Barwell 0 Warrington Town 1

SUBSTITUTE Abou Sanogo was Warrington’s hero as they bounced back from their midweek defeat in fine fashion.

Sanogo’s 75th-minute winner proved the difference in Leicestershire as Yellows moved up to second in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Paul Carden’s men had the best chance of the first half but striker Jamie McDonald, returning from a hamstring injury, was denied by the woodwork.

McDonald smashed a shot across goal which beat the goalkeeper, but crashed off the base of the post.

Jake Heath’s long-range effort at the other end flew over the bar, before Matt Stenson’s shot from a tight angle was easily saved by Yellows stopper Tony McMillan.

Early in the second half, it was Barwell’s turn to rattle the woodwork when Stenson’s volley struck the crossbar.

However, the winner came in slightly fortuitous circumstances when Sanogo’s looping cross found its way over the goalkeeper and into the net.

Warrington Town: McMillan, Goulding, McKeown, Gumbs, McCarten, Higgins, Hine (Sanogo), Richards, McDonald, Williams, Bakkor (Kinsella). Subs: Adam Carden, Hughes, Davis.
