Farsley extended their unbeaten run to five games with a scrappy 1-0 win over FA Cup giant killers Warrington Town.

Warrington dominated the first half and had an early chance when Scott Metcalfe saw Tom Taylor off his line and attempted an audacious lob that was tipped over by the alert Taylor. Minutes later Metcalfe had another opportunity when the ball fell to him in the box and his close range effort was pushed to safety by Taylor.

Farsley improved drastically in the second half, after having no shots in the first. And they were rewarded just after the hour mark when Aiden Savory’s delicious chip was controlled and fired into the far corner by Adam Priestley. A calamitous defensive error almost gifted Farsley a 2-0 lead when a miscommunication saw James McCarten bundle the ball past his onrushing keeper and onto the post, before it was eventually cleared to safety. Moments later a Kyle Hancock cross was blazed over by Robbie O’Brien, with the goal gaping. As time ran out Priestley had a chance to wrap up the victory when he headed a loose ball straight at Wires ‘keeper Karl Wills.
