Lancaster City's first Northern Premier League away day ended in a stalemate against Marine AFC.

Very strong defensive displays from both teams ensured that the game ended in a 0-0 draw on Tuesday night.

New defensive signing Kyle Brownhill was officially announced by Lancaster City on Monday and was thrown straight into the starting 11.

The Dollies’ man of the match was captain Andy Teague, who played an essential role in City keeping a clean sheet.

Both sides had a fair share of chances in a relatively evenly-matched affair, but neither team were able to profit from a string of set pieces during the game.

The most controversial moment of the match occurred when Marine were denied a penalty after their forward Jake Burton fell to the ground following a challenge from a Lancaster City defender.

Mark Fell was satisfied with his side’s performance, telling Lancaster City’s website that "if there was going to be a team that shaded it, it was us" but "a point is probably a fair result".

He added that "tonight’s point is a good point, unlike Saturday where I thought it wasn’t" referencing City’s 1-1 home draw against Nantwich Town last weekend.

Fell also said in his post-match interview that Brad Carroll is set to miss the next four to six weeks through injury, with another five or six players also out of action – most of their return dates are unspecified.

The Dolly Blues will now be looking forward to another away trip, this time to Stalybridge Celtic, who will head into the game having lost their two opening games of the campaign.
