Wakefield’s Evo-Stik Premier League teams had a Bank Holiday Monday to forget as all three slipped to defeats in Division 1 North.

Wakefield FC saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end at Harrogate Railway Athletic as the hosts grabbed two late goals to secure a 2-0 win.

DERBY DAY: Wakefield FC and Ossett Albion battled out a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

DERBY DAY: Wakefield FC and Ossett Albion battled out a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Railway broke the deadlock in the 72nd-minute through Daniel Thirkell before Jesus Martin-Farina doubled Harrogate’s lead four minutes from time.

Ossett Town suffered defeat by the same scoreline at New Mills. Craig Elliott’s men kept Mills out for almost an hour but Jack Poxon opened the scoring ten minutes into the second half and Chris Baguley added a second in the 77th minute.

Ossett Albion were looking to pick up their first home points of the season but were edged out 1-0 by Farsley FC at Dimple Wells.

Matthew Dempsey grabbed the only goal of the game just after the hour mark to send the visitors home with all three points.

The defeat followed Albion picking up their first point of the season with a 2-2 draw at derby foes Wakefield FC on Saturday.

It took Albion just three minutes to open the scoring at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium as Henry Owen poked the visitors ahead.

The hosts always looked dangerous on the break and carved out a leveller on the half-hour mark through David Bordman.

But Richard Tracey’s men were determined to get their first win of the season and Dale Kelly edged the visitors back ahead just before half-time with his third goal of the season.

The second half was a more scrappy affair but Albion had a golden opportunity to extend their lead when the referee awarded a penalty but former Wakefield man Adam Muller saw his effort saved.

The missed chance came back to haunt the visitors as Wakefield grabbed a point thanks to Harrison Blakey’s leveller just after the hour mark.

It was a case of two points dropped for Ossett Town on Saturday as they threw away a 3-1 lead to take a point from their home clash against Mossley.

Kevin McGrath levelled Nicholas Wood’s opener for Town but a brace from Fernando Moke after the break seemingly had Craig Elliott’s men heading for three points.

That was until Mossley struck twice in the last ten minutes, through Sam Madeley and John Bennett, to snatch a point.
