A SECOND half super show by leading Goalscorer Jordan Cover gave the black n white stripes at first ever League victory over Mossley at the eighteenth attempt.

The overnight rain had put the game in doubt but sterling work by the ground team ensured that a precautionary pitch inspection wasn’t deemed necessary.

The first half was an even affair with both teams playing some nice football despite the surface cutting up.

Jordan Cover hit the near post from out wide while a close range Mossley header narrowly missed the target which had Colls keeper Greg Hartley heaving a sigh of relief.

Cover was clinical after the break. On 50 minutes a Hartley clearance was misjudged by a defender which enabled Cove to scamper clear and his finish was clinical.

The visitors continued to play the right way but the Colls defence was on top form. With ten left on the clock a one-two with Ben Hardcastle saw Cover in space in the Mossley penalty box and he coolly added his second.

Five minutes later he notched his second hat-trick of the campaign. Josh Messer produced a fine long ball for him to run onto and he took it past the oncoming Mossley custodian before sidefooting home.

A goal conceded late into injury time could not take the gloss of a fine display with Jordan Cove deservedly getting the plaudits.

A first ever hat-trick in the Evo-Stik League, a first ever back to back win the competition and as stated earlier an overdue league triumph over Mossley. A fifth consecutive league game undefeated saw Michael Clegg’s team rise a couple of places to seventeenth on the league ladder.

On Saturday Colls visit Glissop North End and on Monday night Brighouse Town visit the Kensite Stadium. 7.45,Ko.
