Newly installed Shaw Lane boss Paul Quinn was in dreamland when his new team dominated throughout against fellow high-flying Warrington.Not many would have predicted what turned out to be a comfortable victory for the home side. Two early goals put the visitors on the back foot and The Ducks didn’t look back from then on.
“It was important to get that first win under the belt,” Beamed Quinn after his first match in charge.“I thought the application and attitude was superb from the start today and I’m absolutely delighted.”
The opening goal came after just five minutes when Nicky Walker latched onto a ball by Alex Byrne.Walker weaved into the box past Liam Goulding and Walker’s squared ball towards the penalty spot was tucked away by in form striker Chib Chilaka.Veteran midfielder David Norris made it two on 16 minutes. Walker involved again and in a similar fashion he set up the former Leeds man for his third of the campaign.
Warrington couldn’t break through the back line of Shaw Lane throughout the game.Their best chance falling to Tony Gray whose overhead kick sailed past the goal failing to trouble Jon Stewart. Top scorer Paul Clayton added to Warrington’s woes with a third eight minutes before half time.
Chilaka’s effort from the edge of the box was parried by Anthony McMillan to the feet of Clayton who needed to dink it over the keeper from close range. The introduction of former Leeds and Doncaster player Billy Paynter didn’t invigorate the yellows in the second half. It was Spencer Harris’ turn to get on the score sheet three minutes from the restart. Byrne down the left saw his cross played back to the midfielder by Chilaka and the shot left McMillan flat footed as he could only watch another go past him.Frustration crept in and on 53 minutes Jack Higgins was given his marching orders for a needless high tackle on Clayton.Three minutes from full time Rob Orlando-Young found himself fouled in the area and Byrne beat McMillan on the rebound after the keeper saved the initial penalty.
“From minute one I thought Shaw Lane had nous and know how,” accepted Warrington boss Paul Carden. “They probably won’t play another game where it’s an easier victory for them and that’s massively disappointing as we’re supposed to be a side up there challenging.”
