Warrington Rylands boss David McNabb offers thoughts on title race after leapfrogging Workington and Marine 

Warrington Rylands celebrate after scoring against Trafford.

Warrington Rylands manager David McNabb lavished praise on his players for another sparkling win.

Trafford were the latest victims to the Northern Premier League West’s top goalscorers as Rylands ran out 4-1 winners.

Andy Scarisbrick continued his rich vein of form with another brace as Charlie Doyle and David Webb helped take the FA Vase holders to the top of the table.

Although still not entirely in their hands with Workington and Marine both having games in hand to make up ground on McNabb’s side.

But for the Rylands’ boss he was reeling in enjoyment after their display in the win over Trafford as they travel to Kendal this weekend.

“I thought we were exceptional. First half, some of the football was breathtaking, really comfortable and at half-time, 2-0 up,” McNabb told Off The Park.

“Trafford come out and fair play to them, they really did well on the ball, a lot better in possession, they created a couple of chances and got the goal.

“But our lads took that on the chin and started to play again and finished the game with two goals, could’ve been more but really pleased with the performance overall and have to take it into next week. 

“We knew they we’re going to come flying out, they did that. We weathered the storm mainly in a good way, conceding the goal was a little disappointing but the lads reaction to it was brilliant. 

“The first goal was around 18 passes, the second was one or two more. Two really, really good goals and even the third and fourth, the movement, passing was really good. Bit disappointed to concede one, really good performance. 

“It’s massively rewarding for myself, the players and the coaches [to replicate what’s learned in training]. The coaches put so much time and effort into planning sessions to work on things we’re good at, we’re getting better at some of the things we’re not so good at so it’s pleasing to see their hard works coming to fruition.

“You can almost see on the player’s faces when they score, they really enjoy it because it’s transpiring from the training pitch into a matchday.”

Dean Furman was named man of the match during the triumph and McNabb was quick to heap praise on the midfielder, he added: “He’s been excellent, he’s been really good on the ball, calm and composed. It just gives us that option to play through at times, he’s very experienced and brilliant at what he does. 

“Obviously the games in hand are still massive, the way the two teams have performed all season, fair play, hats off to them they’ve been so consistent.

“It’s something we’ve probably lacked at times but I’m hoping we can find our consistency and make it as difficult and challenging for those two to see out what they’ve started. 

“I think it’s about getting the application and attitude right, it’s going to be a difficult trip, it’s one of the further ones away.

“They’re going to be a team fighting for every point because of the position they’re in, so we can’t go into the game thinking it’s going to be easy because it’s definitely not.

“Kendal are a good side, they’ve had a change over in manager and players but the side they’ve got now seems stronger than it has been at any other point this season, it’s going be a tough game but we’ll have to be at our best to get the three points.”
