Warrington’s cup woes continue against Colwyn Bay
11:46am Thursday 27th September 2012 in Latest news
TOWN'S Cup woes continued after they travelled to Conference North outfit Colwyn Bay looking to progress to the third Qualifying Round of the 2012-13 FA Cup, only to lose out in a 3-2 thriller.
Following their FA Trophy defeat to Leek, Shaun Reid's side were looking to right the wrongs against Colwyn but instead dropped out of their second major cup comeptition in two weeks.
They were previously undefeated before the double cup loss, but they still have their unbeaten league record to defend in Clitheroe on Saturday, kick off 3pm, when they will be looking to leap-frog the fellow promotion-seekers and jump into the top four.
Warrington will need to start the game better if they are to maintain their push for the Evo-Stik Division One promotion on Saturday, as Colwyn Bay overran the visitors in the first half and opened a 2-0 lead at the break thanks to goals from Danny Lloyd and Rob Hopley.
Town were 3-0 before they started to make a game of it, Hopley adding a second before the introduction of Lee McEvilly turned the game for the Yellows.
Goals from McEvilly and Kevin Towson almost allowed Warrington to perform a miraculous comeback, but Ash Ruane's late effort was saved brilliantly by Bay keeper Chris Sanna to prevent a draw.
Town: Judge, Reid, Aley (Mooney, 88), Shipton, Flynn (c), McCarten, Townson, Miles, Davies (McEvilly, 53), Douglas, Virtue (Ruane, 46).
