LIVERSEDGE battled hard to earn a point at home to Retford United to edge closer to safety in the Northern Counties East League Premier.
The goalless draw moves Liversedge out of the bottom two, but it could have been so much better had the hosts not hit the woodwork twice.
Sedge struck the crossbar in the first half before Brandon Kane’s effort in the 93rd minute collided with the foot of a post and bounced to safety.
Jonathan Rimmington’s men defended brilliantly compared to their disorganised display against Worksop Town last Thursday evening, when the Clayborn side fell to a crushing 4-1 defeat against the league’s fourth placed side.
Sedge now prepare to host bottom placed side Nostell Miners Welfare tomorrow (Sat, 3pm) knowing a win could climb them out of the relegation zone for the first time this year.
