ST HELENS Town had a hectic schedule with two games in three days at the weekend.

Thursday evening brought Lower Breck to the Arcoframe Stadium at Ruskin Drive in a repeat of this season’s opening day fixture which Town won 2-1 before a sun-drenched crowd.

Alas, fortunes have dipped following Town’s great start to the season and they now find themselves at the lower end of the table but the spark of a revival has been apparent recently. Despite going down 5-3 against Breck, Town were 3-1 up at the half hour but surrendered the initiative by half time. A Weaver brace and a power header from Diggle were Town’s marksmen.

On Saturday conditions were difficult with a blustery wind and driving drizzle. Nelson had the first use of the elements and went ahead when a corner kick from the right saw Hill head home from close range.

Town’s response was through Josef Faux whose raids down the left were telling and on the half hour he won a corner which was cut back to Gary Grier who lashed home a bullet from 30 yards.

Now with the wind at their backs, Town made a fine start to the second half and took the lead on 48 minutes when Faux fired in off the post after Diggle had brought a good save from Wsiewicz in the Nelson goal.

Now on top, Town forced the pace but Diggle couldn’t make the most of three decent chances but his work rate was always a threat to the visitors but as the tide turned in the later stages Nelson levelled. Left back Grice was the scorer with a fine finish into the top corner to make it 2-2.

On Saturday Town are at home to Oldham based Avro, 3pm kick off.
