IT ENDED all-square at Gran­tham as the sides shared four goals.

Af­ter an even open­ing Gran­tham took the lead on five min­utes when Cur­tis Bur­rows drove home.

Gran­tham con­tin­ued to press and dou­bled their lead on 15 min­utes when Jor­dan Hem­pen­stall con­verted a Lee Shaw cross.

Both Danny El­lis and Paul Walker saw shots go over for Farsley be­fore they got back into the game on 26 min­utes when Danny El­lis turned in a cross from the right.

Farsley lev­elled the scores on 34 min­utes when af­ter a spell of sus­tained pres­sure Adam Clay­ton net­ted fol­low­ing a goalline scram­ble.

The half ended with Farsley keeper McKib­bin sav­ing from Lee Shaw and for Gran­tham Kieran Pre­ston from Paul Walker.

Farsley had a chance on 56 min­utes but Nathan Turner shot over and Isaac Bald­win headed wide be­fore Lee Shaw had a chance for Gran­tham but his shot went wide.

Pre­ston kept the scores level with a fine save from El­lis. Farsley were mov­ing the ball well but Gran­tham’s de­fence held firm. Both sides were look­ing for a win­ning goal and play swung from end to end.

Pre­ston twice made good saves from Danny El­lis and Ben Atkin­son fired over when well placed. Gran­tham ended the game strongly but couldn’t find a win­ner. STAR MAN: Kieran Pre­ston (Gran­tham) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
