Knaresborough Town were pushed hard, and had to hit two late goals to seal the points from Tuesday’s match with Athersley Recreation at Manse Lane.
Jack Briscoe shot over from close range for Athersley after Lee Garside headed down a cross from the right, but soon afterwards, Nick Black fired over for Knaresborough.
A curling shot from Josh Garbutt was pushed wide by Daniel Morton, but the visitors pressed and a Jamie Moxon shot was deflected wide and an Adam White effort flew over.
Against the run of play. It was Knaresborough who went ahead in the 44th minute when Will Lenehan and Nick Black both headed on a free kick and Brad Walker nipped in to sneak the ball inside the near post.
Early in the second half, Garside had a shot blocked and then saved by Liam Corbett and when the ball broke quickly, Adam Baker, on his Knaresborough debut, fired just wide of the far post.
Athersley levelled in the 57th minute when a corner from the right swung, and then stalled, in the wind and evaded everyone to settle in the net.
The goal seemed to galvanise the home side and, after pushing hard, they went back into the lead when Greg Kidd shot home from Ben Cohen’s centre from the left side in the 78th minute.
Six minutes later, Black beat a defender on the right wing, fed inside to Walker who ran through and squared to Lawrance Hunter who had the easy task of notching his first goal for the club only two minutes after entering the field as substitute.
Another substitute, Athersley’s Kieran Scargill, was then sent off for treading on Ben Parkes, only three minutes after he had joined the game, and his dismissal made the home task of seeing out the game a little easier and Knaresborough duly held out for the points.
