Report: Curzon Ashton 0-3 Warrington Town

Warrington Town earned revenge for two defeats earlier in the season as they won 3-0 at Curzon Ashton.

Nash knocked the Yellows out of the FA Cup earlier in the campaign, and also won 4-1 in the reverse league fixture.

But goals from Isaac Buckley-Ricketts (2) and Connor Woods earned Mark Beesley’s side their 14th win of the National League North season.

It means they have now broken the 50-point barrier, widely regarded as the safety target to avoid relegation.

Rather than worrying about relegation, the Yellows are right in the mix for the play-off places, now sitting two points off the top seven.

Preston loanee Kacper Pasiek came in for his debut in place of the suspended Matt Grivosti, sent off in the goalless draw at home to Boston United a week ago.

The two goals came within seven minutes of each other towards the end of the first half.

In the 35th minute, Woods slid a ball through for Buckley-Ricketts to fire home low, his 12th goal of the season.

Woods then scored a solo goal of his own on 42, beating three defenders and firing in to the bottom left corner for his ninth of the campaign.

The wet Manchester weather was the main risk in the second half, while the conditions no doubt contributed to a flurry of yellow cards.

Buckley-Ricketts continued his fine goalscoring form in injury time, latching on to a Jay Harris through ball to make it three on the day, and his sixth goal in five games.

Warrington are next in action away at Spennymoor Town on Tuesday.
