Grantham Town took a share of the points at Buxton on Saturday as managerial duo Ian Robinson and Gary Sucharewycz look for a good run-in to the end of the league campaign.
The Gingerbreads went behind on the stroke of half time but levelled midway through the second half in a much improved 45 minutes.
Robinson said Grantham were unlucky to concede before the break: “We matched them for the first half and defended well. After the break, we were more direct when we needed to be, but moved the ball about well at times too. We could have had more than the one goal.
“However, we have got to be happy with a point from that game.”
Battling away and now just three points below Grantham, Stocksbridge Park Steels picked up two wins on the trot this week – and still have three games in hand.
Second from bottom Kendal Town might still be the Gingerbreads’ saviours, trailing Grantham by nine points, although with seven games still to play.
Robinson said: “Stocksbridge Park Steels have started a good run as well. But we expect to pick up points from a number of games between now and the end of the season.
“We want to finish the season strongly and get as many points as we can.”
