Into top half with Bamber Bridge win

The hardy group of supporters who worked all Saturday morning to get the pitch fit for play were rewarded by a battling performance which saw the Rams grab all three points and leap-frog their opponents into 11th position.  And the Chairman had the bonus of a bumper crowd fuelled by postponements elsewhere which would have been at least a 100 less had the game had to be rearranged.  So after a busy and challenging week there is a strong case to be made for all round contentment.

Rams show great bouncebackability

There was nothing pretty about this victory - in all honesty the Rams will play better this season and lose - but the win, against a high flying and skilled Lancaster team was all the more satisfying for that.

Poor Rams showing in Droylsden draw

What a difference three days makes.  On Saturday a 1-1 draw away was received with a roar of positive approval.  Last night the same result, albeit against a team lower in the league and down to ten men for the last 50 minutes or so, drew only grunts of frustration, anger and disbelief from the travelling fans who again were out in support in good numbers.  Mark Fell and his players need to be asking themselves some searching questions as to what went wrong in a game which the Rams had in firm control but which in the end was only going to have one winner - and that was not the visitors.

Missed chances cost Rams dear

Like Longfellow's little girl when the Rams are good they are very very good but when they are bad they are horrid.  What was most disappointing was not that this was a pretty bleak and disjointed showing but that at even that level and with the share of possession they had the Rams should have got something from the game against a Mossley team who were not match better.  So this was a poor game spoiled and made worse by arefereeing performance that was consistent only in its mediocrity.

Fearon master-save give Rams point

In the end this was a tale of two penalties - one coolly put away by Adam Kay to claw the Rams level on the hour, the second a superb save from Martin Fearon with just five minutes left to keep the Rams level.  In truth if that had gone in the Rams, devoid of a cutting edge, would have returned empty handed which would have been a harsh judgment on a courageous defensive effort which on balance merited a point.
