RHODRI GIGGS TANGERINE ARMY REMAIN UNDEFEATED

Wow! To see the famous Skelmersdale roundabouts is an awesome sight. Huge forest filled grass circles that send your car into orbit on the outskirts of nowhere. Surely one of the wonders of the modern world. A bit like Salford City…

Taken apart and thrashed 5-0 at home in the league by Skem only five weeks ago, since then Salford City have been transformed and could easily have got total revenge last night in a thrilling game that saw the Ammies two goals up at one point.

After 24 minutes, Steve Foster converted an Adam Morning cross to open the scoring, and ten minutes later Jordan Goodeve smacked home a chance created by a mess in the Skem defence to double the score. 2-0 up and it looked like becoming one of those winter wonderland nights. But Skem hit back just before half time with a far post cross headed in to make it 2-1 at the break.

The second half opened with a Skem defender hacking a Steve Foster shot off the line but 15 minutes later the `don't call us scousers' drew level after a mix up in the Salford defence. 2-2 and, as Skem went looking for a winner, Steve Foster, on the break, almost put the Ammies back in the lead but his shot was saved spectacularly by the Skem 'keeper.

It was left to Salford City 'keeper, Andy Roberston, to rescue a point for the Ammies with a brilliant save, pushing a point blank shot onto the post in the final few minutes.

This was a fantastic point for Salford City. Skelmersdale are easily the best team Salford have played at home all season. To go to their ground and get a point shows how far the team has come under the Rhodri Giggs five week revolution.

What is even more amazing is how the team and fans managed to find Skem's ground off all those massive roundabouts. The rumour is that Skelmersdale's famous old sixties and seventies FA Cup giant killing teams are still out there somewhere in the roundabouts slaying real giants.

Debbie (see below)...It was too scary to get out of the car - we would never have been seen again. Those old Skem players must surely have gone feral by now!!!
