WORCESTER City earned a point against play-off rivals Altrincham in an entertaining goalless draw at St George's Lane.

Both sides had chances to claim victory in tension-filled match but in the end had to settle for a share of the spoils in the race for the Blue Square Bet North top five.

Altrincham almost broke the deadlock late on when Danny Hall's header was hacked off the line by Tyler Weir, but Robins keeper Stuart Coburn was forced into a number of saves.

He denied Greg Mills on more than once occasion, while Mike Symons and Tom Thorley also went close.

Glyn Thompson also produced a double first-half save to thwart Jordan Sinnott, son of Altrincham manager Lee.

City striker Danny Glover admitted to mixed emotions after the match.

He said: "We are bit disappointed not to get three points but I thought we defended well. I think we needed to stay in the game, especially after last time when they beat us 3-0 (in the FA Trophy).

"I thought we stuck at it and were on top in the first-half. They probably shaded it in the second-half but the weather had a lot to do with that.

"I think we're improving as a team, we've just to go on and score a few goals now."
