SILSDEN were denied all three points by a determined Albion side who managed to steal a point after netting a 90th minute equaliser to produce another West Yorkshire derby draw.

An unusual fixture allocation pitched Silsden against Albion for the second time in successive weeks, after playing to a 3-3 last week, the result remained the same this time out at the Keighley Road Stadium.

The home side deservedly took the lead in the opening 25 minutes when Jake Taylor-Mountfield brilliantly curled a left foot strike past the keeper.

Albion were then reduced to 10 men when left back Jack McGahan, who had already had a yellow card was dismissed following a disputed decision.

The visitors levelled at the death after substitute Jordan Chippendale's low free kick took a wicked deflection off the defensive wall to find the back of the net.

Silsden are now unbeaten in their last three and move up to 13th with the point, while Kulwinder Singh Sandhu's men remain in tenth after taking eight points from their last four fixtures.

The hosts started by making a goal line clearance in the opening exchanges, when Josh Brown cleared a follow up shot after Javan Benjamin's angled shot was brilliantly parried away by Silsden custodian Ben Higginson.

Silsden responded fantastically in the 22nd minute, when Mark Everingham fed an incisive pass out right to Jake Taylor-Mountfield who exchanged passes with Khurram Shazad before cutting inside in the box onto his left foot to find the far corner superbly.

The Cobbydalers had a further opportunity after 35 minutes, when a ball won in midfield was played through to Laurence Sorhaindo who pulled his shot agonisingly wide of the far post.

The Lions started the second half brightly, playing some neat and tidy football and enjoying much more possession in an attempt to get back into the game.

But it was Silsden who threatened to increase their lead when a good ball played out to the right found Taylor-Mountfield whose strike was cleanly handled by Matthew Smith.

Around the hour mark Silsden started to go through the gears and create openings at will, the best of which was down the right with Taylor-Mountfield forcing another fine save from Smith diving low to his right to parry away as Silsden threatened to increase their lead.

In the 67th minute Silsden were awarded a free kick on the right for a foul on the dangerous Taylor-Mountfield which Shazad took, playing a superb ball deep into the box for Brown, but he failed to get enough contact onto his diving header to spurn the opportunity with the goal at his mercy.

Taylor-Mountfield had a shot saved by Smith and his follow-up fell invitingly to Aidan Kirby with the goal gaping, but he blasted his shot over when he should have scored.

Albion were then reduced to 10 men when McGahan was given his marching orders.

Manager Danny Forrest threw on a couple of substitutions late on the try to secure all 3 points with fresh legs up front.

The visitors still carried a threat and following a free kick in the 80th minute the ball broke to centre back Pashley who smashed his shot at goal but Higginson did well to parry the ball away.

However in the last exchanges, Albion were harshly awarded a free kick on the left hand corner of the Silsden box for a foul against Brown which looked like a perfectly good tackle. Substitute Jordan Chippendale struck his free kick against the wall and past the helpless Higginson to level the scores against the run of play.
