Ossett Albion claimed the bragging rights from their Boxing Day Evo-Stik First Division North derby at Ossett Town with a 3-0 victory.

The game remained goalless until the 28th minute when Nick Wood put through his own goal.

Town remained in the reckoning but Albion won the clash with two quick-fire goals on the hour mark.

Kane Reece fired in to make it 2-0 before Conner Bower grabbed a third just a minute later.

Albion’s home game with Radcliffe Borough and Town’s trip to Droylsden on Sunday were postponed due to frozen pitches.
