ANCHORS GRIND IT OUT AGAINST THE STEELMEN

And so the fantastic winning run continues and the Anchors inch ever closer to securing a promotion spot. Yesterday’s game was in danger of becoming a farce in the opening 20 minutes but credit to both sides as they managed to produce a match full of quality and as you would expect from two good footballing teams, they both played better against the wind than with it. First half goals from Franks and Hayes looked like setting up a comfortable victory for the Anchors but an early response in the second-half from the Steelmen gave them renewed vigour and they carved out several good chances only to find out a couple of the reasons Stockton are where they are, excellent defending and a superb goalkeeper.

Michael Dunwell restored skipper Nicholson to the side at the expense of Max Craggs in this crucial fixture played in front of a noisy good natured crowd on a bitterly cold windswept day.
