SCORERS (MINUTE): 

IN A NUTSHELL: Swifts had chances to win but a dull stalemate saw them lose ground in the Bostik North play-off race. Swifts were also delighted to welcome fans of the club who were visiting from Ireland (pictured above by Alan Edmonds).

KEY ACTION: It was an uneventful first half with no chances for either side. After the restart Chris Millar created a chance for Harrison Chatting, but he hit the bar from a tight angle. And soon after Chatting missed another chance to give the Swifts the lead. And it might have proved costly but for a great late save from Swifts keeper Chris Haigh to ensure the points were shared.

SWIFTS STAR MAN: Chris Haigh. A vital late stop to earn a point which could yet prove crucial.

SWIFTS DEBUTS: None.

INJURY CONCERNS: None.

ENTERTAINMENT VALUE: 2/10
