Leek Town's grandstand finish failed to save them from a 3-4 defeat at Farsley in UniBond Division One last night. Blues, who had won their previous four games, trailed 1-4 after 75 minutes, but were eventually beaten by the clock as the home side went into retreat.

Leek dominated the first half, but found themselves behind at the break when Farsley were awarded a 37th-minute penalty against the run of play, converted by Midwood.

Worse was to follow in the second half when Farsley added two more goals in as many minutes through Spence and Freeman.

Dave MacPherson pulled one back on 66 minutes, but with Leek pushing forward Freeman added Farsley's fourth.

MacPherson added his second in latching on to a poor back pass to round the goalkeeper and Leek were then awarded a penalty when Anthony Danylyk was tripped.

Dave Whittaker blasted his spot-kick against an upright, but Danylyk netted the rebound to complete the scoring.
