A ONE - NIL THRASHING FOR OSSETT

Salford City got back to winning ways with a total pummelling of Ossett Albion. But the only goal of the game came from a penalty coolly converted by Steve Foster in the second half.

Revenge is sweet. So sweet you can taste the sugar icing of the humble pie that Ossett Albion will be chewing today. The team from the Yorkshire sticks - whose cows make more noise than their fans - had already put ten goals past Salford City this season: six in the league and four in the FA Trophy.

Oh how sweet is revenge? As sweet as Steve Foster's right foot which swept home the penalty in the second half to waft Salford City to victory.

For virtually the whole game Salford City shredded Albion with swift passing attacks down the wings and through the centre, only for the moves to be broken up by the Ossett ogres at the back, getting a hoof to the ball at the last minute, or getting their mugs in the way of crosses.

When Salford did get through in the first half they were denied two clear cut penalties, first when Shaun Roscoe almost had the shirt pulled off his back, and, secondly, when Rhodri Giggs was blatantly tripped in the area. The `ref' waved play on both times.

And so the pattern of Salford's dominance continued in the second half. Steve Foster flashed a header just past the post, Rhodri Giggs was foiled by the Ossett keeper from close range, and Simon Woodford hit the post from an Adam Morning cross.

But, with time running out for the Ammies, another Adam Morning cross was blocked in the area by the raised arm of an Ossett defender, and Steve Foster smacked home the winner from the spot. Justice was done.

`How did you put ten past us?' sang the Salford fans. But revenge was sweet. Very sweet. Indeed, it should have been ten to Salford. But a 1-0 victory will do, after two disappointing defeats in a row. Those cows will now be fearing relegation for Ossett – as well as the pack of meat half time raffle prize at their ground.

Next up on Tuesday night at Moor Lane is high flying Warrington Town. Kick off 7:45pm

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
