GARFORTH TOWN SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 13th February 2010 

Garforth Town 0 Salford City 1

MANAGERLESS SALFORD CITY TRIUMPH

Salford City, with no manager since Tuesday when Paul Wright was sacked after a home defeat to Ossett Albion, today beat Garforth Town away. Rhodri Giggs scored a penalty as the Ammies take another giant stride towards safety in the Unibond First Division North.

Salford City chairman and ex player, Darren Quick, took over the caretaker manager's job today following the dismissal of Paul Wright last Tuesday - and he might like to apply for the job on a full time basis after this convincing victory over Garforth Town.

With Andy Robertson back in goal, and new faces, Mathew Taylor at right back  and Billy McCartney at centre half, the Salford City defence had a new look following successive home defeats against rock bottom Rossendale and third bottom Ossett Town in the last week.

They certainly rode their luck in the first half as Taylor limped off after 15 minutes, and Garforth swept forward, hitting the inside of the post five minutes later. Indeed, with Salford constantly getting caught offside, Garforth had the best of a scrappy first half which ended goalless.

The second half was a different proposition and Salford took the lead after 15 minutes, Rhodri Giggs sweeping in a penalty after Ashley Mulholland was barged over in the box.

Garforth had little in reply, apart from a point blank miss from their sub, and, with 15 minutes to go, Giggs found himself clean through, as a Garforth player lay prone near the centre circle, only to see his shot bounce off the crossbar. Salford could have doubled the lead a little later when a Giggs header from a Craig Mahon cross was saved spectacularly by the Garforth keeper.

It ended 1-0 to Salford and, while not as dramatic as the 5-2 scoreline here last season which ushered the Great Escape, is enough to see the Ammies draw level with Garforth in the league.

A win in Tuesday night's home game against Wakefield should see Salford City climb well out of the danger zone…

Tuesday 16th February 7:45pm Salford City v Wakefield at Moor Lane, Kersal. Admission £7/£3
