WARRINGTON Rylands belied another red card to bounce back to winning ways.

Dave McNabb's men were 2-0 victors over Kendal Town at Gorsey Lane, with Ste Milne and Luke Wall on the scoresheet.

That was despite a second-half red card for Warren Gerrard, who was also dismissed during Saturday's defeat to City of Liverpool.

Chris Wraighte scored a late consolation for Kendal, but it proved immaterial.

Here's Garry Clarke's verdict on the game...

AFTER suffering their first defeat in the NPL West on Saturday, Warrington Rylands were in need of a morale-boosting win when lowly Kendal Town visited Gorsey Lane.

Having survived an initial burst of pressure, Rylands soon gained control against opposition who rarely troubled goalkeeper Graeme McCall, whose only first half save came from a Greg McCarragher header from a corner in the 25th minute.

Opposite number Oliver Lombard was much busier as shots rained in on his goal and crosses flew into the Kendal penalty area.

Ste Milne went close on a number of occasions without finding the target as the Kendal keeper pulled off several good saves.

Milne also struck the post and George Hassall scrapped the top of the crossbar amongst many attempts Rylands had at the visitors goal.

Rylands finally made the breakthrough three minutes into the second half.

Clearing a Kendal free kick from their area, Rylands played the ball long down the left wing and Callum Dolan picked out Milne with a pass inside.

Surrounded by defenders, Milne took his time, picked his spot and fired it out of the reach of Lombard in to the bottom corner.

A couple of minutes later, Rick Smith almost made it two but his powerful header from a corner was kept out by a good save from Lombard.

Kendal failed to clear their lines with the ball falling to Owen Robinson on the edge of the area, but his shot flew wide.

A competitive, hard-fought game boiled over on the hour mark when Rylands Warren Gerrard slid slightly late into a 50-50 challenge, prompting players from both sides to come together in a bout of pushing and shoving.

When order was restored, Gerrard was issued with his second red card of the week.

Eight minutes later, Luke Wall doubled Rylands’ advantage.

He floated a free kick from out on the right wing into the Kendal area, Lombard came to collect the ball but as it dropped out of the night sky he could only help it on its way into his net.

Referee Tom Swift showed his second straight red card of the evening in the 90th minute when Kendal captain McCarragher let his frustrations get the better of his as he hacked down a Rylands player from behind.

McCarragher had been Kendal’s most dangerous player forcing McCall into a couple of good saves in the second half.

Kendal scored a consolation goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time through Chris Wraighte, but Rylands held on for the win which moves them up to third in the table.
