Salford City 0-0 Crawley Town

Salford and Crawley played out an entertaining 0-0 draw as both sides extended their decent runs of form.

Neither side could find that all-important breakthrough, but Salford are now undefeated in five games and Crawley have lost just once in their last 10.

Salford went close early on when Bruno Andrade's thunderbolt was palmed away by diving goalkeeper Glenn Morris.

Giant striker Tom Elliott then saw a powerful header tipped over the top by Morris.

Crawley's best chance of the first period came when Josh Dacres-Cogley played in Ollie Palmer, but he scuffed his shot when under pressure from Salford skipper Liam Hogan.

Elliott was denied by Morris again just before the interval as his effort from Ash Hunter's cross was superbly turned away.

Crawley defender Manny Adebowale glanced a header just off target early in the second period, while at the other end Hunter turned superbly to meet Jack Baldwin's pass before volleying inches over.

Salford sub Richie Towell was unlucky late on when his goal-bound strike was blocked by Jordan Tunnicliffe.
