SALFORD CITY WIRED OUT

Warrington Town 4 Salford City 2

SALFORD CITY'S NINTH KEEPER OF THE SEASON FAILS TO KEEP OUT WARRINGTON

Salford City have used an incredible nine goalkeepers, including three outfield players, this season, and we're only just over half way through the fixtures. The latest hopeful, Danny Jackson, failed to keep out Warrington Town, who had just four efforts on target – and scored four goals…

How the hell did Salford City lose this one? Yes, the referee was useless, failing to halt Warrington's endless array of niggling fouls. And, yes, the pitch was garbage, making it hard for Salford to play the usual silky passing game. But, hey, 4-2 just wasn't the right result.

First ex Wires favourite Gavin Salmon outjumped the Warrington keeper and followed up with a looping shot that was destined for the net before a defender nodded it off the line. Later, `The Fish' was hauled down when he would have been clean through on goal. And Scott Metcalfe came close after dazzling three defenders and unleashing a shot that whistled past the post…Meanwhile, James Ogoo was knocked almost to heaven by the onrushing keeper near the edge of the box as he was about to score…

…It was all Salford, with Warrington Town playing their usual hoof and hope game. And then the hope paid off. A bit of a mix up in the Salford six yard box saw a Warrington shot hit a post and bounce in, despite the frantic efforts of Alex Mortimer on the goal line. 1-0.

Salford fans were just getting over their disbelief when a high Warrington cross was nodded back across goal and another forward headed in for a second, Stoke City style score. 2-0.

With the game heading to half time Salford City, remarkably got back on terms, with two goals in a minute. First Gavin Salmon flicked in with the outside of his foot from a loose ball in the six yard area, then Adam Morning scored a screamer, going past two defenders before unleashing a rocket shot into the bottom right hand corner of the net.2-2.

The comeback had happened and surely the second half was Salford's? Er, er, er…well it certainly should have been. Gavin Salmon, tormenting his former club, had a header saved from a wicked Adam Morning cross. Then a deflected Morning shot was spooned out for a corner by the keeper. And then, er, Warrington scored again, with Salford's ninth keeper of the season rooted to the spot as a hopeful hoof landed in the area, allowing a striker to, well, strike the third goal. Warrington finished the game off when an attacker turned the Salford defence and slapped in the fourth. A shocking result courtesy of the dire Wires, as Salford's New Year slump continues.

Next up is another hoof and hope team – Cli-i-i-the-e-e-e- r-e-e-e-w this Saturday at Moor Lane, kick off 3pm
