On arrival at the ground, I found the club officials very welcoming and I can recommend the locally made pies, writes Steve Hewitt.

The game itself saw home forward Marcus Marshall causing Warrington defenders no end of trouble with his efforts. I found it refreshing to hear the vocal support from the visiting fans in what was to be a good afternoon of football. The game was evenly contested and Jonny Margetts was unlucky to see his shot go agonisingly wide on 33 minutes. Despite no goals the first-half was entertaining.

HT 0-0.

No substitutions made at the break and again the game was as entertaining as the first-half. Jonny Margetts had another chance on 51 minutes but was again off target. The game changed on 63 minutes when appeals for a free kick were not given and Jack Dun n broke away to score for the visitors. Now chasing an equaliser, Matlock were caught on the break and a loose ball fell to Bohan Dixon who scored from close range.

Matlocks performance deserved some reward, yet on 86 minutes Russell Benjamin had a chance to score a third for the visitors. He spurned the opportunity and the game ended with Warrington settling for the two goals they had.
