Town cheer super subs
11:54am Thursday 23rd February 2012 in Latest news
WARRINGTON Town will hope to continue their late surge up the table when travelling to Ossett Albion on Saturday, kick off 3pm.
They will have to push for promotion without striker Lee Madin, who broke his ankle against Bamber Bridge on Tuesday, though the return of striker Gavin Salmon from Salford City is likely to help ease the pressure on Town’s attack.

IN fact it was a goal from returning striker Salmon that prompted Town to extend their unbeaten run to eight.
Having returned from Salford City a day earlier, Salmon leapt off the bench on 65 minutes to head his side into the lead and earn Yellows a vital win in their bid for promotion.
Town were ahead through Lee Madin’s curled effort after 36 minutes, but saw their advantage cancelled out when a rejuvenated Bridge drew level through Danny Mahoney’s goal after the break.
But Joey Dunn still had a trick up his sleeve, bringing Salmon on to score Town’s second before Tom Hardwick’s late header sealed all three points.

SIXTEEN-year-old Dylan Glass repaid the faith shown in him by manager Joey Dunn by coming on to score a 95th minute equaliser against lowly Mossley to preserve his side’s unbeaten record in 2012.
The visitors had grabbed the first goal just before half time, an in-swinging cross tapped home by Tom Denton to earn the guests the lead.
But in dying seconds two substitutes combined to hand Town a well-deserved point, Chris Thompson’s mazy dribble and cut-back allowing Glass to become one of the club's youngest ever scorers at senior level.

WARRINGTON Town’s youngsters progressed in the Divisional Cup thanks to an own goal and a winner from George Emson.
They will hope to take this fighting form into the league match at Northwich Victoria on Sunday, before entertaining Tranmere Rovers in a friendly at Cantilever Park on Wednesday, February 29, 7.15pm kick-off.
