WINSFORD Saxons suffered from “one of those days” on Saturday according to manager Gary Lee Jamieson.

Try as they might against Rossmore Rangers, the ball just would not go in for them for long periods.

It looked as though Dean Mundy’s second-half strike to finally breach the Rossmore rear guard would be enough to secure a hard-earned three points, but the visitors struck late to snatch a 1-1 draw.

While Jamieson got what he was looking for – an improved display from last week’s 4-1 hammering by Duddon United – he could not help but wonder what might have been in a game moved to Winsford Academy’s 3G surface due to the horrendous conditions.

“The rain didn't stop us from completely dominating from start to finish,” he said.

“It was just one of those games in football where the ball just wouldn't go in the net no matter what we tried – it could easily have been 5-0 in the first half.

“The result was unjust but we wanted a performance much better than the previous week against Duddon and we gave it in abundance.

“It is just one of those games you have to accept as a manager.

“On another day, its a comfortable win but ultimately we're happy with the way we reacted from our loss last week.”

Callum Herbert was denied three times by the Rossmore goalkeeper before the break as Saxons pressed before Mundy finally broke through with 15 minutes remaining – his 25-yard effort struck both posts before eventually settling in the net.

However, this sparked the visitors into life and they managed to grab an equaliser in the late stages.

Saxons are currently not slated for Chester and Wirral Football League action again until October 24 when they travel to Waggon & Horses FC.
