SALFORD CITY GARFORTH TOWN
 

Star date: 23rd August 2011 

Salford City 2 Garforth Town 2

SALFORD GO SO CLOSE

An exciting first half that could have seen Salford score five ended 2-2 as Jack Redshaw netted twice to underline his impressive start to the season.
In the end, Salford had to be content with a draw to extend the Ammies unbeaten run to two games…

Every year (apart from the Great Escape game of course – see here) Garforth seem to sneak goals against Salford City. And tonight was no exception as the team that models itself on Brazil (yeah, like in yer dreams) had two shots and scored two first half goals.

The Garforth opener came from a breakaway after sustained Salford pressure, and for the next fifteen minutes home fans wondered if the Rhodri Giggs' team was ever going to score.

First Gavin Salmon blasted over the gaping goal after a great save from the Garforth keeper to keep out a Jack Redshaw drive. Then Adam Morning hit the underside of the crossbar following a clever free kick on the edge of the box. And a few minutes later, Redshaw was inches wide with yet another shot.

In the end it was route one that brought the equaliser, keeper Andy Roberston launching the ball over the Garforth defence for Jack Redshaw to pick up and lob the out-rushing goalie.

But Garforth didn't buckle and went ahead with only their second shot of the match. As the break approached, Jack Redshaw again got the equaliser, this time with a header from a corner. Some feat, given he was the smallest player in the six yard box.

After a thrilling first half, deadlocked at 2-2, the second half didn't explode into a feast of Salford goals, Gavin Salmon going close, and Garforth playing on the break forcing Andy Robertson into a couple of decent saves.

So a draw it was and Salford City's unbeaten run extends to two games. Next up, Trafford at home on Saturday – three points here, surely!
