SALFORD CITY FC BACK TO WINNING WAYS
 

Star date: 25th November 2012

Salford City 2 Ossett Albion 0

TWO OWN GOALS SEE OSSETT UNDONE

Salford City got back to winning ways yesterday, courtesy of two own goals by Ossett defenders. Indeed, these were the only Ammies shots on goal during the whole game as Lady Luck flashed her knickers in the Moor Lane drizzle.

Oh dear. Every time an Ossett Albion defender got the ball the cries of derision went up from the Ammies supporters… `Sh-o-o-o-o-ot!'…`Sh-o-o-o-o-ot!'

In reality they were Salford City's best strikers, netting two own goals in the first half to set up a first victory in five games for a team that only a few weeks ago was in a play off place

The Ossett rot set in after only four minutes, when Salford's new signing Chris Thompson did brilliantly on the left wing to get to the byline and put it a low hard cross that the hapless defender could only turn into his own net. 1-0.

After 36 minutes a hopeful punt into the area was met by an Ossett boot under no pressure and directed into the net again to make it 2-0.

In between, Salford City were playing the better football, raiding down the wings, putting decent moves together without any end product. Ossett players, meanwhile, just seemed completely shellshocked.

In the second rain drenched half, Albion pulled themselves together to try and get back into the game – and were helped by the referee, who sent off Ammies right back, Rees Welsh, for a second yellow card. For what, no-one seemed to know.

From then on, Ossett were on the attack but, unlike their defenders, the strikers had forgotten how to score, missing a hatful of chances, while Salford didn't manage a meaningful shot on goal.

Even with usual clown referee – and a linesman who lost his flag and was waving a bare stick for a few hilarious minutes – Salford managed to hold on for the win.

After an incredibly flukey midweek loss to unbeaten Skelmersdale - when, after being 2-0 up, the Ammies lost 3-2 to a keeper's clearance that hit a Skem striker's shoulder and ricocheted in the net – it was good to see Lady Luck smile on Moor Lane for a change

Hopes are now high for another charge up the league. Final score 2-0.
