ABOUBACAR Sanogo came off the bench to score the winner as Warrington Town returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at Barwell.

Sanogo’s cross from the right looped over ‘keeper Max Smith-Varnam, 12 minutes after he had replaced Josh Hine.

The three points was the most important thing for Paul Carden’s side following Tuesday night’s disappointing 2-0 defeat at Ashton, their only defeat away from home this season.

Indeed Barwell has proven a tricky place to go this season, with league leaders Shaw Lane succumbing to a 1-0 defeat there last weekend.

The return of Jamie McDonald up front brought a notable improvement for the Yellows, who started the game by creating a number of chances.

It took til the 75th minute for them to break the deadlock, through Sanogo, though Smith-Varnam walking away with the man of the match reward perhaps reflects his contribution.

Barwell: Smith-Varnam, Percival, Nisevic, Stanley, Townsend, Julien, Story, Heath, Oerry, Bates, Stenson. Subs: Seal, Castle, Whitmore, Hadland, Barlone.

Warrington Town: McMillan, Goulding, McKeown, Gumbs, McCarten, Higgins, Hine, Richards, McDonald, Williams, Bakkor. Subs: Kinsella, Carden, Sanogo, Hughes, Davis.
