PAUL Carden hailed yesterday’s victory over Scarborough Athletic as “massive” for his Warrington Town side.

Tony Gray and Jack Dunn struck at Cantilever Park as Yellows recorded a fourth win in a row.

As well as maintaining their positive recent form, the win also helped them move within a point of second-place South Shields, who required an injury-time penalty to draw 1-1 with Basford United.

Carden spoke highly of his side’s work rate and organisation as they kept yet another clean sheet.

However, he also thought his side “rode their luck” when the visitors saw strong appeals for a late penalty waved away by referee Dale Baines with the score at 1-0.

“It’s a massive win for us and I thought we deserved it,” he said.

“I thought we were solid. The way they’ve been playing of late has been very expansive but we nullified that.

“Before Tony (McMillan) makes that good save from the corner, we could have had a couple more goals.

“Their keeper makes a great save from Robbo (Mark Roberts) and Marcus Cusani has had a great chance before Tony’s save.

“We probably rode our luck with the shout for the penalty.

“Coulson’s been clever – he’s watched Hughesey (Adam Hughes) run, he doesn’t know where he is and he runs into him.

“On another day, you see them given. We got our luck but I thought we earned that luck with our work rate and organisation.

“There were bits and pieces of good football in our play but not as much as I’d like or as much as the other night.

“The clean sheet wasn’t just the back four – everybody put a shift in.”
