The Rhodri Giggs magic worked again today as Salford City stuffed Leigh Genesis on their own sloping pitch to notch up a second win in a week, with seven goals scored and none against.

Supporters chanted `Going upGoing upGoing up' and `It's just like watching Brazil' as Salford turned on the style with a second half finale that saw two classy goals, the first a superb header by Martyn Andrews from a Giggs corner, and the second a sweet volley from Steve Foster.

It wasn't all plain sailing though. In the first half, Salford were thankful to keeper Andy Robertson for making two flying saves, and to the referee for ruling out a Leigh goal for a push.

The referee was again to make his mark when correctly sending off the Leigh 'keeper for a blatant block on Steve Foster just outside the area. With no substitute goalie, the Leigh number 11 went in net and straight away made three important saves as the first half ended 0-0.

The second period was only five minutes old when Steve Foster again charged through on goal only to be tripped, this time in the area. His penalty sent the sub keeper the wrong way to give The Ammies the lead.

Martyn Andrews doubled the lead with a top header from a Rhodri Giggs corner and Steve Foster, again through on goal, could have made it three but his shot hit the post. By this time the referee had gone off injured and play had been held up for ten minutes as a Leigh official squeezed himself into a linesman's outfit, while the liner took over from the ref.

Steve Foster rounded off the score with a beautifully hit volley from just inside the area as the clock showed 5:10pm. But still there was time for Salford City to mount more attacks against the tiring ten men of Leigh but a fourth goal just wouldn't come.

Less than a week into Rhodri Giggs management, Durham City have been stuffed 4-0 and Leigh Genesis stuffed 3-0. It's all looking good for Rhodri but the real test will come when big spending AFC Fylde come to Moor Lane on Saturday 16th October.
