SALFORD CITY LAST GASP GOAL EARNS CAMMELL DRAW
 

Star date: 9th February 2013

SUPER SALFORD COME FROM TWO GOALS DOWN IN LATE LATE SHOW

Salford City 2 Cammell Laird 2

An injury time header by Danny White earned a deserved point for Salford City as the tangerines battled back from two goals down. The Cammells had hit two goals in two mad minutes to go in front before the interval before a strike from Nathan Taylor had got the Ammies back into the game.

Not much was really happening in this match until the twentieth minute when the Salford City defence stopped dead, waiting for an offside flag that didn't come as the Cammell's winger swept the ball across the area. A forward waiting unmarked, gleefully tucked the ball home to make it 0-1.

Two minutes later it was almost a repeat performance, as the Ammies defence parted like the Red Sea to let in another unmarked forward, who picked his spot to make it 0-2.

It was two mad minutes but it jolted Salford into action. Nathan McDonald went close with a flying overhead scissor kick that flew past the post, and Phil McGrath forced an acrobatic save from the Cammell's keeper, who fingertipped his powerful shot over the bar. It kept the half time score to Salford City 0 Cammell Laird 2.

The second half saw the Cammells wasting every second they could to get to the full time whistle…every challenge by a Salford player found them howling and rolling around on the floor like freshly shot hyenas. Meanwhile, the Ammies' Ossie Abadaki was tormenting the Cammell's defence, drawing free kicks every time he danced passed them.

Eventually Salford pressure brought the goal, as Nathan Taylor, put through by Nathan McDonald, held off a challenge and whalloped the ball into the corner of the net. 1-2.

The Cammells were now in time wasting overdrive, taking an age to decide throw-ins, calling for physio every time they fell over, and hoofing the ball as far out of play as they could. The tactic almost paid off. But in the third minute of injury time the ball was crossed into a pack of players and Danny White met it to head the equaliser. 2-2.

But for those two mad minutes Salford would probably have secured the victory – yet a draw felt good, given the timing.

Next up at Moor Lane is the Manchester Premier Cup Semi Final on Tuesday 12th Feb, 7:45pm, when Salford City take on Blue Square Conference giants, Droylsden for a place in the Final. Can Salford be kings of Manchester?

I just love the phrase "like freshly shot hyenas". Also applicable could have been that they went down "as quickly and dramatically like the Titanic".

AS HOMELESS SALFORD MAN DIES UNCLE ASKS WHY IT’S NOT BEING REPORTED

'FOR ME, IT'S ALL BEING COVERED UP...'

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.
