AFTER watching his 1874 Northwich side play out a goalless draw with Ashton Athletic, co-manager Wayne Goodison had no complaints about the result.

In a game between two of the North West Counties League Premier Division’s in-form sides, both attacks were cancelled out in the 0-0 stalemate at Townfield.

1874 remain top of the table but have seen their lead trimmed to just two points.

“We’re disappointed that we’ve not won the game, but ultimately it was a tight game between two good and evenly-matched sides,” Goodison said.

“It was probably a 50-50 game so a draw was probably fair. We’ve both tried to win the game and ultimately we’ve cancelled each other out.

“There weren’t too many clear-cut chances, which shows both defences have played well.

“We’re happy again that we’ve performed to a decent level. We’ll take the clean sheet and add that to our tally.”

Goodison and co-boss Paul Bowyer must pick their side up quickly, with a trip to Whitchurch Alport on Monday evening on the horizon.

“We’ve got a few bumps and bruises in there that we’ll have a look at tomorrow,” he said.

“We’ve got a squad we can use if we have to. We’ll go to Whitchurch on Monday with the same intention – to go and perform.”
