WARRINGTON Rylands’ win at Guiseley to all but seal a play-off spot has been hailed as “outstanding” by player/interim co-manager Sam Wilson.

Blues’ 2-0 win in West Yorkshire means that while they are not yet mathematically assured of a top-five spot, they need only one more win to seal the deal.

Second-half goals from Mo Touray and Dan Cockerline proved the difference at a windy Nethermoor against a Lions side who parted company with manager Andy Welsh in midweek.

As such, Wilson says his side were expecting a reaction but declared himself delighted by how his players dealt with it.

“It was an outstanding performance,” he said.

“This is a tough place to come as they are a really strong side. They’ve had some good results here this season, which is proved by the position they were in before today.

“They changed their manager this week so there was always going to be a reaction, but we were outstanding and nullified their threat.

“We looked really dangerous from 20 minutes onwards and I’m so proud of them.”

Touray’s goal midway through the second half broke the game open in Rylands’ favour as he netted emphatically following good work from his strike partner Djavan Pedro.

It is now six goals in the eight games Wilson and fellow player/co-manager Dean Furman have taken charge of for Touray.

“I thought he could have had more, but they are the standards we expect of Mo,” Wilson said.

“A special mention to DJ (Pedro) for the part he played in that – he held it up in the initial phase to get us up the pitch and then it was his decision-making to leave the ball for Mo to take the shot.

“Mo’s execution of it was then fantastic – it was a fantastic team goal.

“We work really hard on those things so it’s not a fluke. The players have got unbelievable ability and it’s nice to see it come to fruition.”

Cockerline then made sure of the points in injury time with one of his first touches after coming off the bench, lashing home after a cross was nodded down and found him unmarked in the six-yard box.
