Albion Sports moved to within four points of securing promotion from Division One after beating Ventus Yeadon Celtic 4-3.
Albion racked up a four-goal advantage with strikes from league debutant Jay Sobers (2), Mark Flanagan and Asif Hussain.

Salts, with strikes from Tom Wilson (2) and Wayne Walsh, beat Littletown 3-0, while Steeton - with a Sam Rooke hat-trick and two each from Adam Spencer and Joe Park - beat Eastmoor 7-1.
Bottom-placed South Bradford, who have the top three sides to play in their last four games, closed to within a point of already relegated Crag Road United and Keighley Shamrocks after winning their first game since before Christmas. Mathew McGrath (2) and Martin Flowers scored in the 3-1 win over Dudley Hill Rangers.
