FRICKLEY Athletic produced a much-improved performance to take a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Stocksbridge Park Steels in the Evo-Stik Premier Division on Saturday.

Ashley Longstaff put the Blues ahead in the first half before Jack Muldoon levelled for Steels just after the hour mark to ensure the game finished level.

Blues boss Peter Rinkcavage will have been keen on three points from the return to his former club, but he will have been buoyed by the performance of his men as they continue their battle against relegation.

Frickley remain in the bottom four but could move out with victory at home against Nantwich Town on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
