Consett grind out a goalless draw at Tadcaster

Consett picked up another point away from home in the Northern Premier League tonight when they drew 0-0 at bottom club Tadcaster Albion.

The Steelmen welcomed back Calvin Smith, Matty Slocombe, pictured top, and Mark Foden from suspension, but had to settle for a draw on a night when defences were well and truly on top, with neither goalkeeper having a serious save to make.

And although another clean sheet away from home – the fourth since he became manager – will have pleased manager Tony Fawcett, his side failed to score for the fourth successive game.

The result means the Steelmen remain 10th in the table, 10 points off the promotion mix and eight points clear of the relegation play-off zone.

Of Consett’s remaining nine games, six are against teams currently below them in the table, but next up is a trip to third-placed Hebburn Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).
