Brandon Thomas-Asante, Salford City, Salford City 1-1 Oldham AthleticSalford City made it three games unbeaten, but were denied a third win in a row by Danny Rowe.

Brandon Thomas-Asante had given The Ammies the lead in the first half, scrambling in a saved Adam Rooney penalty.

However Rowe notched his first EFL goal in the 83rd minute after Salford struggled to take their chances.

A point was enough to lift Salford to 12th, but Graham Alexander was frustrated at not taking all three points.

“Three points should have been ours today, we did more than enough, but if you’re loose in the final third and don’t get that second goal, you’re susceptible to conceding an extremely poor goal out of nothing. We’ve dropped two points, that’s all I can say.

“We started the game in the right fashion, and what we’ve learned from this week about starting the game right we did that, and we were the dominant team. 

“We go 1-0 up and deservedly so, but then you’re looking to build on that, get that second and then go on and win the game, but we weren’t ruthless enough in the final third. 

“I don’t think we showed enough quality when we got into good areas, I thought we were very untidy, and we didn’t get that second goal.”

The Ammies go into Tuesday’s game at Cambridge United with four points from the last six in the league, and the Gaffer is expecting a response from his side.

“The games come thick and fast in the league. 

“We’ve got to go down to Cambridge; if we go down there and win the game you look at four points, but that won’t overshadow the disappointment from today’s result because I think we’ve thrown two points away.

“We’ve got to make up ground that we’re losing by winning games whenever we can and Tuesday’s the next opportunity for that.”
