Villagers hold Poles
POLISH Cup winners Ruch Chorzow had several internationals in their side and Saints' prospects of getting a result appeared slim, especiallly when Dariusz Gesior headed the visitors in front after just six minutes.
The Poles seemed happy with their away goal and Saints were able to gain confidence as the game wore on, pushing deeper into the visitors' half and putting them under pressure.
Simon Abercrombie sounded a warning note in the 75th minute when he hit a 25 yard volley just wide of the post into the side metting, with goalkeeper Kolodziejczyk well beaten.
The goal came in the 82nd minute, when a shot from Aneurin Thomas from the right edge of the box was deflected by a defender.
This stung Ruch Chorzow into an all out attack for the remainder of the game, but some stubborn defending and a couple of fine saves from Andy Mulliner ensured Saints hung on for a draw.
