KENDAL Town claimed four points in its last two matches, most recently putting on a tough performance against Liverpool.

The Mintcakes drew 0-0 against fellow relegation rivals City of Liverpool on a bitterly cold afternoon.

City Of Liverpool were in good form winning three out of the last four games while Kendal was revitalised following their crucial 2-1 win against Market Drayton Town.

However, the hosts had most of the possession in the first half with very few chances while Kendal defended well.

City of Liverpool’s best chances of the first half fell to Josh Quarless who flicked a header onto the roof of the net from close range whilst Jack Hazlehurst saw a bobbling long-range effort well held by Kendal Town’s on-loan Preston North End goalkeeper Oliver Lombard.

The second period again saw City of Liverpool pressing for an opening, and the hosts saw Jay Murphy have a goal ruled out for offside early on.

The forward looked to have made a late run from deep and neatly slotted home across Lombard, but the flag was raised and the goal would not count.

At the other end, Sam Braithwaite fired a snapshot over the bar from inside the City of Liverpool box, whilst Jordan Scott had a golden chance to test Taberner from close range but fired wastefully over.

Lombard then denied a bobbling effort from Josh Quarless before clawing out a fierce drive from Jay Murphy from the edge of the area after good work from Hazlehurst worked the opening.

Kendal continued to defend valiantly, with City of Liverpool having most of the possession as the conditions continued to get colder.

However, the hosts had two golden opportunities to finally open the scoring late on but were left to rue missed chances to take all three points.

Firstly, Xenon Bahula raced down the right before dinking across the face of goal for the late-arriving Jay Edgar.

Lombard was scrambling and wouldn’t get there in time but the ball had just too much on it for Edgar, who fired agonisingly wide at the back post on the stretch.

City of Liverpool arguably had the best opportunity late into the game after a deep corner from the left was met at the back post by a towering header from centre back Scott Lycett, but it flew into the side netting with the goal at his mercy.

Kendal Town will be travelling to Widnes on Saturday for their next match.
