WARRINGTON Town boss Mark Beesley was left frustrated after his side failed to make the most of a promising first half against Stafford Rangers.

Leading at half-time thanks to Isaac Buckley-Ricketts’ goal, Yellows were in a strong position to further cement their play-off spot and keep the pressure on those above.

However, they were pegged back by Alex-Ray Harvey’s superb volley which means Town have now taken just one point from their past three home games.

Given his side came under late pressure, Beesley said the result was “a point gained” in the end but reflected on several chances missed before the break.

“I look at it as a point gained. In the last couple of minutes, they put us under pressure with their set pieces, their throw-ins and the wind,” he said.

“If you’d have asked me at half-time, I would have said it’s two points dropped as I thought we played well in the first half.

“We should have been two or three up but there was poor decision-making and finishing when we had great chances.

“We nullified their threat in the first half and I think if one of our chances goes in, it’s a different game.

“Fair play to them – they came out and had a go in the second half, used the wind to their advantage and it’s a great strike.”
