Depleted Sleights hit by late winner

JIM Howard’s Sleights lost out by a single goal to a third division promotion contender for the second straight week, this past Saturday.

The village side were depleted to the point of having just 11 available players, but looked set for a point after Ian Smith’s brace, despite the visitors’ strong start to the second half.

But with five minutes remaining, fifth-placed Snainton, with just two defeats this season, took advantage of a lack of concentration and grabbed all three points against their young opponents.
