Ressies take a point

But it could have been 3

Our reserves welcome Saltney Town to Casty this afternoon, with both teams struggling at the wrong end of the table and not yet played each other, it was crucial to get something out of the game.

Matty Rushforth was home for a week, so he returned after a 3 month absence, and was partnered by Steve Jones in central defence.
Josh Price came in up front to try to improve our dreadful goalscoring problems.

But Saltney looked the brighter from the start, and their efforts were rewarded on 34 minutes when they were awarded a penalty which was
duly converted.

They went close to extending their lead before half time, and we were grateful to be still in the game after a few narrow escapes. HT 0-1

Ryan Ankers joined the game second half at the expense of young Jordan Jackson in RM, but the game continued in the same vein, before we decided to move Phil Davies to LM, and this had a good effect on the team as we started to finally create chances. And we got our equaliser on 76 minutes after good work down the left, Ben Bailey fed Phil Davies and he fired home between keeper and post fro m a narrow angle.

The game was now turned on its head as we continued to dominate, and 3 imnutes from time Ben Bailey broke clean through and looked
certain to score, however the ball hit a bobble and Ben fired well over with just the keeper to beat. Right on time Ben had a choice to feed Phil Davies, but chose the option passing to Ryan Ankers, who was brought down right on the edge of the box. Phil Davies free kick was
deflected by the wall just wide of the right post.

So we missed 2 great chances to win the game, but we have to say Saltney deserved their point because they dominated the game for
70 minutes.

Ben Bailey looked lively today, but Man of the Match goes to Matty Rushforth, it's a pity we dont get to use him more often.
