FC Stafford travelled to title favourites Ludlow last Saturday in the West Midlands Division Two on the back of three hard to swallow defeats.
A couple of changes were made to the starting line up has Charlie Marshal and Jamie Lowman were reinstated to the starting XI while a full debut was given to Josh Anderson.
The game was very open from the start as both sides looked to press on an expansive pitch and things were looking bright for Stafford as they found space out wide right with Marshall and Andrew Willacy.
The opening chance would fall to the hosts as Luke Hicks header was looped over the bar.
Stafford started to dominate possession as the ever impressive Matt Bickley and Matt Rhodes linked up with Anderson to control proceedings.
Chances were hard to come by but when Matt Deane found Anderson who linked up with Willacy to fire across it was to be Thomas Duffy whose shot tightly screwed wide.
Stafford would again create another excellent move when Rhodes took control in the centre of the park linking up with Martyn Wheeler and Duffy before flicking the ball over the defenders feet and firing narrowly over.
Two minutes after the break Ludlow had their first shot on target when Wheeler conceded a penalty for a trip, it was dispatched giving the hosts a fortunate lead.
FC looked to bounce back and Willacy should of done better when being released but struggled to pull the ball from underneath his feet.
Stafford continued to dominate with Wheeler and Rhodes both testing the opposition goal though it was to be the latter after 65 minutes that would equalise after Duffy’s smart header led to Rhodes to elegantly chip the on rushing goalkeeper.
Stafford continued to push and with Warren Slater, Ben Roberts and Matt Deane looking comfortable at the back it allowed the central midfield three to press the hosts.
Chances were to fall to Duffy, Ryan Brown and Anderson in the closing stages though the hosts held on to gain a point.
On Saturday FC Stafford host Malvern Rangers at Rowley Park.
