All square in Craven derby

Bradley 2 Cononley Sports Reserves 2
Honours finished even in the Craven League Division Three derby after second half goals from Craig Ebbrell and Colin Throupe rescued a point for Cononley.
A scrappy game saw both sides struggled to impose any pressure.
Bradley were first to show when a Cononley player made a rash tackle in the box and gave away a penalty, which Robert Watson converted.
Bradley then put the Cononley defence under some pressure, forcing a back pass which went straight past the keeper and into the net, making it 2-0 at half time.
Bradley were holding the upper hand after the break but from being in control failed to clear their lines and a Cononley miskick scooped past the Bradley keeper.
This gave the visitors a bit of hope and they put the Bradley defence under pressure with a shot going into the bottom corner for the equaliser.
Bradley created plenty of chances but could not convert the winner with some poor finishing to blame.
The teams meet again next week.
