RUSTY SALFORD REMAIN UNDEFEATED

It's been almost a month since Salford City last played but tonight the team remains undefeated for nine league games after a humdrum home draw with Woodley…

Salford City 1 Woodley Sports 1

Yep, we've all been wetting our pants, waiting almost a month for this – yes, you guessed it. The appearance of the biggest flag in non-league football…

At half time, a huge tangerine and black flag was unfurled which covered half the main stand. Fantastic! Just need some more fans to pass the billowing banner over their heads a la Barcelona and Real Madrid. Unfortunately at Moor Lane it just sat there, limp but loved, until it was folded up and put back in its bag. A bit like the team really.

That Salford City were rusty would be a kind way of describing this game that saw the Ammies in action for the first time in almost a month, and missing four or five players through suspension and injury.

First half highlights, and only highlights, on a pitch rutted by the recent weather, were an Andy Robertson save from Woodley, and a Woodley keeper's save from a Matty Cross free kick. Half time: 0-0.

The second half livened up a bit and saw a Darren Hockenhall chip spectacularly pushed over the bar by the Woodley goalie. Late on, Woodley took the lead via an undisputed penalty, but Adam Morning's flicked header equalised in the 76th minute. In the final minute, Salford City could even have snatched the victory when Salford sub, Shaun Roscoe, diverted a cross goalwards only for the Woodley keeper to save one handed to preserve the draw.

So, full time, 1-1, and on to Trafford next Saturday before a home match against Warrington Town on Monday 27th December (3pm kick off). Perhaps there'll be 50,000 supporters at Moor Lane to help billow our new enormous flag…
