Salford City, playing in their third strip of all blue (available at the club shop!) took Prescot Cables by storm and surprise last night in a pulsating second half that saw red cards, penalties and great goals.
After a 0-0 half time scoreline, Salford opened the scoring five minutes into the second period. Lee Neville had broken free in a clear ruin on goal, only to be tripped by the Precot goalie on the edge of the box. Goalie got red carded and Rhodri Giggs curled the free kick home from the edge of the box.
On 76 minutes it was 2-0, Billy McCartney heading in from a Lee Neville free kick. Three minutes into injury time, Prescot won and converted a penalty to pull it back to 2-1 but two minutes later, with Prescot pushing for the equaliser, Astley Mulholand broke clear and was tripped by the second goalie, who was also duly sent off. Dave Neville converted from the spot to make it 3-1 on the night.
