LAN­CASTER dou­bled their points tally when they had to set­tle for a draw against fel­low strug­glers North Ferriby in a game that only re­ally got go­ing in the sec­ond half.

Lan­caster had the only real chances of a scrappy first half with Tom Kil­ifin just fail­ing to get his head on a good cross and then Ben Hud­son head­ing wide from By Andrew Sat­terth­waite a free kick on the half hour mark.

A long-range shot from Paul Dug­dale curled just over the cross­bar af­ter 53 min­utes as Lan­caster be­gan to ap­ply some con­certed pres­sure. Char­lie Bai­ley twice came close to giv­ing the home side the lead just past the hour mark.

Hav­ing sur­vived the spell of pres­sure, North Ferriby came close them­selves when Danny Norton broke free and fired a shot that hit the un­der­side of the cross­bar and was cleared.

Ex­all then palmed away a cross from McLean just as Matty Blinkhorn was look­ing to head home and then two min­utes later Ai­den Stone made a good save from James Wil­liamson.

Lan­caster wasted two good chances in the space of a minute late on as Richie Baker blasted a shot over the cross­bar and then Blinkhorn shot tamely at Ex­all fol­low­ing a Dug­dale cross.

STAR MAN: Ben Hud­son (Lan­caster) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
