Gloucester City earn hard fought point on the road

Gloucester City fans would have had a big sigh of relief this weekend as they managed to draw 1-1 with Farsley Celtic at The Citidel on Saturday.

Mike Cook, Gloucester manager, wasn’t happy with the state of the pitch saying it was ‘disgraceful’.

Sam Avery equalised from a corner for the Tigers after the hosts initially took the lead in the first minute of the game.

A shot from range rebounded into the path of Dave Syers for Farsely who tapped home before minute one had been completed.

The draw leaves Gloucester 13th in the table but just two points away from the play-off places.

It’s mostly Gloucester’s home form that has them sat so high up the table this season as away from the Jubilee Stadium their luck hasn’t quite been in.

Gloucester have struggled on the road recently and this point will be well celebrated, especially after their last away trip at Spennymoore Town.

Mike Cook’s men finished the game at Spennymoore with 8 men on the pitch and 4 goals behind.

More to follow on this story throughout the day on Park Life Sport.

2 red cards and a concussion to defender Vincent Harper left the Tigers short on the field.

The Gloucestershire side have failed to win in their last 3 games and have failed to win in their last 6 league away matches.

Gloucester are away at 11th place Alfreton town next in the league and this will be a big one for Mike Cook’s team as only goal difference separates the two sides.
