Brushes Rangers Spartak v North Manchester

10.15am  27 February 2016

Manchester Saturday Morning League, Division One
Brushes Rangers Spartak 2 North Manchester 2 (att 5)

Brushes Rangers Spartak are a bit of a gift to a Manchester-based groundhopper, as they seem to find a new home pitch each season.

Their current home, at Wright Robinson Sports College in Gorton, is the third ground I've seen them on. Neatly, it was also the third pitch I've been to at Wright Robinson, but unlike previous visits here this was on grass.

The college is home to a huge sports complex that's busy on a Saturday morning. As you enter there's a couple of grass pitches to the right of the large car park, while the artificial pitches are way over to the left.

Both these sides are in with a chance of lifting the league title, although visitors North Manchester have a backlog of fixtures to make up. They'll be satisfied to have got a point here, especially as they had to come from behind twice.

Both halves followed a similar pattern, with Brushes scoring first then being pegged back. The home side played the neater football, but North Manchester's direct approach was enough to deserve a point.

The got the draw thanks to powerful header after 86 minutes, coming just three minutes after Brushes' second goal looked as if it'd win the game for them.
