WOODHOUSE put themselves back on track with a well-worked victory.

The visitors had beaten Woodhouse a few weeks earlier, but this time the home side were better organised and their performance pleased manager Matthew Town.

Although he was a little worried that they were unable to finish off many of the chances they created, he was pleased with the result.

“Three points was the main thing. It’s a real confidence booster and something to build on,” he said.

Joe Whitham was on hand, showing renewed confidence in his game, to latch on to a through ball and put it away after 20 minutes.

Soon after they doubled their lead when Stuart Parnell, put the ball away after a goalmouth scramble.

It was a goal which also boosted his confidence in his game after struggling somewhat in recent matches.

Woodhouse created more chances but were unable to add to their score before the break.

The visitors came out in determined mood and Woodhouse had to endure considerable pressure`and were caught out with a goal.

A nervy period followed and they were caught on the counter-attack by an equaliser five minutes from time.

With everyone expecting a draw, Woodhouse conjured a winner with the last move of the match. There was not even time to restart.

Mark Walters played a one-two with Danny Clarkson, who took on three players before crossing for the in-form Jordan Walker to put the ball in the net.

Darren Preece played a captain’s role at centre-back and was deservedly man of the match.
