Report: Marske United 1-2 Warrington Town

Warrington Town extended their unbeaten run to 14 games with a victory on the road at Marske United.

Bohan Dixon would open the proceedings just after the half-hour mark, but the visitors responded quickly through their top goalscorer Adam Boyes.

It looked as though the Yellows were heading towards their third-straight draw before Dec Walker fired home a fantastic free kick seven minutes before the final whistle.

Mark Beesley made three changes from the side that drew to Guiseley on Tuesday, with Jay Harris returning from suspension, Larnell Cole receiving his first start in a Yellows shirt and Jordan Buckley came back following a brief illness.

A typical fixture by the seaside, both teams had to adapt to the windy conditions in the early minutes of the game. Marske adjusted quicker when their corner brought on a goalmouth scramble which was eventually cleared by Town.

This started a 20 minute period of pressure from the hosts, Adam Boyes’ effort whistled inches past the post before Tony Thompson stopped a shot from Edward Church.

Despite the pressure, the Yellows held on and struck first when Bohan Dixon fired home Dec Walker’s cross.

Marske would have the final say of the half however through Adam Boyes who was on target for his 16th goal of the season, much to the dismay of the Town players who appealed for offside.

The majority of the second half saw both teams struggle to create any significant chances. Jordan Buckley almost restored the Yellows advantage fifteen minutes from full-time, but his header was well saved by Oliver Swan.
