Warrington Town boss Mark Beesley is pleased with the way his side bounced back to winning ways following a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Radcliffe at Cantilever Park.
The Yellows came into this game on the back of three consecutive defeats, but an early Stefan Mols goal calmed any previous nerves as the Yellows displayed a resilient performance to take all three points.
Saturday’s result sees Town move into 12th place in the Northern Premier League, just three points behind Tuesday’s opponents Warrington Rylands.
Speaking post-match, Beesley admitted that his squad needed a win after their confidence had been somewhat knocked following a string of defeats.

“It’s good to get back to winning ways, we’ve had a difficult two weeks.
“Results wise, it’s gone against us so we needed to win a game to get that little bit of confidence back and thankfully it was today.
“I think all of a sudden we’ve gotten a bit nervous and that happens.
“We’ve got a certain way of playing, we want to keep playing it and we want to keep believing in it but when you don’t get results it’s human nature that your confidence wanes a little bit.”
Beesley recognised that his side rode their luck at times against Radcliffe – Evan Gumbs made two goal line clearances, but states that they were due a change in their fortunes.
“I think we rode our luck, let’s not hide away from that, I think we haven’t had it all season so we’ve got a little bit of luck today.
“But you’ve got to earn your luck and I think the lads earned that, not just from what they’ve done today, but throughout the season.”
Looking ahead to Tuesday’s local derby clash against Rylands, Beesley states that his team can now refocus on an important fixture for the club with the win under their belt.

“We’ve got to focus on each game and Tuesday is obviously a big game for the town.
“It’s good that there is a big game in the town, I’m sure both teams will enjoy the occasion.
“It was important that we concentrated on today before Tuesday, we’ve got quite a few little niggles in there so it will be nice to see who we have available.
“[Rylands] are a really good team. They’ve got some really good attacking players and they are defending well under their new manager.
“It’s going to be a tough game, they will be right up there at the end of the season. They have recruited really well, so we’re expecting a really difficult encounter.”
