WARRINGTON TOWN SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 25th April 2011

Warrington Town 1 Salford City 2

SALFORD NOW UNDEFEATED IN TEN!

Salford City extended their unbeaten run to ten games with vistory over Warrington Town, to kind of avenge Salford City Reds 60-0 defeat by Warrington Wolves the other day.

As the Ammies move up into tenth place in the Evo-Stik Division One North, fans are wondering what might have been had there not been that horrid winter break.

Match report and photos here…

So it was onto that netherworld of roundabout city Warrington for Salford's final away game of the season. Salford Cityunbeaten in nine games and in 11th place. Warrington Town - sixth in the league, just outside the playoffs.

For Salford City it was a revenge mission, Warrington Wolves rugby league team having stuffed Salford City Reds 60-0 just a few days ago*. For Warrington it was about taking a crumb of comfort as the whole town, it seemed, were at the rugby stadium hoping the Wolves topped the Championship.

In the event, it was rather easy for Salford, going two up after just half an hour. First Mark Ayres headed in superbly from a corner to open the scoring, then Jack Redshaw, latching on to an awful Warrington throw-in which bounced over the keeper's head, scrambled in the second while he was being dragged to the floor by the unfortunate goalie.

2-0 and Salford looked to be cruising to victory. But three minutes after Redshaw's goal, Mark Ayres whipped the feet of a Warrington attacker and Chris Thompson pulled a goal back from the penalty spot. Half time: 2-1.

The second half saw Salford fans with a roof on the terrace behind the goal and as the chanting volume turned up the team responded, first Jack Redshaw whistling a shot just past the post, and then Redshaw again outpacing the Warrington defence, nipping inside the box and having his final shot only saved by the keeper's legs.

Warrington responded with a couple of shots that hit the corner flag and a few passing planes. But, much as their nasty midfielders tried to wind Salford players up, the ploy didn't work and Salford finished with eleven players on the field and the revenge victory their efforts truly deserved.

If only the season could start now Salford City would be looking at promotion with bells on - Gareth Thomas bang on biting form, Matty Cross ruling at the back and Jack Redshaw scaring the life out of defences up front.

What a shame there's only one game left – promotion chasing Chorley at Moor Lane this Friday 29th April kick off 3pm. If Salford City win this, the tenth place they hold now would be secure and would guarantee the highest ever finish in the club's history.

* OK was it wasn't quite 60-0 to Salford but a 2-1 victory will do!

Hello my Salford City friends. This is a load of rubbish. Most of our shots were on target, and your pensioner in defence (No 6) was kicking our legs off for fun, and should have been off. Your shots hit the Corner flags, not ours, and you are lucky not to have been relegated this season. Oh, and 60-0. Owned.
