SALFORD CITY FC KEEP UNBEATEN RUN
 

Star date: 13th October 2012

SALFORD CAN'T SQUEEZE THE WIN

Salford City 1 Warrington Town 1

Salford City kept their unbeaten run going this afternoon but couldn't quite get the win against Warrington Town that would have ensured a top four place. Steve Yarwood equalised for the Ammies late on and, despite Salford City pressure, Warrington held out.

Football royalty came to Moor Lane this afternoon in the shape of former Man City manager and Everton and Bolton Wanderers star, Peter Reid, who came to watch his nephew, Mike Reid, play for Warrington.

The former England midfield star saw an exciting match, with Warrington having the better of the first half and Salford City driving on for a late winner.

Warrington took a fortunate lead, after Ammies defender Andy Heald made a hashed clearance straight to Warrington forward, Ashley Ruane, who eased the ball passed him and struck hard and low into the corner of the net. 1-0.

Salford offered very little in reply, with winger Osebi Abadaki having to go off injured just before the interval. The second half saw Salford come more alive, with Steve Yarwood going close, but Warrington almost doubled their lead hitting the inside of the post, as the action swung from end to end.

The Ammies drew level when Nathan McDonald, on again as a super sub, hit a perfect cross for Steve Yarwood to head in, the ref judging rightly that the ball had crossed the line before Warrington defenders hacked it away.

Andy `Rubes' Robertson, returning to former club Salford in goal for Warrington, could do nothing to keep the ball out, and was again beaten by Steve Yarwood late on but the curling shot from the edge of the area this time slammed against the post.

Final score 1-1, and an enthralling match which Peter Reid seemed to enjoy. But Salford City really need to be winning games against teams lower in the league if promotion is to be a serious possibility. With the other results going against them, Salford have now slipped to 7th place

Another chance for victory comes this Tuesday with the local derby against Radcliffe Borough at Moor Lane in the Manchester Premier Cup. Kick off 7:45pm.

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
