Nathan Perks got two as Glasshoughton Welfare came up with a performance of Superhero qualities to beat Rossington Main 2-0 after playing with ten men for an hour after Craig Tonkinson’s red card.

The outstanding victory and clean sheet keeps Glasshoughton firmly in the race for promotion from Toolstation NCEL Division One. Key midfielder Tonkinson saw red for a challenge before Perks fired home from close range.

Perks sealed it with a penalty in the second half on the hour.

The downside for Welfare is that Darren Holmes and Lee Vigars may need to search for some new caped crusaders as Tonkinson faces a three-match ban at a time when goalkeeper Mat Zaniewski and defenders Adam Walsh and Josh Vamplew are injured.

There was heartbreak for Nostell Miners Welfare, who lost 2-1 at Campion after Aidan Kirkby’s last minute double. Kane Reece’s strike on the hour had seemingly won it for Nostell.

North Ferriby remain third as Danny Emmerton (2) and Jamie Forrester earned them a 3-2 win over Armthorpe Welfare, whose key man Adam Baskerville got a double.

Bruno Holden’s 94th minute equaliser rescued a point for Parkgate in the 2-2 draw at Worsbrough Bridge. Kai Hancock got both goals for Worsbrough. Former Handsworth attacker Alex Rippon was also on the score-sheet for Parkgate.

Chris Murray and Callum Stone moved Hall Road Rangers further away from danger with the goals in the 2-0 win at winless East Hull.

Ollerton Town and Hallam battled out a goal-less draw.
