Own goal opener is false dawn for Silsden
Silsden 1 Maine Road 3
The Cobbydalers lost for a third consecutive time in the North West Counties League Premier Division when leaders Maine Road took all the points from Saturday’s clash.
Silsden actually took the lead, a deep free-kick being turned into his own net by the visitors’ Neil Chappell, but they were in front for just over a minute.
Jon Mason out-jumped the home defence to thump in a good header.
The visitors were the better side after the break and they edged in front just after the hour-mark with a stunning strike. Richard Williams had his back to goal when he collected the ball but he had time to control it and turn before hitting a screamer into the top corner.
The Manchester outfit wrapped up their win in injury-time when Rory Breslin netted a shot after a good run.
