Farsley delighted after Ben’s blunder
FARSLEY CELTIC 1 MICKLEOVER SPORTS 0
THE CELTS secured a hard earned three points against Mickleover Sports courtesy of a first-half own goal from Ben Turner just after the half-hour mark.
Farsley started the brighter of the two sides creating a couple of good opportunities in the opening ten minutes, with Nathan Cartman first curling wide from a Paul Walker lay-back and then driving over the bar after a Jimmy Spencer knock-down.
Mickleover though started to get a foothold in the game around the halfway mark of the first-half and a communication error by the Celts defence let Roberts in for Sports, but his chip drifted wide.
Just after the half-hour mark, Farsley took the lead, when a ball in from Will Hayhurst was put into his own net by defender Turner.
The Celts then suffered a blow shortly before the break, with Nathan Turner stretchered off with what looked a serious knee injury.
In the second-half, Spencer continued to be at the heart of all the best attacking moments for Farsley, causing Sports centre back pairing problems with his control and knock-downs.
Mickleover though threatened on the break and fifteen minutes from time Kyle Trenerry in the Celts goals had to be at his best to beat away a Nathan Jarman strike but the hosts deservedly held on.
