The Silkmen’s poor fortune this season continued as the Silkmen drew 1-1 with Barnet.

After a string of high-placed sides playing against the Silkmen, high-flying Barnet were the next to visit the Moss Rose.

and whilst the Blue sbecame the first side in six games to take a point off the Bees, it still took an own goal from the usually impeccable Paul Morgan to share the spoils.

Barnet will no doubt point to their two good chances, which included hitting the post, but the Silkmen could also have hit a winner late on.

This game left the Silkmen’s results list so far as four clubs from the top group and only three from the bottom half.

Ricky sappleton took the lead for the Silkmen with his second goal in two games, turning his marker brilliantly and drilling a low shot into the bottom corner in front of a worryingly sparse Moss Rose crowd.

The Silkmen were well on top for most of the first half and the visitors were relieved to see Paul Morgan misjudging a header and sending it past his own ‘keeper.

Both sides had chances to win the game in the second half, Morgan having to clear off the line after the Bees had hit the post. The Silkmen forced their own goal-line clearance from John Rooney, whilst Emile Sinclair also had a good chance to win the game, but couldn’t connect first-time.
