After somewhat fortuitous wins versus Stamford and Tadcaster, Marske could easily
argue that the Belper and Pontefract games should have resulted in six points,
rather than the two they actually earned.
Colne earned a point with a good performance at Radcliffe on Saturday. A goal after 20 minutes by new signing Richard Taylor on loan from Burnley gave the Reds a well deserved lead but Radcliffe came back strongly in the second half to deny them a win.
In the end, having played against 10 men for 25 minutes, Marske will probably feel
that this was 2 points dropped. However, credit must go to Belper for their never
say die attitude which earned them what was probably a deserved draw.
