WYKE Wanderers have missed an opportunity to seal third place in Division One of the West Yorkshire League.

Victory at Featherstone Colliery would have sealed the deal but a 3-1 defeat means that the Bradford club can now be caught by fourth-placed Fev.

Karl Fawcett got the consolation goal but Wyke also had Michael Stowell sent off.

Oxenhope Rec, who are coming to the end of a mixed campaign, beat visitors Rothwell 6-1 in midweek but then lost 3-1 at Leeds Modernians at the weekend.

Lee Reilly (3), Dan Moriarty (2) and Dan Driver were on target against Rothwell, but only Moriarty could find the net at Mods for the 10th-placed visitors.

Meanwhile, basement boys Brighouse Old Boys lost their penultimate match 4-2 at eighth-placed Aberford Albion.

Pool may well go down from the Premier Division but they are not going out with a whimper as they beat Sherburn White Rose 2-1 and drew 2-2 with Horbury Town, both at Arthington Lane.

James Caroll and Tom Smith scored against White Rose and Smith and Joe Garner-Currie were the marksmen against Horbury as Pool climbed off the bottom with one game left.

Field went down 3-1 at home to prospective champions Carlton Athletic, with Dan Laban getting the consolation.

Otley Town are guaranteed second place in Division Two, and maybe that was on their mind when they lost 6-0 at home to fifth-placed Huddersfield YM.

Field could well lift the Alliance Division One title and kept the pressure on second-placed Beeston St Anthony's by winning 3-1 in a feisty game at Oxenhope Rec and 3-2 at Carlton Athletic.

Dan Broadway (2), who was sent off, and John Penn netted at the Rec, who replied via Ethan Lister, but referee Dean Grant was busy, also booking five players, three from Rec.

Liam Lambert, Eli Petschak and substitute Mark Wilcox netted at Carlton, while Rec also went down 5-0 at home to St Anthony's.

In Alliance Division Two, Ilkley Town lost both halves 3-2 at Howden Clough, with Alfie Warren (2), Alex Macpherson and Chris Morris on target for the visitors.
