WITTON arrived at South Elmsall at 7.20pm last Tuesday and were two goals down inside the first four minutes.
Richard Tracey and Paul Palmer were the home scorers but Albion reduced the arrears in the 21st minute when Chris Gahgan converted a Mike Moseley cross.
When Steve Heath was sent off on 36 minutes for elbowing Griff Jones, Albion ought to have been able to wrestle at least a point from the game.
But they had still not found their rhythm and Frickley defended well, Gaghan and Alex Brown going closest to levelling.
Witton: Kennedy; Spearritt, Barras, Pritchard, Brownhill; Gaghan (Peers 55), Connors, Lloyd, Alex Brown; G Jones (Warlow 70), Moseley.
Star Man: Lian Brownhill on top of his game
