Pontefract Collieries maintained their promotion bid when they came back with a 3-0 victory from their trip to play Hall Road Rangers in Division One of the Toolstation NCE League on Tuesday night.

Liam Radford put Ponte ahead just after the half-hour and midfielder Aaron Joseph made it 2-0 at half-time.

The defence stayed strong after the break as Rangers looked to hit back and Colls made sure of the points when Aaron Moxam netted their third on 74 minutes.

Victory kept them in third, level with Hemsworth MW, who also won on Tuesday night, and just one point behind leaders AFC Emley.

This Saturday Colls are back at home when they take on Teversal (3pm) and next Tuesday they are away to Rossington Main (7.45pm).

They had their scheduled NCE Division One game at Hallam postponed last Saturday with the game now rearranged for Tuesday, March 31.
