After three batterings on the run by Skelmersdale (0-6), Burscough (2-6) and Ramsbottom (1-5), Salford City finally got a victory and kept a clean sheet at Garforth this afternoon. The Yorkshire side, a play-off contender last year, never threatened as the Ammies strolled to victory with room to spare.

As the wind howled off the hills, and the thick Garforth fans sang to Salford supporters `You're just a small town near Stockport', their defence was being ripped apart.

Brad Robinson stung the hands of the Garforth keeper with a wicked shot, before Nathan Taylor opened the scoring after 30 minutes. And a strange goal it was too. As the ball was slung in from the left, the Salford forward and the keeper jostled with both ending up on the ground. The ball broke loose and Taylor was first to his feet to plant it in the net. 1-0.

With the hard pitch and the wind making the ball constantly run away from players, silky football was at a premium but Salford's second goal after sixty minutes was well worked. A corner was played short to Calvin Crooks, whose cross was hit first time into the top right hand corner of the net by Nathan McDonald as he ghosted into the area. 2-0.

Salford almost extended the lead shortly after, player manager Chris Thompson fooling the Garforth keeper with a shot from outside the area that slapped against the post. The few attempts that Garforth offered in reply were dealt with easily by Salford keeper Ritchie Branagan, and Salford could have scored more - Nathan Taylor hitting a shot that curled just past the post and Vinny Mukendi forcing the keeper into a terrific save when it looked odds on to be the third goal.

Instead Salford City had to settle for the two goal winning margin but a much needed win and a much welcomed clean sheet will do. Next up on Monday, a much tougher proposition awaits, as the Ammies travel to this year's play-off contenders New Mills.

Meanwhile next Saturday, April 20th Salford City play Radcliffe Borough at home with a special Race Night afterwards plus the Player of the Season awards.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
