This edition of “Have We Met” is probably one of the shortest there is, as we have only played against the newly formed Ossett United once and that came just over a year ago at Ingfield.
We were on a decent run of results when he headed across the Roses border, having recorded three wins, two in the FA Cup against Winsford United and Maltby Main and then a Tuesday night home win over Clitheroe 2-0.
419 spectators came and witnessed Nick Guest put the home side ahead on 14 minutes before Teddy Perkins, who is now on Watford’s books, equalised near the half hour mark.
It was the third draw in a row at Ingfield for the Rams, having returned from the away game with Ossett Town in February 2018 with a 1-1 draw thanks to Sam Heathcote’s last ditch 90th minute strike nn which stole a point.
And it was the same result in January 2017 when Alex Peterson’s goal for Ossett on 29 minutes was levelled by an Adam Kay penalty on the hour.
The Rams have just a single win at the West Yorkshire ground and a sole Gary Stopforth goal on 17 minutes in the second match of the 2012/13 season was enough to grab a 1-0 success on 21 August 2012, which came hot on the heels of a 3-3 draw at home to Cammell Laird that kicked off our first ever season in the Northern Premier, after the glory of lifting the North West Counties.
Can the Rams bounce back from the disappointment of Tuesday night’s FA Cup exit and set off on another epic FA Trophy run like the one we saw two years ago?
