Knaresborough Town were happy to see an end to September, a month that has seen them play six league matches of which four have been lost and two drawn after the latest defeat at the hands of Albion Sports on Saturday.

An early mix up saw Albion take the lead in the 11th minute when Robbie Fox had a snap shot from some distance, seeing his shot hit the post, a cross put back in and the ball not cleared fully to Fernando Moke who hammered home off a defender’s leg.

A further confusion almost gifted the visitors a second when Brett Smith and Tommy Brown and managed to turn the ball wide before Knaresborough went close when Cole Wilding fired over from Harry Lee’s long throw from the left.

A Dom Creamer free kick was then saved and Jack Carr’s effort was blocked before the teams turned at the break.

Adam Priestley was sent free soon after the restart, but pulled his shot wide and Brown saved well from Robbie Fox.

Ewan Gregson was then just wide after another long throw before Brown again denied Fox, this time after the striker broke clear of the defensive line.

The last clear chance fell to Nathan Cartman, who was perfectly placed to capitalise on Joe Navier’s cross from the left, but mistimed his header which went wide.

October will hopefully bring a change of fortune for Knaresborough who have played some good football without the necessary points gain.
