10:29pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Sport
RAMSBOTTOM United came from behind to get a share of the spoils in a 1-1 derby draw with Radcliffe Borough.
Kevin Glendon’s Radcliffe side opened the scoring in the Evostik First Division One North encounter with a 24th-minute goal by Brad Robinson and it remained 1-0 at half-time.
In the second half, the visitors put Borough under pressure with Billy Priestley hitting the post and Jon Robinson heading wide.
Ramsbottom substitute Tom Brooks was only on the park a minute when he grabbed the equaliser.
Things went from bad to worse for Radcliffe as defender James Mullineux was sent off for a foul on Philip Dean.
The result leaves Radcliffe rooted to the bottom of the division while United are just out of the relegation zone.
