WARRINGTON Town showed “both sides of their game” in winning away at Marine today, manager Paul Carden says.

Bohan Dixon and Tony Gray struck in either half to secure a 2-0 victory over the strugglers and make it back-to-back Evo-Stik Premier Division wins.

Yellows were comfortable for most of the game and rarely looked troubled by their hosts once Dixon had given them the lead.

Carden says he was pleased with how his side coped with the physical nature of the game to earn their right to play more expansively as the game went on.

“It turned into a comfortable win, but it was hard-fought and the lads did really well,” he said.

“When we acted out what we said before the game in terms of making the narrow pitch as big as we could, we got down the sides of them and opened them up.

“Before we scored, we could have had a couple.

“There were some really good performances on both sides of the game.

“The back four did what the back four do. Ben (Garrity) wrenched his shoulder before the game but I thought he and Robbie (Evans) were really disciplined.

“To a man, we put both sides of our game on the table and came up with a deserved win.”

Dixon lit up a first half that was high on endeavour but low on quality with a superb long-range goal, taking his tally of goals to the season to seven.

It capped an impressive display by the imposing forward, and Carden explained how a mid-game tweak to his performance led to Gray’s second goal.

“At half time, I spoke to Bohan about him trying to run the ball through the middle all the time.

“They were playing a diamond in midfield, so they were getting bodies around him.

“He lost the ball on a couple of occasions after he scored when the ball out wide was on.

“When he did get the ball wide, that’s where the second goal came from.

“When he puts the effort with the ability and athleticism, you can’t get near him. He’s too big, too talented and too quick.

“When you piece those things together, there is a massive player there and we’ll keep trying to make him do the right things.”
