KEVIN Sanasy bagged a brace to help Ossett Town to a credible draw at Salford City in Evo-Stik Division 1 North on Saturday.

Things started badly for Phil Sharpe’s men across the Pennines when Rhodri Giggs fired the hosts ahead after just three minutes.

Sanasy levelled in the 11th minute before Jack Redshaw struck midway through the first half to see City back in control.

Town weren’t to be denied though and Sanasy scored his second, this time from the penalty spot, to give the visitors a share of the spoils.

Wakefield FC also picked up a point but it should have been three as Mossley snatched an 89th-minute leveller at Stade France.

It took just two minutes for Brandon Kane to fire the Bears ahead and Steve Nicholson’s men looked to be heading for the victory before Lee Rick scored from the spot with a minute to go to give the visitors a share of the spoils.

The Bears visit Sheffield FC in the first round of the Doodson Sport Cup (kick-off 7.45pm).

Ossett Albion failed to halt their poor run of form as Trafford left the Warehouse Systems Stadium with a 1-0 victory.

Joseph Shaw struck the 46th-minute winner for the visitors to leave rock-bottom Albion with five defeats on the spin in all competitions.

Albion turn their attentions to Doodson Sport Cup action on Tuesday night when they host Brigg Town in the first round (kick-off 7.45pm).
