OSSETT Albion bowed out of the West Riding County Cup on Tuesday night despite a battling performance against Blue Square Bet North side Harrogate Town at Dimple Wells.

Stefan Holt’s own goal ten minutes from time sent Town through to a quarter-final date against Guiseley.

Albion had matched their higher-division opponents throughout, however, and carved out enough chances to win the game in what was largely a scrappy contest.

Holt’s unfortunate own goal was the difference and condemned Albion to their third 1-0 home defeat on the spin.

Albion: Rhodes, Mycoe, Nicholson, Quinn, Holt, Lucas, Poole, Hayton, Kelly, Thompson, Brownlee. Subs: Guiry, Johnson, Owen, Gay, Tracey.
