PAUL Carden was content to take a point after watching his Warrington Town side draw with league leaders Altrincham today.

In front of nearly 1,000 spectators at Cantilever Park, the wind and rain brought about by Storm Brian hampered both sides as the game finished goalless.

After the game, Carden said a share of the spoils was fair on the balance of play.

“It’s probably the only time I’ll say it in a home game, but I’m happy with a point and a clean sheet,” he said.

“There wasn’t a lot in the game. It was tight and the conditions did play a part in both halves.

“It was only ever going to be a mistake that was going to separate the teams today, but it was two good sides and no-one made a mistake.

“On the face of it all, a 0-0 draw was a fair result.”

Yellows had the better of the first half, with Jamie McDonald missing a great chance from Josh Hine’s cut-back.

The visitors had more possession in the second half, but Warrington’s defensive solidity came to the fore to protect their clean sheet.

Carden said he was pleased with the discipline his side showed and also said, on another day, they would have been celebrating a notable victory.

“We had a great move down the right, Josh cut it back and Jamie is unlucky,” he said.

“He’s just leaning back a little bit and that takes it over the bar. On another day, he scores.

“I know they work on trying to play out from the back. It was important we had a good understanding of when to press and when not to press and I thought we did that well.

“We highlighted before the game that the shape of the team would get us a result. It kept us solid, Jack Higgins and Jay McCarten were immense for us at the back.

“We held our shape well, there’s only a couple of times they went through us.

“Tony McMillan was superb as well and was calm when we needed it.

“The wind and rain picked up in the second half and they had more possession, but it’s fair to say we probably had more of the half chances.

“There’s a couple of times that we’ve caught them on the counter-attack though and we’ve looked a threat going forward.”
