Match Report
An inspired opening 20 minutes left Warrington with a mountain to climb after Renee Mike opened his goalscoring account for the season with a seventh minute strike. Dom Stockdale headed a second five minutes later after a fine flowing move. Things appeared bleak for Town when Brownbill was sent off for a cynical foul as the last man but the visitors managed to pull a goal back just before half time after a long range from Owen Ellis effort was fumbled by Tompos.

Warrington pushed hard for an equaliser in the early exchanges but the extra man began to tell and Jimmy Rothwell burst through and finished coolly for United taking advantage of some tired legs among the Warrington defence.

Matt Hampson was awarded his fifth man of the match of the season and his second in consecutive games after running the midfield with Jamie Rother. Renee Mike, Dom Stockdale and Mike Sacks also performed very well.
