VAUXHALL Motors endured a frustrating bank holiday weekend – taking just one point from a possible six.
A 2-0 defeat at Fleetwood Town on Saturday was followed on Monday by a 1-1 home draw with Stalybridge Celtic.
Motors felt they did enough to take all three points from the Stalybridge game but were left to settle for their third draw of the season.
Motors had most of the possession but Celtic took the lead on 40 minutes through Nathan Joynes.
In the second half, the Motormen continued to dominate and got their just rewards on 60 minutes.
Karl Noon was fouled just outside the penalty area and Alan Griffiths hit a powerful free kick which took a slight deflection, leaving Celtic goalkeeper Paul Phillips stranded.
Two days earlier, the Motormen left Fleetwood empty-handed despite starting strongly. The hosts netted twice through Adam Warlow in the first half.
Motors hit the road twice this week – travelling to Gainsborough Trinity tomorrow and Burscough on Tuesday.
