Lancaster City v Mossley

... keeping it brief ... pictures at

Lancaster City 2 Mossley 1

Another late show - but not enough - deserved a draw I feel - for large periods of the game Lancaster did not look like a team gunning for promotion, and we more than held our own. After all the hard work to get back on terms, the late winner from Farrell was a sickener - credit the guy with a well-placed shot however.

Plenty of plusses from the game though - if that's the top of the table, we're a good team (remember we gave Halifax a good run for their money as well - twice !). Have to say those faint play-off hopes have probably been extinguished with defeats at Chorley and Lancaster - although ... who knows ... a top eight finish would be extremely respectable given the events of this season. A note on yesterday's attendance - 168 - not really enough to provide for a team in the Unibond Premier I feel - whether the "student holiday" made a difference I don't know - usual excellent turnout from the Mossley faithful mind ... and a fairly jolly day out on the train/rail replacement bus - usual watering holes visited - "The Pub" and the "John O'Gaunt" (a strangely unimpressive beer selection at the latter mind) ! Maybe if Lancaster could get some of those "*rsechair football fans" out of the Litton Tree (keg - eek !) it might help - that big dollop of dosh for Jordan Connerton won't go that far over a season ...

Next stop Hurst Cross on Tuesday to take on another team "up there" as in Skelmersdale United - and don't forget, all the gate money is going straight to Ashton United for their "Marcus Hallows Appeal Fund" - so get along if you can.

Now - what am I feeding Mrs Smiffy tonight after her "foreign travels" ... supermarket trip calls ...
