Now that's what you call a real player, as popular Salford City goalie, Andy `Rubes' Robertson, suspended and unable to play, joined the fan choir on the top shelf of the main stand to cheer on the team.
While Rubes was up there he saw his replacement Josh Ollerenshaw, who's on loan from Oldham Athletic, make some top saves to keep Salford City in the game. And the choir took the mick, chanting `sign him up, sign him up, sign him up…Josh, Josh, Josh, Josh…'
On the pitch, in a tight game of few chances, Salford City grabbed the points after Steve Foster had chased a through ball and looped it over the Witton keeper to put the Ammies 1-0 up a minute before half time.
Earlier in the half, however, Salford should have had a penalty when the Witton no 11 flattened Glyn Barker from behind in the area. It wasn't given, but Barker almost doubled Salford's lead in the first minute of the second period, forcing a great save from the Witton keeper as the ball looked destined to curl into the far corner of the net.
Witton pushed forward but couldn't get the equaliser and their frustration boiled over in the closing minutes as their no 10 seemed to throw a punch at Salford City's centre half, Simon Woodford. The Witton forward was sent off and with him went any chance of a draw.
So Salford City got back to winning ways, now a mere six points from the play offs, with away games at AFC Fylde and Mossley to come in the next few weeks.
