Weather-Hit Saturday Sees Warrington Take Closer Order

Saturday`s fixture list in the Evo-Stik league Premier on Saturday was once again badly hit by the weather, with only four games being given the go-ahead.

One of those was always going to be on at Coles Lane on Sutton Coldfield Town`s 3G, but it wasn`t good news for the bottom-markers, who fell to a 2-0 defeat to fourth-placed Warrington Town.

The Wire moved level on points with third-placed Grantham Town and three behind second-placed Shaw Lane AFC, courtesy of goals from Tony Gray right on half-time and then Jack Higgins 9 minutes from time.

Barwell moved to within a point of the play-off places in sixth after edging out Hednesford Town at Keys Park, leap-frogging their hosts in the table in doing so.

A crowd of 420 saw Jordan Graham break the deadlock right on the stroke of half-time to give the Pitmen the lead.

However, just 2 minutes after the break, Matt Stenson equalised and 6 minutes later, the same player put the Canaries in front.

Mitch Piggon made it 3-1 on 64 minutes, and although Tom Thorley reduced the deficit a minute from time, the hosts weren`t able to find a leveller.

No too far away there was a crucial win for Halesowen Town, who moved three points above Sutton Coldfield after beating a Rushall Olympic 2-0 at The Grove.

Lee Knight gave the Yeltz the lead immediately after half-time and Jack Kelly made sure with a second after 65 minutes.

Whitby Town are nine points now above the drop zone after earning a useful point from a 2-2 draw at Marston Road against Stafford Rangers.

In front of 413, Rob Thompson-Brown put Rangers ahead after 23 minutes and when Joe Thomas made it 2-0 just before the break, it didn`t look good for the Seasiders.

But as often occurs, two-goal interval leads can be dangerous, and it proved right again as a Lewis Mahoney penalty on the hour-mark and then Callum Patton in stoppage time salvaged a draw for Whitby.
