Report: Bamber Bridge 3-2 Warrington Town

Warrington Town slumped to a third straight defeat as they lost 3-2 away at Bamber Bridge.

Two goals in four first half minutes put the hosts in command and though the Yellows twice halved their deficit, they were always chasing the game.

Nathan Pond reacted quickest to Noah Alabi’s cross to give Brig a 19th minute lead, and then Paul Dawson drove through middle and fired a low shot past Tony Thompson.

Matty McDonald, after changing his boots midway through the first half, gave the Yellows hope with a well-taken goal off the back of a Mikey Howard run five minutes before the break.

But within four minutes of the restart, Brig restored their two goal lead when centre-half Macauley Wilson found himself in the Yellows box and dug out what looked to be a cross to the far post, but it hit the inside of the upright and was judged to have crossed the line before Thompson claimed.

The Yellows had looked livelier at the start of the second half, and although they responded straight away when Jay Harris swept home from a loose ball off a corner, they couldn’t find an equaliser.

Howard was denied a goal by ‘keeper Felix Goddard, who rushed out of his box off a through ball, and Goddard was also alert to halt Amis.

Brig looked just as likely to score in the final quarter though, and when Thompson gifted Dawson possession 25 yards out, he was fortunate that the former Lancaster City man’s chip landed on the roof of the net.
