SALFORD CITY STALLED
 

Salford City 1 Lancaster City 2

Last night at Moor Lane the Great Escape was all Lancaster's as they somehow smuggled the points out of Salford against all logic and odds. Lancs were totally tortured by Jody Banim's man of the match performance. Full of swerves, flicks and tricks, by the end Salford's no 9 had three quaking defenders near him every time he got the ball.

However, while Salford has a new hero, we ain't got any bleedin' points on the board yet…

So, to a balmy, barmy evening at Moor Lane for the first home game of the season. And we're still in the bar finishing a pint of Guinness when, through the window, we see Salford take the lead, as the ball rebounds off the Lancaster post and Gary Sampson knocks it in. Good things might come to those who wait but they just might miss all the goals too…

Out in the late summer air, the only minor irritants are the pesky midges and the constantly moaning Lancaster defenders, as Salford dominate the half. Banim's full of running, Giggs is looking lively and Lancaster's best effort is a vain penalty claim when an attacker falls over in the Salford box. Half time: 1-0 Salford.

Er, we're still in the bar finishing a pint of Guinness when, through the window, we see Lancaster equalise. Good things might come to those who wait but they just might miss all the goals too…

Out on the right touchline, Banim is absolutely overrunning the moaning Lancaster defenders, and one superb dribble and cross sets up Gary Sampson, stood virtually on the penalty spot with time and the whole goal to aim at. His shot flies over the bar in a carbon copy repeat of his effort earlier in the half. 

Lancaster gallop down the other end and grab the lead when one of their giants gets his head to a corner. That's two efforts on target and two goals.

As the match draws to its close Salford pile on the pressure with everything positive coming via Jody Banim, whose cross in the last minute is met by Steve Moores at the far post. His header squirms just wide. And Salford have lost the first home game of the season.

At Moor Lane, swigging pints of Guinness, good things didn't always come to those who wait. But from now on, it's going to be a game of two halves…

Enjoyable and lively report, and I wouldn't disagree with much, though if you'd been at the Salford end you'd have realised that the home defenders don't need any lessons in the art of moaning: perhaps it's what defenders do best! The Salford keeper's language , though, was beyond a joke: every sentence began with the F-word which could have been heard all the way to Lancaster.Notice we took off our chief giant to give you a chance, but a phrase about cows'backsides and banjos comes to mind.You will play worse than that and win, though, and lively wing play will serve you well.Best wishes...when not playing us!

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

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.
