Silsden 1 Congleton Town 1

Silsden earned a creditable draw and it could have been more.

The visitors are in the top half of the North West Counties Premier Division table but struggling Silsden were within six minutes of a rare victory.

Chris Wademan gave the Cobbydalers the lead just before the hour mark when he netted with a low shot after a 30-yard run.

Town’s late leveller came when Ian Willis’ rocket of a free kick hit the Cobbydalers’ wall but rebounded for Chris Smith to slot home from close range.
