On Saturday, Burnley Belvedere lost 1-0 to Mostonians at the Vestacare Stadium in the Lancashire Amateur League.
And in the East Lancashire League First Division, Belvedere drew 1-1 at Barnoldswick Town’s Silentnight Stadium to maintain their recent improvement in form.
The first half was largely uneventful, with both sides unable to create a goal scoring opportunity.
The home side’s cause was not helped early in the match when George Skocki was forced to retire from the action with a recurrence of a persistent hamstring injury.
The 0-0 half-time score was an accurate summary of a rather drab and featureless 45 minutes.
The game finally came to life five minutes after the interval when Town were slow to react from a corner, and the Belvedere forward Joe Rigby headed the ball into the net at the back post.
The goal forced a reaction from the Barnoldswick side, and they equalised on 53 minutes with an almost carbon copy of their opponents goal a couple of minutes earlier.
Bailey Coates put a perfect corner on to the head of Joe Brown, who made no mistake with a fine header at the far post.
Belvedere host Feniscowles and Pleasington tomorrow.
