Tarporley Vics 1 Warrington Town Res 2
VICS’ promotion push suffered a blow on Saturday.
Steve Lloyd’s side were slow out of the blocks and the visitors took the lead on 22 minutes.
Town hit Vics on the break as players were appealing for a free-kick in the build-up to the goal.
Vics pushed forward in the second-half but Town added a crucial second 20 minutes from time.
A wind-assisted cross into the penalty area found the back of the net via the underside of the crossbar.
Al Moore pulled a goal back with nine minutes remaining but it proved in vain.
Malpas 0 Grappenhall 0: A make-shift Malpas strike-force were frustrated in front of goal against mid-table Grappenhall.
Player-boss Robbie McWilliams and Richard Sadler couldn’t find a way past the resilient visitors’ defence in a game of few chances.
Malpas were solid at the back and Edward Brownrigg in the home side’s goal was only called into action to make one save during the 90 minutes.
