Resilient Mossley were held to a goalless draw in tricky conditions at Seel Park on Tuesday night by a strong Tadcaster Albion side.
Sometimes goalless draws can be exciting affairs with chances galore but this was in the end very much a stalemate as defences were on top throughout with neither side able to greatly trouble the other.
Tadcaster edged possession in a largely uneventful first half but were unable to find a way past the Mossley defence. In fact Mossley came the closest when Tadcaster keeper Louis Jones was forced to tip Liam Ellis’ powerful drive over the bar.
The second half saw a further dearth of goalmouth activity and again it was Mossley who had the better chances.
Substitute Rio Ahmadi going close when he spun off the last defender only to fire narrowly wide and skipper Tom Dean had probably the game’s best chance when with only around ten minutes left on the clock he fired over the bar from Jordan Bove’s right wing corner when it looked easier to hit the target.
In the end both sides would no doubt be reasonably content with a point gained on a night when the weather conditions were the real winner.
