WIT­TON Al­bion scraped a win in what seemed to be a very un­event­ful game with a goal from Michael Wil­son giv­ing Al­bion the three points.

It took un­til the last ten min­utes for Whitby Town to re­ally step on the gas af­ter Al­bion, lead­ing in the first half through Michael Wil­son, got on the end of Owen Dale’s loose shot.

The clos­est the Seasiders got was in the 77th minute when Matthew Ty­mon’s shot was cleared off the line by Danny McKenna only for Keiran Weledji’s header to be saved.

It was a fairly even game be­tween the two sides in the first half with both sides hav­ing pe­ri­ods of play when they dom­i­nated pro­ceed­ings. How­ever Whitby strug­gled to cre­ate any real clear-cut chances with Ty­mon’s ef­fort the only real chance on goal Whitby had.

The Seasiders had Wit­ton penned into the edge of their own box for the re­main­ing ten min­utes but Al­bion kept the likes of Hulme, Ty­mon and Mon­dal at arms length.

A win for Al­bion keeps them in the hunt for the play-offs with Al­bion mov­ing up to eighth place af­ter Hed­nes­ford Town, who dropped down to ninth, lost at home to War­ring­ton Town.
