Conference North side saw four-goal lead pegged back in last 10 minutes!

The Conference North produced one of the best games of the season as Salford City overturned a four-goal defecit in ten minutes to secure a draw away from home to Kidderminster Harriers.

'The Ammies' were brought by Manchester United alumni consisting of Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt in 2014 and have since reached new heights with their support.

Their dream is to make it into the Football League (EFL) but first they must negotiate the Conference North and the Vanarama National League.

Kidderminster stood in their way on Saturday and things did not get off to a good start for Salford.

By the 56th minute they found themselves four goals down, facing an almost-impossible battle to get anything from the game but that didn't stop them from trying.

The breakthrough came ten minutes before the full-time whistle and started an incredible comeback, typical of England's unpredictable leagues, which saw them find the net four times to secure an unbelievable 4-4 draw at the death.

Understandably the fans and players were delighted with the effort, taking to social media to share their rollercoaster emotions with midfielder Scott Burton writing: "We're never down until we're out".

"Massive set of [balls] from the boys. That point will be massive come the end of the season. #nevergiveup Salford City FC. Fair play to the fans, sang their hearts out at 4-0 down!! Init together".

The point takes them ahead of Harrogate Town to the top of the Conference North, having played a game more, in what looks to be a tight two-horse race for the title.
