MICHAEL Clegg’s substitutions paid off handsomely to help Warrington Rylands to victory on Saturday afternoon.

With the game in its final stages, Adamah Sidibeh broke the deadlock against Morpeth Town a little over 10 minutes after coming off the bench.

Another substitute in Edy Maieco rounded off the scoring in injury time as Blues jumped up to second in the Northern Premier League Premier Division table.

"It was a stop-start game – there’s been a lot of bookings but I don’t think there’s been a bad foul in the game," Clegg said post-match.

"It’s becoming a real bug bear of mine – the games become stop-start and there’s free kicks for anything and everything.

"It’s frustrating for two teams who wanted to get the ball down and play football, but we were deserving winners in my opinion.

"Fitness levels are really good – in the three wins we’ve had, we’ve gone in at 0-0 and ground out wins.

"We just have to keep banging the drum of getting bodies forward and being intense.

"I’m really happy with where we are from a squad point of view – subs have been really key for us and I’m really pleased for Adamah and Edy.

"It’s a squad game- and everyone’s got a huge part to play."

Clegg’s side are back in action with a trip to promotion favourites Macclesfield on Monday.

Warrington Rylands: Pilling, Smith, Swaby-Neavin, Neild, Butler, Furman, Hardcastle, Hough, Piggott (Sidibeh), Touray (Maieco), Uche (Bakkor). Subs not used: Baillie, Kyfein
