Last night saw Salford City travel to Tranmere Rovers for the final round of the Leasing.com trophy. They managed a 2-0 win and progressed to the next round.
Salford has been competing in the Leasing.com Trophy for the first time. Last night saw them win 2-0 which means they topped their group and have advanced to the next stage.
Collectively, the Salford squad put on a great performance. However, there was two stand out players.
Oscar Threlkeld opened the score sheet after only 2 minutes. Then, the Salford Captain, Liam Hogan managed to head home the winner.
Here’s why both of these players deserve praise for their performances…
The ex Bolton player has only been with Salford since the start of this campaign. I have seen him in action and have been very impressed by him in the past.
I predicted that he would be a stand out player for Salford this season, however, he hasn’t had much game time.
Last night saw him start the game and score after 2 minutes. This goes to show that he should be in the squad more often.
The 30-year-old centre back started his first game for the Ammies this season last night. He has been watching from the sidelines due to recovery.
Now, he is back with the Captain’s armband on. Fans are happy to see him return. Especially when he scored.
In the 56th minute, he showed that he was back with a bang when he headed home the winner. This clearly shows that he is still working just as hard.
