WARRINGTON Town made it back-to-back victories by beating Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors arrived at Cantilever Park on a run of four straight wins but were comfortably beaten by Yellows, who move into the Northern Premier League Premier Division play-off spots.

Jordan Buckley scored for the fifth league game in a row, powering home a header from Sean Williams' cross to give Town a half-time lead.

Williams went from provider to scorer late on, converting a penalty after Matty Grivosti was barged over in the box.

Ben Hough wrapped up the scoring in injury time, finishing off after Grivosti had set him up.

ON paper, this was a fixture laced with difficulty for Warrington Town.

However, they made it look like anything but.

From the moment Jordan Buckley powered home an authoritative header early on, three points looked assured.

This was a display that brought back memories of this Town side in its pomp – striking and then seeing out games with composure and confidence.

Paul Carden spoke post-match about goalkeeper Dan Atherton having to make too many saves in recent weeks, but today he was a relative spectator.

Stalybridge – on a run of four straight wins and with in-form Salford loanee Marcus Dackers leading their line – had spells of pressures but very rarely threatened the Town goal.

Dackers himself – a tall, rangy frontman with a good skillset – looked the most likely but never really got chance to extend his good scoring form.

That was mostly down to him being shackled by a Town defence missing arguably its stand-out performer this season in Matty Regan, with Mitch Duggan stepping in admirably as he seems to do wherever he plays.

In front of them, Jay Harris and Sean Williams dictated the tempo and if Yellows can keep them together in the engine room, they will not lose too many midfield battles.

Another change in formation saw Town revert back to a more familiar 4-2-3-1 formation and it saw them look more threatening going forward.

Dom Reid and Matty Grivosti were brought in out wide and both had big impacts.

Reid’s pace and industry caused Celts left-back Ashley Smith-Brown endless issues while Grivosti won the penalty – converted by Williams – for the second goal and set up Ben Hough’s third, albeit inadvertently.

And when you have a striker in your possession in the form Buckley is currently in, you can always feel confident.

The challenge now for Yellows is to turn this upturn into an extended good run of form.
