OSSETT Albion’s poor run of form continued on Monday night as they suffered a fifth defeat on the spin with a 3-2 loss at Curzon Ashton.
The Dimple Wells club travelled across the Pennines for their second Evo-Stik Division 1 North match in three days but returned with the same outcome after suffering a last-gasp 2-1 loss at Burscough on Saturday.
Albion were always in with a shout of getting something from their clash with Curzon after skipper Adam Hayton provided an immediate reply to Tony Evans’s 18th-minute opener for the mid-table hosts.
Evans struck again just before the hour mark and Kristian Dennis had John Flanagan’s men seemingly home and dry with a third goal with 17 minutes to play.
Battling Albion continued to plug away for something to show for their efforts and Dale Kelly pulled a goal back just a minute after Dennis’s strike to make it a tense finish.
The hosts hung on, however, to leave Albion third from bottom and with just two wins from their last ten matches in all competitions.
