PAUL Carden was impressed by his Warrington Town side's resilience in their win over Buxton today.

Steve Jennings' penalty was the difference between the two sides at Cantilever Park as Yellows moved up to third in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Despite the visitors boasting the league's top goalscorer, 23-goal Liam Hardy, Town kept their second consecutive clean sheet.

Carden hailed the performance of his defensive players and says they sometimes do not get as much credit as they deserve.

"It’s a crucial win against a good, strong team who have a lot of experience in this league," he said.

"Sometimes winning football matches isn’t about nice play, it’s about doing the right things in the right areas.

"It was a tight game and it took a penalty to win it, but we were resilient.

"The two centre-halves and the centre midfielders were outstanding. We’ve put a shift in right through the spine of the team.

"We had good control of the game in the first half, but the second half was more about standing strong.

"That’s what we did and that’s what has won us the game.

"Our goals against column probably doesn’t ring true because we’ve had a couple of spankings.

"If you take them out, we’re as mean as anyone. They deserved a clean sheet today."

The game saw winger Devarn Green make his debut for Yellows after signing on loan from Tranmere Rovers.

He played 85 minutes and Carden says he has been after Green's signature for a while.

"He went to Tranmere and he’s not had a chance yet," he said.

"I’ve been trying to get him for some time, but for one reason or another they haven’t been able to let him out.

"I’m just really pleased we’ve eventually been able to get it done. We got it done late last night and got it cleared this morning.

"You can see what he’s got. He’s very smooth with the ball and can go past people."
