KEIGHLEY Town went three points clear at the top of the Wharfedale Triangle League Premier Division thanks to a 4-0 win at Cullingworth Youth.

Ryan Stubbs was Town's hero, scoring all four goals, though three of them came in the last 15 minutes.

Keighley were deserved winners but the outcome was in doubt until Stubbs' late flurry, some sloppy defending costing Youth for two of the goals.

Cullingworth created good chances themselves but they could not apply the finishing touch.

Town's pace up front proved a key difference.

Cullingworth are at home to Yeadon on Sunday while Keighley Town head to Hampsthwaite United.

Town's nearest rivals Keighley Athletic, who have two games in hand, bowed out of the West Riding County FA Sunday Cup.

They were beaten 4-1 at Ferrybridge Progressive WMC in the fourth round.

Athletic are back in league action on Sunday when they visit Burton Leonard.
