BURSCOUGH Richmond are fast becoming the draw specialists of the division with yet another at Hawcoat Park Barrow.
The home side kicked off on a heavy pitch, the first 10 minutes or so both sides testing each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
The first real chance for Richmond fell to striker Murt on 15 minutes - the big forward in space with the keeper off his line, a deft chip was needed but the ball didn't gain the height it required and Edicott in goal collected.
Murt went close on several more occasions in the half but the the lethal finish was missing.
The home side won a free-kick just outside the Richmond box leading into half-time. It looked tricky to defend but the wall did its job and the ball was cleared.
In the second half Richmond upped their game with the visitors outstanding in midfield and five minutes into the restart Murt was once again on the end of good play, the front man and man of the match lashing the ball against the bar.
On 55 minutes Richmond had a player sent off, the young defender Morton being shown a red card by referee Mr.Cottrell for what can only be described as a rather over zealous tackle.
Manager Clandon had some rearranging to do and sent on Dean and Jordan.
The sending off seem to galvanise the team and they took the game to the hosts with Jordan going close three times - one effort on 75 minutes hitting the post and spinning agonisingly across the goal mouth and out for a goal kick.
The goals will come sooner or later but for now Richmond had to settle for the draw and curse their luck because it was a game they could have won.
