The recent three game unbeaten run that has seen Leigh Genesis climb from the foot of the Evo-Stik League First Division North table was ended by the worst possible side at Crilly Park as Harrogate Railway Athletic, third bottom before the game, widened the gap between Genesis and league safety.

The recent three game unbeaten run that has seen Leigh Genesis climb from the foot of the Evo-Stik League First Division North table was ended by the worst possible side at Crilly Park as Harrogate Railway Athletic, third bottom before the game, widened the gap between Genesis and league safety.

The visitors took the lead as early as the fourteenth minute when Wayne Harratt was left unmarked to head a cross in to the corner of Phil Priestley's net.

Leigh levelled on seventy five minutes when Steve Ferrigan headed home a corner, but Leigh were denied a point at the last breath as the game entered injury time when Michael Duckworth tapped in a rebound for the visitors after Priestley had parried away the original shot.

Leigh are now ahead of bottom-placed Ossett Albion on goal difference and eleven points behind third-bottom Harrogate Railway Athletic with eleven games of the season remaining.

Genesis' next game is a home fixture against Woodley Sports on Tuesday evening (15th March, 7.45pm kick off) at Crilly Park before second-placed Chorley and their multitude of former Leigh players and staff make the short trip to Crilly Park the following Saturday (19th March, 3pm).

Leigh Genesis; Phil Priestley, David Webb, Adam Parkhouse, Alex Grisedale, Rob Flint, Steve Ferrigan, Connor Millington (Jack Smith 70), Dave Dempsey (Ali Asgari 61), Stuart Rudd, John Hedges, Dale McDonald (Leyton Ellison 64). Sub (not used); Danny Bell
