OSSETT Town crashed out of the Doodson Sport Cup at the second round stage on Wednesday night when they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Carlton Town.

All the goals came in eleven second-half minutes and it was the Evo-Stik Division 1 South hosts who progressed.

Jimmy Eyles briefly had Ossett on level terms with his seventh goal in as many matches after Luke Smithson had fired Carlton into a 66th-minute lead.

But, just six minutes after Eyles’s strike, Ruben Wiggins-Thomas bagged Carlton’s winner.
