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.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
