Salford City's centre forward, Gavin Salmon, was carried off, the assistant manager was sent off, and the team as a whole was well off the case as the Ammies, in the end, hung on for a draw that should have been a victory wrapped up in the first half hour.

Pouring forward at every opportunity from the kick off Salford completely dominated the opening period, Adam Morning twice drawing top saves from the Cables' keeper. But, as half time approached, Prescot somehow were allowed to get back into the game and started attacking in droves themselves, hitting the crossbar and missing a few half decent chances.

However, on the stroke of half time, almost against the run of play, Salford City put a sweeping move together which resulted in Adam Morning's low cross being met by Glyn Barker's diving header. Half time 1-0.

If Salford would have made the most of their dominance in the first half hour they would have been out of sight, but a one goal lead never seems to be enough and Prescot Cables began to pile on the pressure, equalising after an attacker squeezed the ball through four defenders almost standing on the goal line.

Following a bad knee injury which saw the lively Gavin Salmon get carried off, Jack Redshaw appeared and tested the Cables' defence with his tricky runs. But by now Prescot were dominating and it was only some last ditch defending – and the fact that Prescot Cables are crap – that kept the scores level.

So, a draw and the unbeaten Salford City run is extended to four games.

Maybe Rhodri Giggs was saving the team for the friendly against Rochdale on Wednesday night (7:30pm Moor Lane) or the FA Cup game against Ramsbottom on Friday (away) but, after the first half hour, this felt like a defeat.
