Freight Night

Wooooooo Wooooooo… Salford City chuffed and puffed but just couldn't get the winning goal against a stubborn third from bottom Harrogate Railway who remain on track for their own great escape.

Railway came into the game unbeaten in their last few games and having stuffed top of the table Lancaster last Saturday. But after just five minutes could have gone a goal down when Rhodri Giggs, clear in the area, put a shot just over the bar.

Instead it was Harrogate who took the lead after 16 minutes following signal failure in the Ammies defence. Youth team debutant, Will Mellor, put a soft header back to keeper Andy Robertson which was intercepted by a forward and slapped into the net. Thomas Tank 1 Salford 0.

It took Salford another twenty minutes to get back on track. Alex Mortimer, who'd almost been shunted into the stands by the Harrogate number 10 a few minutes earlier, flighted a perfect free kick into the Harrogate box and Rhodri Giggs rose to head home a superb equaliser. Salford 1 Tankers 1.

And just before half time Salford almost took the lead with a perfectly good goal ruled out by the referee for offside about three hours earlier, so it remained level at the crossing.

After the break it was all Salford as Railway parked a carriage in their penalty area, determined to hold onto their precious point. Salford steamed into the attack and Harrogate were nearly up the junction when Stuart Tulloch went clean through only to see the Harrogate keeper push his shot out for a corner. Despite the pressure gauge soaring, Harrogate refused to be derailed and some desperate defending saw them depart with a cheap awayday return.

Next up at Moor Lane is Warrington Town this Saturday 3pm kick off

Jonathan, Do you REALLY expect The SALFORD Star to not support a Salford team in a game of football? The clue is in the name surely? Football's a bit of fun, and the article had a humourous slant. They're not reporting a Council Meeting here! Take a chill pill man.

That really is pitiful journalism. You are supposed to be objective, can't expect anything else from your excuse for a newspaper

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.
