TADCASTER Albion have made it to the third qualifying round of the FA Cup for only the second-ever time after beating Mossley on penalties, writes John Clothier.

Ify Ofoegbu put Taddy into the lead in the 13th minute but Dylan Fitzgerald got the hosts back on level terms just five minutes later.

The scores remained level between the two Northern Premier League north/west division sides until the final whistle, from where the game went to spot kicks.

Omar Sanyang blasted in the winning penalty to secure a trip to National League North outfit Darlington next midweek. Third qualifying round ties are due to be played between Monday, October 12 and Thursday 15.

On Tuesday night (7.45pm), the Brewers travel to Dunston in the league.

Tadcaster were without the Pontefract casualties captain Michael Ingham and Corey Roper, who joined Marco Basic on the injured list, while Kain Rogerson was suspended.

New keeper Will Appleyard made his debut having signed during the week.

The Brewers were quickly out of the blocks as Bailey Thompson put in a strong tackle and then crossed to Ofoegbu and although the shot was blocked it fell to Junayd Pandor, who volleyed over the bar.

On 13 minutes, Albion went in front. Andy Milne collected a short corner and pulled the cross back to the waiting Ofoegbu who, from 15 yards out, drove the ball straight into the near corner of the net.

The lead did not last long, however, and the Lilywhites equalised after 18 minutes through Fitzgerald, who bullied his way into the six-yard box and from point-blank range headed his team back into contention.

Appleyard saved one penalty while Simon Russell, Bailey Thompson, Kevin Santos and Sanyang netted in a 4-3 shoot-out win.

Pickering Town lost 1-0 at Mill Lane to Dunston in the NPL north/west division. The Pikes host Ossett United tomorrow evening (7.45pm).

Selby Town suffered their fourth straight loss after they meekly surrendered a two-goal lead in the last 25 minutes in a 4-3 loss at Parkgate, writes Phil Dearnley.

A much better performance than Tuesday seemed to have put the Robins in a great position to earn their first three points of this Northern Counties East League division one season.

That was until, like a switch being thrown, all drive and intensity was lost.

Town were unable to stop crosses being fired into their box, and unable to stop Parkgate from taking full advantage of the opportunities presented.

Ominously, Selby are clear of last place by only one goal, and pre-season hopes of promotion look a pipe dream.

Town were able to welcome back Luke Sellers, and George Bissett to their back line. Liam Preston was handed a debut at right-back, and impressed all game.

Zeph Thomas continued up front in the absence of Josh Street, who is out for another three weeks and one of a number of injured players.

Selby made a reasonable start to the half but, after starting in the ascendency, they fell behind. Acres of space down the Selby left allowed a dangerous cross to find Zak Khalifa at the far post and the striker buried his chance.

Liam Flanagan restored parity in the 21st minute. A cross from the right was not cleared, and was returned to the box from the left. The part-cleared ball reached Flanagan, who fizzed a shot into the corner of the net.

Thomas turned the game on its head 10 minutes later, meeting Jon-Paul Vass's in-swinging corner to nod Selby in front.

The second half started well and Thomas, having his best game so far in a Selby shirt, held the ball up to play in Flanagan behind the Parkgate defenders. His low cross towards the far post fell perfectly for the charging Vass to smash home.

But a turning point came around 65 minutes in, when Flanagan missed a glorious chance to put the Robins out of sight. Played in behind the Parkgate defence, and with only the goalkeeper to beat, he somehow shot wide of the near post.

Suddenly sapped of drive and energy, Selby succumbed to Parkgate's waves of attacks, Brad Kilburn heading a corner past Selby’s exposed goalkeeper Dylan Parkin.

Another unchallenged header from Freddy Tracey put the hosts level.

Selby attacks became rare and the inevitable winning goal came just before the end. Yet again it was all too easy for the attackers to find a cross, and this time it was Sam Ackroyd who was unchallenged as he headed past Parkin.

Town host Armthorpe Welfare tomorrow evening (7.45pm). Fellow strugglers Armthorpe are also without a point this season.
