Second half goals from South Liverpool’s Mohamed Abdi and St Helens Joe Barker meant the points were shared in another 1-1 draw between these two teams.

The home side who had the first clear chance of the game, when Christopher Hill’s free kick from the right found the unmarked Barker who headed wide.

The same duo combined again 10 minutes later, but the through ball from Hills skidded too far for Barker to latch onto.

The changing weather conditions made it difficult for either side to get a foot hold in the game, with both teams struggling to control possession or create any real chances.

Rainbow appears in the sky over the match.

However, the away side threatened from set pieces, putting FC St Helens goalkeeper, Joseph Oldham, under pressure on multiple occasions.

Despite it being a very cagey uneventful first half an hour, the vistiors created the best chance of the game on the stroke of half time. A wicked delivery from left winger, Owen Hugh, provided striker Charlie Glennon with a brilliant opportunity, yet he was unable to get any contact on the ball and it came to nothing.

Both teams significantly improved in the second half, with chances coming regularly at each end.

South Liverpool’s Oscar Billington shone throughout with some mazy runs down the right wing and it was him who created the first goal of the game on 59 minutes.

Billington used his pace to set up Abdi with the easiest of tap ins.

‘The Stripes’ soon responded with opportunities of their own, Tom Scarborough saw his effort just go over the bar.

FC St Helens however didn’t have to wait long to equalise, when the leagues top goals scorer Barker was put through on goal, and fired into the top left corner.

The last ten minutes, saw both sides with golden opportunities to secure victory. Scarborough was denied from close range, Lucas Allan stood tall to make an impressive save.

At the other end, Lewis Williams used his pace and power to set up Elliot Owen who fired wide from just three yards out, much to the delight of the home fans behind the goal.
