SILSDEN shrugged off a shocking September to pull off an extraordinary 3-2 win at Staveley Miners Welfare in the NCEL Premier Division on Saturday.

They lost three league games in a row last month to drop into the bottom half, as well as their FA Vase tie at home to Bradford District rivals Albion Sports.

And they looked all set to lose again here, after Samuel Kay headed home for Staveley in the 87th minute to put the hosts 2-1 up.

But the Cobbydalers roared back to produce an extraordinary turnaround.

Brad Riley netted in the 89th minute to equalise, before Joe Mitchell unleashed a sensational strike to win it for the visitors in injury-time.

Charlie Bell had put Staveley 1-0 up after 15 minutes, and that was how it stayed for the majority of the game.

The wasteful hosts could not grab a second to give themselves some breathing space, and Silsden began to dominate as the game moved into the final half an hour.

Their pressure finally told when Mo Qasim equalised in the 81st minute, but Kay's goal looked to have undone all that hard work.

Not so however, and Riley and Mitchell's late rescue act ensured the Cobbydalers moved up to eighth in the table on Saturday teatime.
