MOANING MOSSLEY END SALFORD RUN

Salford City 0 Mossley 2

Salford City's unbeaten run came to an end this afternoon against top of the table Mossley. Two efforts on target, two goals and lots of moaning at officials was enough to secure the victory. But the Ammies gave the hill people one hell of a fright, particularly in the first half.

Unbeaten Mossley maintained their position at the top of the league with a hard fought victory over Salford City.

Salford completely dominated the opening period, with waves of attacks floundering in the last third of the pitch. The team just couldn't turn dominance in to clear cut chances, with the Mossley defence blocking shots and hoofing the ball into tree Z.

Then about half way through the half the Lillywhites took the lead. Ammies defender Andy Heald wasn't able to connect with a long ball, the Mossley winger striding round the back of him, and putting in a low cross from which the centre forward curled the ball into the right hand corner of the net. 0-1.

Undeserved, fortuitous and callous it might have been but, after Mossley had hit the post with an angled shot from two yards, Salford came straight back into the game, Osebi Abadaki forcing the keeper into a smart save, and Jameel Ible, on as sub, having a header saved from a corner. But the equaliser just wouldn't come for Salford. Half time 0-1

The second half was again dominated by the Ammies but creative flowing moves floundered on poor finishing. Instead, Mossley, moaning and contesting every decision and taking an age to take throw-ins and free kicks, doubled their lead with a header from a corner. 0-2 and the spark seemed to go out of Salford, even though the team battled hard to rescue something from the game. Mossley had just the two efforts on target and scored two goals.

The Ammies' record still reads only two league defeats all season. And next up this Tuesday night at Moor Lane is second in the league Clitheroe. A must win for Salford City if promotion is the goal.

PROTEST AT THE LOWRY AS STUDENTS GET DEGREES

Yesterday, as students received their degrees at The Lowry, Professor James Newell and UCU supporters were outside raising awareness of how the University of Salford sacked him, after 27 years service, for basically failing to chase money in what has become a national cause against the marketisation of education.

Almost 3,500 people have signed a petition calling for Professor Newell's reinstatement, as he told the Salford Star that marketisation "is the essential issue that underlies the exorbitant fees that students have to pay..."
