He said: “It’s a fantastic three points against a team that were unbeaten in 12 games and full of confidence.

"We knew we had to make it difficult and stop their flow of play and the first half we did that really well.

"We got the penalty and put that away. Wally (James Walshaw) had a few chances and the team in general had a few chances.

"The second half was roles reversed. We rode our luck a bit and the keeper Coops (Paul Cooper) who we brought in from Barnsley was absolutely fantastic.

"But there’s been games we’ve drawn where we’ve deserved more and not had that luck.

"The players have battled for the cause to get three points and they have set another standard in what they’ve done.”

Ossett are back at home again on Saturday when they host Shildon.
