Cambridge City move another point clear of bottom two with draw on the road at Walsall Wood
Cambridge City moved another point clear of the Pitching In Northern Premier League Midlands Division relegation zone thanks to Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Walsall Wood.
While the Lilywhites will feel that they created enough chances to win the contest in the west Midlands, the result has nevertheless opened up a six-point gap to the bottom two ahead of a big encounter next weekend.
City made a bright start against Walsall and they were rewarded in the 22nd minute with the opening goal. Mikey Davis’ right-wing corner was cleared straight back to him and after beating one challenge, he fired in from the edge of the box.
However, the hosts managed to restore parity before the break when Charlie Manners’ close-range effort squirmed in.
During the second half the likes of Will Jones, Ed Tassell, Stefan Broccoli, George Scales and Davis all went close to regaining the lead for the visitors, but it was not to be.
On Saturday, Robbie Nightingale’s men will travel to face a Rugby Town side that occupy the first of two relegation spots. A win for City in Warwickshire would move them nine points clear of their opponents in what is a crucial juncture in the season.
