SILSDEN Whitestar Reserves need a minimum of two points from their last two matches to be certain of clinching the second promotion spot from Division Two of the Skipton Body Repair Centre Craven League.

The Cobbydalers put themselves on the threshold with a 9-0 victory at eighth-placed Salts, who, on Wednesday of last week, ended the unbeaten run of leaders Bingley Town with a 3-1 triumph at Victoria Road.

Man of the match Brad Fay led Whitestar's onslaught with four goals, and he was backed up by substitute Sam Stanfield (3), Zac Conway and James Hitch.

Cowling Reserves are in a three-way battle for promotion in Division Three with leaders Burnley Belvedere and third-placed Salts Reserves.

The south Craveners despatched basement boys Otley Town 5-2 at Keighley Road, with substitute Jack Diamond proving a jewel with a brace.

Man of the match Jimmy Anson, Keiran Duxbury and Callum Lowe completed the tally.

Sporting Keighley have conceded more goals than anyone else in the Premier Division, but they are still five points clear of a demotion berth.

Their goals against tally went up to 72 after an 8-3 setback at home to Grassington United, with Mohammed Ammer, Alhassaine Keita and Shazad Khan on target for the losers, who are on 16 points, well ahead of Cross Hills (five points) and Pendle Renegades and Cowling (11).

Cowling, whose respective men of the match were Jacob Hough and Craig Gregory, played two home matches in three days, losing both 2-0 to Rolls and Settle United.

Broomhill are up one place to sixth in Division One, courtesy of a 5-3 triumph at Chatburn.

The prolific Tyler Brigg led the way with a hat-trick, and was backed up by man of the match Josh Nelson and Michael Turner.

However, eighth-placed Bradley went down 7-2 at home to leaders Carleton, with Lee Brittain and Ben Ramsden being the losers' marksmen.
