A few major decisions by the referee stood out in a game lacking in clear chances.
Cables started the game on the offensive, stringing together a series of corners.
The best chance of the first half occurred when James Edgar found himself with an opportunity to shoot on goal but opted for a pass to Hamilton, which was deflected behind for a goal kick.
The second half began with the same lack of pace as the first. Aaron Turner picked up a booking and was then dismissed for a second yellow just minutes later.
Turner’s sending off opened the door for Trafford to press much higher. However, apart from one long effort and a couple of free kicks, they didn’t find much room for a shot.
In the final minutes an appeal for a penalty to Cables was waved away and the game fizzled out to a goalless draw.
