RESULTS and not performances are all that matters now for Warrington Town.

The race for the BetVictor Northern Premier League Premier Division play-offs is getting tighter by the week, with 10 teams in the running for the end-of-season shake-up.

Town are sixth, one point outside the all-important top five, and visit third-place FC United of Manchester today, kick off 3pm.

Yellows have won at Broadhurst Park already this season – a 2-1 victory in the FA Cup in September – and by hook or by crook, manager Paul Carden says they need a repeat performance.

“With where we are at the minute, we have to get a result against whoever we play,” he said.

“We know how FC United like to play – they like to knock the ball around.

“They’ve had their wobbles of late, like everybody else it seems.

“After 30 games last season, us and Farsley had 65 points and South Shields had 63 in third.

“This year, South Shields are top but have to win their 30th game to get to 60.

“It will tell you that the league has either got more competitive or that the standard is not what it was. It could be a bit of both.

“From our point of view, though, we just need to win.

“I’ll be honest, I’m not bothered how it comes or what it looks like as long as we get the three points.

“I know we’ve got the least amount of losses, but we’ve dropped a lot of points.

“It’s no good not losing games if you’re 10-12 points off where you want to be.

“It’s vital that we put a run together now.”
