JOINT-MANAGER Anthony Johnson believes that Salford City can continue to improve after a sixth consecutive league win against North Ferriby United.

The Ammies maintained their seven point lead at the top of the National League North with a 4-0 victory over The Villagers at The Peninsula Stadium, with all four goals coming from Jack Redshaw in the second half.

A quick start from the hosts saw Carl Piergianni hit the post within a minute as The Ammies dominated possession and chances, all to no avail.

It wasn’t until the 57th minute when Salford eventually broke through Ferriby’s back line, at which point the gates opened as Redshaw went on to score four.

However Johnson feels there is scope for the league leaders to be better still:

“We want to keep improving, that’s the main thing we want to do, we want to keep improving and we honestly believe that we can get a lot better than what we’re showing at the minute.

“That’s a scary thought for us in a good way, that if we keep improving where we could end up.”


The Ammies have gone into half time goalless in three of the last four matches, despite having numerous chances in the first half.

While Johnson says that is a concern, he also says that Salford deserved the win and that it wasn’t a ‘flattering’ scoreline:

“We had words at half time, I know we created a few chances in the first half but we felt like we were lacking in intensity.

“That’s become a bit of a pattern that over the last few games, coming in and having words at half time then going back out and improving in the second half. 

“In fairness with the chances that we’ve created throughout the game we’ve definitely deserved to win the game, and win it by the scoreline we did. 

“I don’t believe it flattered us, I thought North Ferriby worked really hard and in the first half they didn’t look like a side that are rooted to the bottom.

“But second half I thought we went through the gears a little bit, and got a couple of great goals by Jack. 

“To get four in any game is a fantastic achievement so yeah, I’m happy.”
