Salford City are looking to extend their unbeaten run to six games as they travel to Harrogate Town for a promotion six-pointer.

The Ammies were unable to make it five wins on the trot on Saturday as their game with 17th placed Barnet ended in a stalemate at the Peninsula Stadium.

Salford boss Graham Alexander praised his team saying: “I think that the effort and commitment was certainly there from the players and the team. We had opportunities throughout the game, mainly from set pieces, probably didn’t produce enough from open play.”

Up until Saturday’s goalless draw, the Ammies had been enjoying a faultless March with crucial victories against Ebbsfleet, Sutton, Solihull and Aldershot without conceding a single goal in the process.

Their upturn in form has seen them jump into 4th position, three points above fellow promotion hopefuls Harrogate Town, who sit 6th in the National League table.

Harrogate are enduring a small slump in form, picking up just one point from the previous two matches, losing ground in the promotion race to the Football League.

Promotion rivals Leyton Orient, Solihull and Fylde are all in action tonight, meaning that they could heap pressure on Salford to get a result tomorrow.

A win in this promotion six-pointer would send a statement to the rest of the league that Alexander’s side are not content with a play-off spot.
