Garforth Town 0-2 Albion Sports
Albion earn quick revenge over cup exit
With the recent meeting still fresh in the mind, there was always going to be added spice to this league game.
Both teams were coming into this on the back of impressive wins, but Albion had a lot to prove after their FA Vase exit at the hands of Garforth.
Brice Tiani tucked away a Danny Cunningham cut back after just four minutes to give the visitors a perfect start.
Danny Harris proved to be a handful early on and twice saw shots fizz across the Albion goal, although Anil Singh really should have increased the lead, but flashed his effort wide of goal .
A niggly game wasn't helped at times by an over-fussy refereeing display, that would eventually see Michael O'Brien receive his marching orders in the second half for two yellow cards.
The old adage of ten men being tougher opponents than eleven came was proving true and Garforth found it difficult to find a way past the men in red, who were doggedly determined to leave with all three points.
Grama Nicholas threw on Curtly Martin-Wyatt, Nathan Perks and Matt Marshall in a bid to get through the Albion back line, but with an abundance of attackers pushing forward, Town were hit with a last minute break. Substitute Marcus Edwards powered into the box and smashed the ball past Hunter to round off a 2-0 win for his side.
