Rossington Main are aiming to pick up their second win of the season at Selby Town on Saturday.

Main will be hoping for a similar outcome to that of their last visit to the Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium on the final day of last season.

They came away 3-1 winners following first half goals from Mark Rudd, Willie McGhie and Joe Hart.

Selby have made a decent start to the campaign, winning their opening three outings before suffering a 3-1 defeat at Pontefract Collieries last weekend.

Rossington have lost just one of their opening four games, picking up five points.

They were moments away from a second win last weekend, before Shirebrook Town snatched a last gasp equaliser at Oxford Street in a 1-1 draw.

Both sides had their chances in an evenly contested first half, with McGhie and Lee Holmes both going close for Main.

Home keeper Adam Stevens was forced into a good save to keep out a Matt Plant header just before the hour mark.

But it was Rossington that grabbed the lead on 61 minutes as Holmes curled in a 25-yard free-kick for his fifth goal of the season.

Shirebrook pressed forward but a combination of some solid defending and fines saves from Stevens looked like keeping the visitors out.

That was until the first minute of stoppage time when a cross was floated to the back post for Reece Littlejohn to nod home the equaliser.
