WAKEFIELD FC continued their good form since the turn of the year with a 3-1 victory over Goole AFC at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

The Bears had to come from behind to seal their win, which was their second from as many matches in 2013 and their first back-to-back home wins of the season.

Goole led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a David Taylor strike but the second half belonged to Paul Lines’s men.

Andrew Fieldhouse bagged Wakefield’s leveller just before the hour mark but home fans had to wait until the latter stages for the Bears to secure all three points.

Caldon Henson struck in the 87th minute and Shequille Clarke made sure of the win in the 90th minute.

Ossett Town were involved in a six-goal thriller against Farsley FC at Stade France.

The see-saw encounter swung both ways before both sides eventually settled for a point.

Wes Milnes struck in the 25th-minute to give Town the half-time advantage but goals from Adam Priestley and David Stead turned the game the way of the visitors with 20 minutes to go.

Jimmy Eyles levelled for Town but Stead struck again to seemingly send the points back to Farsley.

That was until Luke Sharry netted five minutes from time to give Craig Elliott’s side a share of the spoils.

Ossett Albion’s task was always going to be tough at Evo-Stik Division 1 North leaders Mossley and so it proved as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat.

Adam Mather struck both of Mossley’s goals, one in each half, to leave the Dimple Wells side in relegation trouble at the foot of the table.
