A hotly-disputed penalty proved to be the difference as Ossett Albion U13s lost 2-1 at home to rivals Ossett Town.

Albion started the local derby well and good work from Luke McGrath set-up Sufyaan Shafi for a coolly taken finish to give the home side an early lead.

Town fought back and found an equaliser midway through the first-half.

The game then became scrappy with neither side creating clear chances.

But the turning point came with 20 minutes left when the referee awarded a hotly-disputed penalty to the visitors, condemning Albion to a very unfortunate defeat.
