Salford City’s unbeaten league record at home continued after a 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United.

Tom Clarke scored his second goal of the season, hooking in a parried Ibou Touray cross shortly after the half hour.

The visitors drew level though before the break when Abo Eisa scored from the penalty spot after Di’Shon Bernard brought him down.

Substitute Mani Dieseruvwe hit the post in the second half, but the game was made difficult by a bobbly surface which had an impact on both teams.

And while it’s another point on board, Richie Wellens says they need to translate into wins.

“I feel for the players, both sets of players, and when you’re playing on a pitch like that it’s get it forward, don’t make mistakes, and unfortunately for us they’ve put a ball down the side we’ve made a mistake and they’ve put a penalty away at a really bad time because if we go in at 1-0 I’ve got a feeling we’d have gone on to win the game. 

“I think we tried to win the game in the second half, I don’t think we were in any danger of losing it, we had a couple of opportunities, Mani hits the post at the end but yeah, a really poor game of football on a poor pitch.

“Today we’re very disappointed with a point, and I know people keep saying we’re unbeaten at home but I want to win, I don’t want to draw. 

“Rather than draw three games I’d rather win two and lose one. Home form’s good but I want to win, the only way now that this is a good point is if we go away from home and win at Crawley, that means in the last four games we would have picked up eight points which is a decent return that keeps our run going.”

The Ammies are on the road on Tuesday away at Crawley, KO 19:00 at The People’s Pension Stadium.
