MACKRETH IS SPOT ON TO DOWN MARINERS
WARRINGTON Town continued their fine recent form with a nervy win over Marine.
A first-half penalty from Jack Mackreth was the difference but Marine provided a stern test to the Yellows’ credentials and they just about had all the answers.
Coming in to the game off six successive clean sheets and four commanding victories, the Yellows were forced back in the early exchanges by Marine, playing their first game under new manager Neil Young.
Tony McMillan, who was named the Yellows’ player of the month for August, denied former Warrington midfielder Liam Hynes from point.
And it was the Yellows that broke the deadlock, a tricky run by Dylan Vassallo ended up with him going down in the box and Mackreth converted despite the best efforts of Martin Fearonl.
Marine nearly cancelled it out barely 60 seconds later when Chris Doyle’s header hit the bar.
As the game entered its final quarter, the Warrington Town goal was leading a charmed life.
The best chance would fall for Mitchley, who hit the inside of the post on 86 minutes.
Warrington also hit the bar late on but held on, despite Richard Brodie’s late red card.
