JASSIM Alali rescued a point for Wakefield FC as the Bears drew 2-2 at home against Warrington Town on Tuesday night.

Paul Lines’s men, currently bottom of the table, showed plenty of spirit to come from two goals down and take a share of the spoils in their Evo-Stik Division 1 North clash.

Rob Hardwick gave the visitors the lead at Stade France before Thomas Hardwick doubled their advantage from the spot just before half-time.

Wakefield’s fight-back started from the penalty spot just after the hour when Fernando Moke pulled a goal back for the hosts.

And Alali netted five minutes from time to give the Bears their second point in four days.

Ossett Albion were left disappointed following a slender 1-0 loss against Prescot Cables at the Warehouse Systems Stadium.

Steven Tames netted the decisive goal five minutes before half-time as Albion struggled to untangle their visitors.

Lee Garside scored twice from the penalty spot but it wasn’t enough to stop Ossett Town leaving Mossley with nothing to show for their efforts.

The hosts scored twice in as many first-half minutes through former Wakefield FC striker Tom Denton and Danny Queeley before Garside pulled a goal back in the 17th minute.

His second spot-kick goal came just before half-time, but the Lancashire side secured maximum points in the 69th minute through Benjamin Richardson.
