Carden reacts to City of Liverpool win and provides injury update

Yellows boss Paul Carden says he was pleased with how his side responded in the second half to beat City of Liverpool 2-1.

A lacklustre first half performance saw Warrington Town go in a goal down, with Tony McMillan scoring an unfortunate own goal off Karl Clair’s shot that hit the crossbar.

Carden said: “In the first half, they were better than us. We had little spells where we were OK but not really a threat.

“We had a few words at half time because we were doing things that weren’t like us. We were turning our backs to free-kicks, they have four men plus the ‘keeper behind the ball when they scored and we’ve got one up and everyone back, so again not what we’re about.

“Second half I thought we showed what we’re about, we had umpteen chances to score more than two, I thought we were a lot better.

“I was pleased with the response. I understand that the game isn’t going to be perfect all the time, and sometimes you just need that half time to re-group.”

Carden also offered an update on his injured players ahead of the new season.

David Raven was forced off early on Tuesday night with a calf niggle, replaced by James McCarten, but the boss says that was just a precaution.

Jack Dunn (calf) is back in training and could get a run out at Runcorn Linnets on Saturday, but Bohan Dixon is still a way off returning following surgery to remove a Bunyan.
