SALFORD CITY MURDER MOSSLEY
 

Star date: 18th December 2011

Salford City 4 Mossley 1

SUPER SALFORD CITY DESTROY MOSSLEY

At a freezing Moor Lane, and with half the side out injured or suspended, Salford City turned on the power to blast away Mossley with three second half goals, including two from super sub Ben Beresford

The Ammies now go into the Christmas period in 9th place in the Evo-Stik First Division, before playing Radcliffe Borough on Boxing Day.

Salford City stormed the second half to stun Mossley at Moor Lane yesterday  with three second half goals.

The Ammies, with five players out injured or suspended, had taken the lead after only ten minutes, when Danny Heffernan controlled the ball well outside the area, strode past a couple of defenders and teed the ball up for a stunning half volley that screamed into the bottom right hand corner of the net. A superb goal that gave Salford a deserved 1-0 lead.

Unfortunately that lead only lasted about five minutes, with Mossley equalising after the cursed `school end' divot at Moor Lane struck again. This time Josh Bardsley was the victim, air kicking a bobbling cross in the six yard box that found its way to a Mossley forward who joyfully swept the ball home. 1-1.

For the rest of the first half it was proper end-to-end stuff as Jamie Baguley headed off the line from a Mossley attack, Cayne Hanley rattled the post for Salford and Mossley hit the bar from a deflected shot. Indeed, as the teams trooped off at half time, Mossley could consider themselves the better team.

All that was about to change after the break, although Mossley went close in the early stages, Baguley again heading off the line and Chris Howarth making a top save from the resulting shot. However the introduction of sub Ben Beresford, as defender Raphale Evans went off injured, swung the game in Salford's favour.

First Beresford stabbed the ball home from a Scott Metcalfe cross from the left in the 57th minute, and ten minutes later he repeated the feat from a Craig Flowers cross from the right to make it 3-1.

Minutes later it could have been four, but Scott Metcalfe, free in the centre, pushed his shot just past the post, and shortly afterwards, James Ogoo tried a lob which the Mossley keeper only just reached. It was all Salford City now, and the inevitable fourth goal did come with ten minutes left, courtesy of a deflected shot by Gavin Salmon...

`Feed the fish and he will score' sang the Salford fans. Not very seasonal but who cares? The Ammies are back to winning ways. And victory at Radcliffe Borough on Boxing Day could see Salford City a mere four points off the play offs.

With so many players out injured or suspended, this victory showed the strength and quality of the Salford City squad. Leor Sidle made a welcome return to the side yesterday…while a visitor at the game was Lathan Forrester, the Salford City legend who has been playing at Glen Hoddle's Academy in Spain, and didn't rule out the possibility of a return to Rhodri Giggs Tangerine Army… 2012 is looking good for the Ammies…

Next game Radcliffe Borough away on Boxing Day 3pm kick off
