Star date: 14th October 2009 

FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round
Salford City 2 Blyth Spartans 2

Another huge Moor Lane crowd saw never-say-die Salford City still in the cup after a battling display worried top FA Cup giant killers Blyth Spartans. It all goes to a replay next Tuesday night in Blyth…

With five minutes left in this FA Cup battle Salford City supporters were begging for an Ammies goal to finish it off because… "We don't want to go to Blyth…Weeeee  don't  wa-ant to go to Blyyyyyyyth…"

Thought it was somewhere in Yorkshire but it's way past Newcastle. On a Tuesday night. Still, Salford City are still in with a great chance after looking the better side for long periods against a team a full two leagues above us which got in the 3rd Round proper of the FA Cup last year.

Everything of any note happened in a pulsating first half that saw Blyth take the lead after a few minutes, and Salford equalise a couple of minutes later, Ian Fitzpatrick poking in after some well dodgy Blyth goalkeeping in the six yard box.

Blyth were a constant pain every time they attacked down the right hand side and after 25 minutes took the lead again. Rhodri Giggs nearly equalised with a brilliant header but this time the Blyth keeper made amends and acrobatically tipped the ball over the bar. Just before half time, Giggs made it 2-2 after more disarray in the Blyth box. 

By the second half both teams had worked each other out, Salford stemming the right wing attacks and Blyth blotting out the nippy Salford forwards. After Giggs had gone off injured Lathan Forrester made his first appearance of the season as sub but couldn't quite weave his magic against a well organised Blyth defence.

So it's everyone back to Blyth next Tuesday for the right to meet Telford in the final qualifying round. But don't write off Salford City. This team is full of surprises…
