A GOAL in each half from War­ring­ton saw them strengthen their place in the top five.

The vis­i­tors opened the scor­ing in the 17th minute when Tony Gray was able to loop an ef­fort over goal­keeper James Wren and into the un­guarded net.

In the 37th minute Hed­nes­ford were al­most caught out again but Matt Cur­ley made a fine block chal­lenge on Jamie McDon­ald.

Five min­utes into the sec­ond pe­riod a glo­ri­ous chance came the way of Hed­nes­ford when the ball broke for James Fitzgib­bon but he fired his ef­fort over.

In the 56th minute War­ring­ton added a sec­ond goal when Sean Wil­liams did well to work the ball into some space on the edge of the box and his low shot found the back of the net.

The Pit­men al­most re­sponded im­me­di­ately as Dar­ren Cam­pion whipped in a free-kick and Joey But­lin headed wide.

An­other chance came the way of Hed­nes­ford in the 71st minute but Reece King saw his shot cleared.

In the 84th minute the Pit­men were re­duced to ten men as Joe Fitz­patrick was sent off for a block tackle, and with him went any hope of a come­back.
