OSSETT Albion will be hoping to bag their first win of the new Evo-Stik League First Division North season tomorrow, Saturday, when they entertain AFC Fylde.

Albion lost 4-2 at Witton Albion last Saturday and were defeated 3-0 at home to Skelmersdale United on Tuesday.

Tomorrow’s game will be a tough one against a team that has won both of their opening games without conceding a goal.

There will be little time for Albion to recover before they are back in action on Monday evening with a trip to Curzon Ashton, who have also kept clean sheets in winning their first two games.

Ossett Town have enjoyed a much more successful start to their First Division North season, notching-up six points from their first two outings.

Town opened their account with a 2-1 success at home to Mossley on Saturday before prevailing 3-2 at Trafford in midweek.

Tomorrow, Town face a tough visit to Lancaster City who have won both of their opening games, before returning to Stade France on Tuesday to take on Radcliffe Borough.

Wakefield FC can also boast a 100 per-cent record from their early season fixtures, beating Clitheroe 1-0 last weekend before defeating Woodley Sports by the same score on Wednesday evening.

The Bears host Witton Albion on Saturday and travel to Durham City on Tuesday.
