WITTON twice came from behind at Wincham Park on Saturday.
Farsley will feel aggrieved. They were the better side and Albion's equalisers came across as destructive rather than constructive.
But despite this hard-won point, Albion did little to convince that what started in August as a simple task was still within their capabilities.
A top-12 place was their minimum aim at the start of the season, but they are still hovering around the lower reaches of the band of clubs who will be included in the reshaped UniBond Premier Division next season.
Home draws, especially against rivals for top-half positions, are not good enough. Witton's form is stuttering, while Farsley had a star turn in Roy Stammer.
Their leading scorer had pace and control and was an ever-willing outlet for his side. He scored one goal and made the other, both of which were excellently executed.
That Farsley didn't return to Yorkshire with maximum points is down to Witton's Dave Nolan, who proved the old adage that they all count. His first goal came at the second attempt and the other was forced over the line amid goalmouth panic. Without criticising the midfielder, this did show a difference in quality in front of goal.
Witton's leading scorer, Mike Moseley, did not have an effort of note and his side created very little. Even Darrell Dicken, their flair player, fizzled rather than flaring up.
Stammer wasted his first chance - Paul Gibson saved - and, in the tit-fortat pattern of the game, James McCoy created Witton's first opening, for Moseley. Deep inside the box, his effort to beat the advancing Tom Morgan was weak.
It needed a Farsley goal to inspire Witton.
It came in the 24th minute, when Stammer held up a long ball to allow Mike Midwood to make his run. When he received the ball into his stride, he scored with a rising shot.
Five minutes later, a Dicken corner found Nolan and his first shot was beaten back to him by Morgan. He manoeuvred into a better position and scored his first goal for Witton inside the near post.
Andy Barlow, given a start by manager John Davison to liven up his wayward side, had to make a fine tackle on Graham Mitchell just before half-time or Witton would have trailed at the break.
On the hour, Matthew Russell's diagonal ball caught Witton's defence out and Stammer outpaced Brad Sandeman to tuck his shot into the bottom corner.
But back came Witton again. Three minutes later, Morgan's unnecessary punch from a Dicken free-kick on the line landed at Brian Pritchard's feet. He turned the ball goalward and Nolan added the scoring touch, with some competition from McCoy.
The game began to drift after that and Stammer and Craig Sargeson came close to being match-winners.
An injury forced referee Mike Astley to quit during the interval. Linesman Paul Mahon took over, handing his flag to local ref and Witton safety officer Bob Robinson, whose loyalty and honesty were never tested.
