An injury time strike from Ossett Albion skipper Michael Senior secured a point for the visitors in an entertaining battle between the league's basement sides.

Albion took the lead on 9 minutes through centre back Mark Ryan and held the lead at the break before Nathan McDonald missed the chance to level in the second half when his penalty was saved by Ashley Conner.
Leigh didn't have to wait long to equalise when Marvin McDonald levelled on 56 minutes before brother Nathan made up for his penalty miss and put Genesis in front on 63 minutes.
Albion substitute Richard Tracey levelled at 2-2 on 76 minutes before Neil Smith seemingly won it for the hosts on 81 minutes with a terrific strike.
However, there was still time for Ossett to equalise when Dave Dempsey conceded a penalty and then received his marching orders for a second bookable offence. Senior saw his spot kick saved by Phil Priestley but then thumped the rebound home to secure a point.

Leigh Genesis; Phil Priestley, Dale McDonald, Dave Dempsey, Connor Millington, Steve Brockley (Gary Grant 77), Stuart Rudd, Nikos Papargiris, Steve Ferrigan, Neil Smith, Marvin McDonald, Nathan McDonald. Subs (not used); David Webb, Leyton Ellison, Andrew Farrimond
