Pipped in a game ruined by the gale

2 down on 48 minutes we drew level but conceded again in game we deserved to win but again missed several good chance and conceded 2 poor goals

For the visit of Cleator Moor Celtic who has made a great start to the season strikers Jamie Tumilty , Danny Maddison and Luke Naylor are missing but Paul Moss, Ash Clark, Sam Cook and Dean Cope returned

A downfield gale was set to ruining the game as we faced it first and Elliot Coils made a good early save then another straight forward one as Matty Gardner was sent clear but he took an extra touch and lost a good chance as the keeper made a close range block from Andy Blackburn the visitors were over hitting ball and didnt create any clear chance another goalmouth scramble saw the ball rebound off the visitors bar as we were showing more threat into the gale on 41 minutes the visitors hit post and a minute later went ahead a cross from the left bounced up for Johnson to score.
Dean Cope replaced the injured Hammond at the break but we got caught cold 3 minutes into in the second half a break down the right aw Close score on 58 minutes s a free-kick 30 yards out saw COOK effort fly past the keeper he then made good saves from Cook and Gardner the later then broke into the box but again the keeper got fingers to it when a goal looked on from Jones corner after a scramble COPE fired home on 75 minutes Gardner then had 2 good chances in the 6 yard box and looked certain to score but both time seemed to lose his footing.
On 81 minutess we were caught out down the left and from the cross Birdsall had a clear header for 6 yards that seemed to fly past Coils we through every body forward as Clark off the bench went close all to no avail again missed chances and conceding poor goals proved crucial.
Cleator chairman Martin Mahone said "we certinly got out of jailed there".
