Tadcaster Albion have ended their five-match winless run with an emphatic 5-2 victory away at Ossett Albion.

Billy Miller’s men got off to the perfect start, breaking the deadlock after just two minutes.

Stand-in full back Jason Mycoe pounced upon Rob Youhill’s flick-on and drove in at the back post.

The hosts rallied and levelled 10 minutes later when James Eyles dug the ball out from under his feet and fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

The Brewers always looked the more dangerous going forward and they regained the lead 12 minutes from the break.

Conor Sellars is renowned as a free-kick specialist and he showed why once again, arrowing in from 20 yards leaving home goalkeeper Jordan Bradshaw stranded.

Ossett came out in the second period with their tails well and truly up and equalised once again when Eyles converted a penalty kick.

The award of the spot-kick was hotly disputed however.

The home side wanted a penalty originally for handball by Mycoe, and although this wasn’t given, one was awarded just seconds later.

The next goal proved to be crucial in the result of the match as Youhill’s teasing cross from the right was turned into his own net by Oliver Yates.

This seemed to kill off Ossett as Taddy stormed on to victory in the final few minutes.

Youhill was again the provider, this time for Tom Corner, who glanced in his ninth of the season.

And four became five in injury time when Sellars cut inside and hammered in his second to seal a much-needed three points.
