What made you most happy about that performance? 

We did the right things in the big moments, like when Greg [Hall] stood up and made a brilliant save when he was one-on-one with [Dylan] Vassallo in the first-half. 

I was encouraged by the grit and determination we showed to stay in the game and to continue battling even though we didn’t create as much as I’d have liked. 

I’ve always said that clean-sheets guarantee a positive result and for that reason those lads deserve credit because they defended superbly while working so hard. 

Was a draw the right result then? 

We certainly didn’t deserve more than a point, and it’s fair to say that Warrington posed more of a threat than we did. 

However it was a hard-earned draw after having our backs against the wall during the closing stages. 

But we’re organised as a team without the ball; we close down space, and we’re disciplined with our positioning so we make it hard for opponents to break us down. 

Did it surprise you that Warrington played at such a low tempo? 

Maybe. I’d say that was down to how we set up. 

There were times we might have pressed the ball, but we had to be selective with that. 

I hear people say, or read what they write, when they argue that teams in our position have nothing to play for and go through the motions at the end of the season.  

Well, no Witton side I manage will do that. 

This is another example of Witton doing themselves justice against a top-six side isn’t it? 

I always say, and continue to, that what separates us from the teams ahead of us is the size of our squad. 

It makes a huge difference. 

Teams with bigger budgets have a bigger group than we do, that’s the reality. 

There was a point a couple of months ago where I had the names of seven or eight players written down on a whiteboard in my office who were all out injured. 

It was tough, and we've had to rely on loan signings to help us. 

But we’ve always tried to go toe-to-toe with the best teams in the league, and we’re proud of our record in those games. 

Tell me about Luke Offord’s performance 

He’s a fantastic player, and a great lad. 

Gary [Martindale] did that deal with Crewe’s manager, David Artell, and they really believe in his ability. 

He’s got everything; he can play at full-back, centre-half or as a holding midfielder and every single time he’s shown his class. 

His marks are eight and nine out of 10 each week. 

He’s pitted himself against Tony Gray, a player who has scored goals for fun at every level he’s played at during a brilliant career. 

And he’s kept him out of the game. 

Did you think you might nick a goal at the end? 

We really wanted to! 

Our substitutions were positive; we put on Will Jones, changing to two up front, to try and ask a different question of their defence. 

We felt that was a brave change, one that we hoped would perhaps swing the game for us, but it wasn’t to be. 

However we’re still going home with a positive result.
