The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL PREMIER -

War­ring­ton couldn’t break through the Shaw Lane back line through­out the game.

Their best chance fell to Tony Gray whose over­head kick sailed past the goal fail­ing to trou­ble Jon Ste­wart.

Top scorer Paul Clay­ton added to War­ring­ton’s woes with a third eight min­utes be­fore half time.

Chi­laka’s ef­fort from the edge of the box was par­ried by Anthony McMil­lan to the feet of Clay­ton who needed to dink it over the keeper from close range.

The in­tro­duc­tion of former Leeds and Don­caster player Billy Payn­ter didn’t in­vig­o­rate the Yel­lows in the sec­ond half.

It was Spencer Har­ris’ turn to get on the score sheet three min­utes from the restart.

Byrne saw his cross played back to the mid­fielder by Chi­laka and the shot left McMil­lan flat footed as he could only watch an­other go past him.

Frus­tra­tion crept in and on 53 min­utes Jack Hig­gins was given his march­ing or­ders for a need- less high tackle on Clay­ton.

Three min­utes from full time Rob Or­lando-Young found him­self fouled in the area and Byrne beat McMil­lan on the re­bound after the keeper saved the ini­tial penalty.

“From minute one I thought Shaw Lane had nous and know how,” ac­cepted War­ring­ton boss Paul Car­den. “They prob­a­bly won’t play an­other game where it’s an eas­ier vic­tory.”
