Salford City's season took a turn for the worse yesterday as they couldn't overcome a Wakefield side languishing third from bottom of the league. It was an early Halloween afternoon, with a horror first half that saw the Ammies 0-3 down at the interval.

After only seven seconds a Wakefield forward ghosted through the Salford defence and should have put the visitors in front but he wafted his shot over the bar. After only six minutes they got a free kick on the edge of the area and, as the Ammies stand-in keeper, Andrew Miller, was standing on the penalty spot organising his wall, the kick was taken and drifted into the empty net. 0-1.

Salford tried to hit back quickly and Danny Browne was unlucky when his header was scrambled off the line – but Salford went further behind from another free kick on the edge of the area which whizzed low past the wall, which had been pushed back about 100 yards by the ref, and into the net. 0-2.

Stunned Salford went all out to try and pull back the score before half time, Danny Browne denied by the Wakefield keeper's balls, then saving shots by Mark Battersby and Nelson Motta. But, as the interval approached, the Ammies succumbed to the sucker punch – a bit of trickery on the edge of the area, followed by a shot that put Wakefield three up. Half time 0-3.

Wakefield almost made it four as Salford pushed forward, Miller making a good save to keep the score down, and then a Moor Lane divot making an even better save, diverting the ball off the goal line which looked to be going in.

Meanwhile, down the other end, Salford were pushing hard, with Battersby going close twice. On 74minutes Danny Browne finally made the break through with a driving shot to bring it back to 1-3. And, with time running out, Gary Prescott made it 2-3 with a close range volley.

The draw looked possible but Salford just couldn't get the vital goal to end a run of ten defeats in the last eleven games. Ammies fans don't need Halloween – they're living a nightmare every match at the moment. But the faith is kept. A couple of wins and Salford will be back – starting with Cammell Laird this Tuesday night at Moor Lane - 7:45pm kick off.

"whizzed low past the wall, which had been pushed back about 100 yards by the ref,” This blatant bias by referees is a disgrace. It’s no wonder they can never win.

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
