Salford City, with four players missing through injury, suspension and unavailability, couldn't overcome Cammell Laird in the FA Cup yesterday. The Ammies, undefeated in the league so far this season, were unable to carry that form into the Cup, and the Cammells, beaten play off finalists last season, ran out worthy winners.
The Cammells scored first in the 22nd minute from a well taken free kick from outside the area, and doubled the score with a header from a corner early in the second half. It could have been a lot worse but Ammies keeper, Kieran O'Boyle, put in a wonder show to keep the score down with four superb diving saves from shots and headers.
In return Salford offered almost nothing, bar a chance put wide by Aaron Swift in the first half and an Otis Gorman header in the second half.
So Salford City go out of the FA Cup for another year – and can now concentrate on the league and that unbeaten run…
Next home game v Padiham Saturday September 7th Moor Lane 3pm
