Warrington Rylands manager David McNabb notes pleasing Glossop North End win as three additions made in ‘lacking’ area

Kane Drummond celebrates scoring for Warrington Rylands during win over Glossop.

Warrington Rylands manager David McNabb was pleased with the reaction from his side to bounce back from the defeat to Kidsgrove with the win over Glossop North End.

Kane Drummond was the pick of the goal scorers grabbing two as Adam Buxton and David Webb contributed to the comprehensive win at Gorsey Lane.

It keeps them in the hunt for the title and automatic promotion run with the gap just seven points.

Prior to the win, Rylands welcomed three new additions as Will Appleyard, Johnny Hunt and Dean Furman all bolstered the ranks at the FA Vase holders.

But for McNabb, he was happy with the response and performance as they returned to winning ways.

“I thought we were very good on the day, we needed a reaction from the performance last week and the lads started well, kept the ball well and worked hard,” he told Off The Park.

“A really good all-around performance. 

“It wasn’t the result for Kidsgrove, it was the performance, it was a bit lacklustre, lacked a little bit of intensity.

“So we said to the lads we needed a reaction and you can’t control the result but you can control what you put into it, we asked them to control what’s within their control and they absolutely did that.

“Some of the football they played was really good and the result was an outcome of that. 

“It was a really good game for the attacking players, the movement was really good. To score four goals in this league against any team is a really good achievement.

“Glossop, in the form they’ve been in, they were on the same points as us in terms of the form guide so to go and blow them out the water was really, really good. 

“We were probably lacking in a couple of different areas, obviously Will’s [Appleyard] come in to challenge Graeme McCall and to push us on long term.

“We’ve been looking for competition in the left-back area for some time and I think Johnny [Hunt] is a player we tried to bring in during pre-season but he wasn’t available at the time and we managed to get him in now. He’s got really good experience, playing a lot of Conference football and the league as well.

“I think Dean Furman was a no-brainer really, we’d heard he might be leaving Alty [Altrincham] a few weeks back and we wanted to speak to him, as soon as we seen the news we were straight on the phone to arrange a meeting, we did that, luckily he’s chosen our project over the next couple of years. 

“We can’t get carried away, Clitheroe are a fantastic side, got good individuals.

“They’re another one of these sides that never say die, got a good team spirit.

“They’re a very very good side, we’ll have to be at our best to get anything from the game but after Saturday’s performance we’re confident going into the game.”
