While the Robins and the Scousers played out a 1-1 draw Stone Dominoes continued their winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Irlam Town creeping up the table in the bargain.
According to thisisstaffordshire.co.uk the Dominoes dominated a game in which they had to recover from conceding a goal within the opening minute.
Nial Maguire levelled from the penalty spot after 55 minutes and leading scorer Dan Brown got the winner midway through the second half with his 26th goal of the season.
Stones' leading scorer's more lucrative pastime?
That's five wins on the bounce for the team from Yarnfield.
Which is all well and good apart from they are now just three points behind the Robins and happen to be their opponents this Saturday...
Another massive game and one that the Robins will need to be at their best to prevail.
Midweek's tussle was probably a fair result but you can't help thinking after going ahead it's a pity we couldn't hold on to it. Then again as the AFC goal was offside and we had a couple of chances later... but an excellent night and the 300 supporters present couldn't complain.
Just can't wait for Saturday now. Those that went to Stone early in the season will concur that the set-up down there is absolutely superb with the hospitality and kackbit equal to that. The people at Dominoes have done a wonderful job and should be congratulated on that.
So it's the usual best wishes (rather than points) to Stone and the usual script for the rest of us.
