All Square at Surrey Street

The Hillmen and Skelmersdale played out a goalless draw at Surrey Street this afternoon.

Two teams at the foot of the table locked horns in poor conditions at Surrey Street, with Skelmersdale looking to bounce back from shipping nine against Atherton Colleries last week. Glossop came into the game on the back of their dramatic FA Cup exit on Tuesday night at the hands of City of Liverpool FC, hoping the hangover wouldn't linger.

Both teams created the odd half chance early on but by the interval Skelmersdale should've been out of sight. They missed four sitters in an entertaining but goalless first half that also saw Glossop hit the post with a Will Beesley free kick and create one or two of their own half chances as well.

Neither team dominated a bad tempered second half, with early chances limited to a speculative 30 yarder from the Hillmen's Darren McKnight and a lobbed effort from Skem's Charles Duke. Both teams appealed half heartedly at different times for a penalty for handball. Nothing doing on either occasion.

Late on, the teams resorted to long balls forward and Glossop very nearly benefited from a stoppage time own goal, but the game eventually ran its course to a fair conclusion of a point a piece after Andy Bishop had made a key defensive run and block to deny Skem any late glory of their own.

Glossop are now without a win all season, but will be pleased that 4 of their last 5 matches have ended all square on 90 minutes, showing that they are at least matching the level of opponent.

There was a well deserved and long awaited clean sheet for Russell Saunders today, whilst Darren McKnight shone for the hosts as well with controlling play and the occasional spark going forward, but it was Adam Cooper's battling performance as right back that stood out for the man of the match award.
