SALFORD HALIFAX TOWN
 

Star date: 16th September 2009

HALIFAX SHAYED IT

Salford City 0 AFC Halifax Town 3

There's obviously nowt better to do in Halifax than come for a night out in Salford, as hundreds and hundreds of Shaymen descended on Moor Lane on a Tuesday night to see their top of the table team take on the bottom placed Ammies…

`We're supposed to be at home…We're sup-po-o-o-s-s-s-e-d-d to be at home…'

There was hardly space for the regular hundred City supporters as around 500 Halifax fans came expecting to see a massacre at Moor Lane. Salford City - without a win in the league all season -  against unbeaten, top of the table, proper rich, former proper league team Halifax Town. And after half an hour it looked like that would be the case, as Salford succumbed to the Big Match atmosphere and Halifax steamed into a three goal lead, courtesy of two top shots from the edge of the area and a header off a corner.

City, unfortunately, just couldn't live with the Man United of the nether leagues, and before half time we were already singing our Great Escape theme tune…Indeed, the teams trod off at the interval to the strains of `Easy…Easy' from the Shaymen…

But they were to regret it in the second half as Salford got back into the game and should have pulled one back after Giggs rolled an inviting cross to ex Halifax striker Paul Gedham but he hit the chance just wide. Had that gone in it might have been a different story. But it didn't and it wasn't.

As the game wore on the greedy Halifax fans started to moan about their team's lack of massacre instinct. They needed 4-0 to go top of the table. But they only got 3-0. Shaym. Moral victory to Salford?  And we outsung the Halifax hordes…

Next stop: Mossley away on Saturday…the hills are alive with the sound of Salford?
