ANGER was the overriding emotion for Warrington Town boss Paul Carden after watching his side draw with Bamber Bridge.

Richie Allen’s injury-time leveller secured a point for the hosts, who were 2-0 down and played the final half-hour of the game with 10 men following Chris Marlow’s red card.

Town had retaken the lead in the last minute of normal time through Tony Gray and that looked like securing the win until Allen’s late intervention.

Yellows’ winless run now stretches to five matches as they missed a chance to climb back into the play-off spots.

“I’m angry because we were in so much control of the game but went away from it,” Carden said.

“We looked nervous and like we didn’t know what our jobs were.

“We worked for 90 minutes two days ago on shape and organisation with and without the ball.

“We did it for 45 minutes but them having a man sent off was the worst thing that happened from our point of view.

“It was probably the best thing to happen to them – they were galvanised by it and they had more intensity about them.

“They deserved what they got out of the game and it disappoints me to say that.

“I don’t know how many times we’ve squandered a lead in the past few weeks. We’re a far cry from where we need to be if we’re going to be competing.”

Two goals in three first-half minutes had put Yellows in control, with Jack Dunn and Jack Mackreth scoring at Irongate.

However, a penalty on the stroke of half time which was converted by Rowan Roache, gave the hosts a foothold.

Marlow’s red card for tripping Mackreth when he was clean through on goal put a serious dent in Brig’s chances, but they were galvanised by it and when Tyrone Duffus turned into his own net from a corner, it was a goal they deserved.

“The penalty is a big turning point. It’s poor from us because we’ve squandered possession cheaply,” Carden said.

“The lad has come from the blindside and Scott has touched him. It’s baffling me at the minute.

“The goals are poor from our point of view but they’ve deserved it. They’ve forced the issue and they’ve got a point they shouldn’t have got.

“The concern for me is how cheaply we’re conceding goals.

“We’ve gone from being a team that’s solid and mean to one that gifts goals. We’re all over the place at the moment.”
