Another four goals in a midweek game, but this time a victory, though this one came in the second round of the League Cup when the team visited Albion Sports at the Horsfall Stadium in Bradford last Wednesday evening.

Jack Carr broke clear early on but George McMahon was equal to his effort and kept out the shot.

In the 17th minute, Carr latched on to the ball on the corner of the area and fired home a smart shot to open the scoring.

Fernando Moke hit wide for the home side, but then Carr had a fine run but shot just wide of the mark.

McMahon then denied Danny Edwards after Carr’s cross from the left wing, but then Albion levelled in the 40th minute when Robbie Fox was sent clear and dinked the ball over the advancing Tommy Brown.

Owen Murphy then shot over as the home side looked to add to that score, but it was Knaresborough who went in at the break with a goal advantage after Carr’s shot from the left corner of the box took a deflection into the net in the 44th minute.

Carr came close soon after half time and Edwards was unable to convert the rebound.

On the hour, Knaresborough were awarded a penalty and Edwards did make it 3-1 and Phil Milsom hit high over the top in the next chance for Town.

Brown saved from Fox as Albion briefly pressed and Dom Creamer had a shot kept out by McMahon after breaking free of his marker.

Creamer then set up the fourth goal in the 84th minute when his run down the left was ended with a dangerous centre which McMahon parried out to Edwards who controlled and fired home.

A late cross from the right wing was headed home by Aran Basi to make the final score 4-2, but Knaresborough were worthy winner and will hope to build on this result in future league ventures.
