Bamber Bridge 1 - 2 Mossley

Yes, that post heading is correct - Mossley won. Their first away win for almost four months, their first back-to-back win for four and a half and their first double of the season after beating Bridge by a solitary goal back in December. These are certainly the days of miracle and wonder.

And if you choose to believe the live text commentary that I watched this game by (and why wouldn't you?), it was a day of officials turning a blind eye too as Mossley's opening goal and equaliser was scored through the hand of Steven Moore. Apparently. Allegedly. According to at least one eye witness.

Even so, via the fingers of Mossley's stout number nine or not, it seemed to be no less than the visitors deserved judging by the updates on the aforementioned match update service. Plus it gave the Mossley supporters reading the blow by blow 'as it happens' account of what was occurring at Irongate the chance to embark on a prolonged bout of manus related punnery; the entirety of which, bad gags and all, has been saved for the ages and can be viewed here.

The game was ultimately won very early in the second half - six minutes into it in fact. In what the official Mossley match report is calling a goal of the season contender, Lee Blackshaw (and not Karl Brown - who left the club nearly three months ago - as the ever so accurate Unibond League web site states) repeated his trick from the Clitheroe game and scored the winner.

Further details on that winning goal, who played, who got booked, etc. can be found on Mossleyweb so I'd pop along there if you want to know said details because you're not going to find them on here.
