A stunning strike by Simon Russell rescued a point for Gainsborough Trinity in their home clash with Vauxhall Motors on Saturday.

The Trinity midfielder left it until 11 minutes before the end before unleashing a spectacular strike which beat Zac Jones from 25 yards.

It was a brilliant end to what had been a relatively uninspiring Skrill North fixture.

A strong wind swirled around the Northolme making it difficult for the players out on the pitch. Trinity keeper Phil Barnes was called into action after 35 minutes to collect a dangerous cross from Matt Kosylo.

Trinity had their chances and in-form striker Bradley Barraclough tested the Vauxhall keeper more than once, but the home side could not make the breakthrough.

Vauxhall made them pay for that when they took the lead in the second half. A set piece, after 53 minutes was only half cleared and Williams smashed the ball into the top corner to give his side the lead.

Trinity boss introduced Darryn Stamp and Liam Davis and the pair made a difference as the Blues began to pile on the pressure.

One of their chances was finally taken when Russell produced his party-piece to save a point for Trinity.
