Mossley lost a second successive home game without scoring when Leicestershire strugglers Shepshed Dynamo took all three points at Seel Park on Saturday!

The visitors came undoubtedly hoping to gain a point and went away with all three, scoring with virtually their only effort on goal in the entire 90 minutes.
Having said that, Mossley fared little better and created woefully few chances on a day undoubtedly best soon forgotten. Rhodri Giggs came closest twice in the first half firstly when he just failed to reach Barrie Hart’s fierce cross/shot and then hitting the post with a header just before the interval.

Six minutes into the second half Shepshed scored what proved to be the winner. Lee Bracey could only parry Steve Gomm’s shot and Carl Timms reacted quickest to the rebound to score a simple goal.

Too many passes went astray as positional changes were made and Mossley were unable to compromise Shepshed’s packed defence. That was until Mossley won a corner on the right. It was Paul Challinor who was set experience injustice as he headed Barrie Hart’s centre goalwards only to see defender Tom Guiney choose to flip the ball over the bar with an outstretched hand as it was about to cross the line. Guiney was instantly red carded. The referee prolonged the moment by delaying the spot kick and keeper Gary Hateley dived superbly to his left to turn away Chris Downey’s well struck penalty.

Despite six added minutes, due in the main to some endless time-wasting by the otherwise rock solid Shepshed keeper, Mossley were unable to find an equaliser.
