IT was honours-even in the West Lancashire League on Saturday as fourth-placed Euxton Villa hosted the team below them Garstang.

Manager Mark McDonnell believed the draw was a ‘fair result’ and they will be looking to put on a display against Blackpool Wren Rovers this weekend.

He said: “ It was always going to be a tight game and they have had a good season.

“We had quite a few opportunities in the first half with Connor Gronback and Greg Johnston going close while Liam Higginbottam making some good saves.

“Both teams tried to get on top in the second half and Garstang forced Liam (Higginbottom) into making a few saves and Sam Bolton also cleared the ball off the line.

“Connor (Gronback) had a chance but could not take the opportunity and then George Davies was also foiled.

“It was a good point and no-one really deserved to win it.

“We have Blackpool next and then Garstang again.

“We are really looking for third spot now and have a good squad to do it.

“It would be a good end to the season if we got there.”
