SALFORD CITY GARFORTH

SALFORD CITY CRASH

Salford City 1 Garforth 2

Salford City's ten game unbeaten run came to a shuddering halt yesterday as lowly Garforth escaped with the points. But where was everyone?

Not much of a match report here

Rhodri Giggs, sat high in the main stand at Moor Lane, could do nothing to save Salford City's unbeaten league record under his management. Banned from the touchline and thus, presumably, banned from playing, Rhodri had to just watch from afar as his team almost faded to defeat in one hell of a dull game.

After battering Clitheroe at the weekend, Salford were almost expected to dole out the stuffing to Garforth that would see the Ammies knocking on the door of the playoffs. And only three minutes after kick off that definitely looked to be the script as Adam Morning pounced to open the scoring for Salford City.

Ten minutes later, that script was wiped as Garforth first equalised and, later in the half, took a 2-1 lead into the break.

The second half was full of nothing. Neither side managed to produce anything of note and this dour contest ended with Salford City keeper Andy Robertson sent off, with a three match ban to follow.

Make no mistake about it, this was a shocking game one of the worst of the season but no-one was to know that before the kick off. Why, it has to be asked, were there only 145 people there to watch Salford City? Salford's the biggest city in the whole Evo-stik League; this was a bank holiday; neither United nor City were playing; the Ammies were on a  great run under Rhodri Giggsso where was everyone?

Looks like it made a difference not have Rhodri in the dugout.I think both the fans and the players had party season hangovers catching up on them. The only difference is the fans can be nesh stay at home. Will do better next year, promise.

WHERE IS THE TRIDENT SAFETY REPORT?
