SALFORD CITY FLATTEN BAMBER BRIDGE
 

Star date: 2nd September 2012

SUPER SIZZLING SOARAWAY SALFORD CITY WIN

Bamber Bridge 1 Salford City 2

Salford City got their first league win of the season, following the 5-1 destruction of Hemsworth Miners in the FA Cup last week. Wearing their lucky new blue away kit the Ammies rolled over Bamber Bridge in a second half that could have seen four or five goals for the rampant forwards.

Salford City's league campaign is now well under way, as the Ammies breezed to a comfortable victory over Bamber Bridge, with Osebi Abadaki and Steve Yarwood wicked on the wings. 

A hesitant first half saw Bamber take the lead in the 25th minute, a forward scrambling the ball in the net at the far post after Salford keeper Danny Taberner could only parry a shot. This came amidst Bamber's most dangerous period, when crosses rained in and twice the Ammies were rescued by clearing headers off the line.

But Salford hit back in the 35th minute. Rob Kinsella had a looping header touched over the bar by the Bridge keeper, and from the following corner Adrian Bellamy's nod rebounded off a defender's head and into the net for a superb own goal. Half time 1-1

Bamber Bridge just didn't show up for the second half, apart from their studs. After dominating the opening period, Salford took the lead. A punt forward had the Bamber defenders and goalie hesitating while wing ace Osebi Abadaki nipped in to make it 2-1.

The flying number 7 was a whisker short of making it 3-1 moments later when he rounded three defenders to unleash a shot that just clipped the post, in what would have been another wonder goal for Ossie.

By now, the ragged Bambers were being outplayed, with the Ammies quicker to every ball, and a two footed tackle on Nathan McDonald saw the Bamber centre half shown a straight red card. From then on Salford looked more than comfortable and, while Rob Kinsella had a couple of half chances to increase the lead, the score remained 2-1.

At the end, a comfortable win by the Ammies to make the season's tally drawn one, lost one, won one, with Goole FC to come on Tuesday night at Moor Lane. It's looking good for Salford City.
