Synners made it three games unbeaten with a goal-less draw against Tow Law Town.
In a close fought first half, Billingham had the better of the chances with Nico Weatherald and Scott Howes both having shots saved by Lawyers' keeper Alexander Curran. Curran again made a great save on 34 minutes as Kallum Hannah turned and shot from just inside the box and tipped the goal-bound effort round the post.
Half-time: Synners 0, Tow Law Town 0
After a good effort from Lawyer's Daniel Milburn went wide early in the second half, Synthonia went on to create a host of chances; Hannah saw his low shot saved by Curran and the stopper was again called into action with a good save from a Ben Pollock shot.
Pollock brought Synners forward again in the 77th minute and set up Matthew Wilson who saw his shot blocked by the defence; the loose ball came to Charlie Raby who saw Curran once again save his team.
Two minutes before the end, substitute Louis Johnson looked to have won it for Synners, but Curran again denied the green and whites with a save on the goal-line. Just a minute later Billingham had a strong appeal for a handball in the box, but Referee Mr Parnaby must have missed it as as the appeals were ignored.
