The Reds go marching on towards play offs !
Farsley Celtic 0 Ossett Town 2
Ossett Town made the short journey to West Yorkshire neighbours Farsley Celtic hoping to end a 15 year run of failing to win at Throstle Nest.
Grant Blacks men have hit a winning streak just at the right time go into this game sitting third in the league and will be hoping to replicate the 3-2 win in the reverse fixture at Ingfield earlier in the season.
