SHANE Kelsey struck eight minutes from time to give Ossett Town a share of the spoils against neighbours Ossett Albion at Stade France.

Victory for Albion would have taken them above their derby rivals and Tyrone Gay fired them ahead after 37 minutes.

And they looked to be heading for three points until Kelsey's late leveller in the 82nd minute rescued the hosts and made for a second draw between the sides this season.

Wakefield FC almost produced a shock win at promotion-chasing Farsley FC before the hosts came from behind to net twice in the last 15 minutes for victory.

Fernando Moke scored two minutes before the break to give Paul Lines's men the lead. It lasted until the 75th minute when Dave Briggs levelled for Farsley before an 85th-minute Ben Jones penalty gave the hosts the win.

The defeat leaves Wakefield two points adrift of safety in Evo-Stik League Division 1 North with three games to go. And the Bears face Harrogate Railway Athletic, the side directly above them in the table, on Saturday.
