WARRINGTON Town were held to a draw by Radcliffe in a battle of two in-form sides at Cantilever Park.

Both of the Northern Premier League Premier Division's leading goalscorers were on target, with Bobby Grant's penalty earning the visitors a point after Jordan Buckley had headed Town in front just after half time.

Yellows stretched their unbeaten league run to 10 matches but missed the chance to put more pressure on the sides above them in the Northern Premier League promotion race.

THIS was perhaps Warrington Town’s season in a microcosm.

On top in the game and on course for victory, only for them to be pegged back for another draw.

While their unbeaten run now stretches to 10 league games and that will keep them there or thereabouts, too many of those have been stalemates.

If they are to catch the four sides above them, who are setting a relentless pace, they need to start turning one point into three more often.

Those that braved the chilly conditions will have left satisfied that they had seen a good game of football between two sides in form.

For Mark Beesley and his players, though, there will be an element of frustration.

After Bobby Grant’s penalty – contentious as it may have been – had levelled matters midway through the second half, their momentum completely deflated.

From that point, they did not really do enough to win the game.

The award of the penalty will have rankled having had an appeal for a similar challenge on Stefan Mols waved away by referee Martyn Mitchell shortly before, but it affected them more than it should have.

Before then, they had started the second half with intent and purpose, deservedly took the lead and had chances to extend it.

In the battle between the division’s two hottest strikers, it ended level with Grant and Jordan Buckley both netting while being well marshalled by their opposition defences.

Buckley arguably made more impact as Grant was kept very quiet by Evan Gumbs, who put in another superb display in the heart of the Town defence.

Once Town had tweaked their midfield diamond to give them a little more width, Luke Duffy looked threatening on the left hand side – the only thing missing from his display was a goal he would have deserved.

Still, their last defeat is getting further into the rear-view mirror and as a defining period in their season approaches, Yellows are proving to be an incredibly tough nut to crack.
