps alive their slender hopes of staving off relegation from the UniBond League premier division.

And if the Lilywhites eight points adrift of safety can beat Gateshead tomorrow, also at Seel Park, that belief will increase.

Gateshead have lost four of their last five games so they won't be arriving from the North East in a rich vein of form.

Mossley manager Jason Beckford's small squad is down to its bare bones. He had only 12 fully fit players on Tuesday when defender Gary Furnival limped off with a hamstring stain.

Stephen Sheil and James Turley are also injured, but Beckford is set to re-sign Paul Challinor to provide emergency cover at the back.
