Woodley Sports 2 Salford City 3

SUPER SALFORD CITY STORM UP TO EIGHTH

Rhodri Giggs made it five league wins in a row since he took over the manager's job with a storming win at Woodley Sports that lifts Salford City into eighth spot in the Evo-Stik First Division North.

A net blistering first half saw the Ammies hit three goals in less than 10 minutes as Steve Foster and new star Cayne Hanley tore Woodley apart.

THE FOZZY AND HANLEY SHOW

For 12 sizzling minutes in the first half of this match Salford City were totally unstoppable, producing their best football of the season to destroy Woodley Sports on their supposedly advantageous plastic pitch.

First Cayne Hanley turned the Woodley defence inside out to put Steve Foster through, only for his shot to thwack off the inside of the post. Seven minutes later, Hanley received the ball himself just outside the penalty area and hit a sweet lob over the Woodley 'keeper to open the scoring with a total wonder goal.

Salford fans were still savouring that superb shot when Leor Sidle flew down the right wing and put in a smart cross which Steve Foster met and dinked over the sprawling goalie to score his millionth goal of the season.

...And Salford fans were still savouring that goal when Sidle put in another cross which Hanley drilled in to make it 3-0.

...And Salford fans were still savouring that superb strike when, er, Woodley went down the other end and knocked in a goal of their own just before half time to bring it back to 3-1.

By this time Salford could easily have been five up, with the Fozzy shot that hit the woodwork and centre half, Simon Woodford, narrowly failing to connect with a header. Surely the flood gates would open in the second half?

They very nearly did, the Woodley keeper making a great diving save at his left hand post to deny Steve Foster, and Woodford again just failing to divert in a great cross from Adam Morning, who played superbly well on his return to Salford. 

As the game wore on and Hanley went off injured, Woodley came back into the game without threatening at all, until the referee awarded them a penalty right at the end. It was duly converted to give Woodley a more respectable scoreline. In truth Salford could have run up a cricket score.

Still, it's five league wins in a row for Salford City and the play off places are in sight for Rhodri Giggs' tangerine army - with Hanley and Fozzy firing on all cylinders, to the point where Giggs himself can't get back into the starting line up!

This was a top, top performance with some incredible football played in that first half. Ooooh the excitement Ė like, who needs FC United and their FA Cup run? Salford City is the place to be!

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
