WITTON Albion will be fed up with the sight of penalties.

A 34th-minute spot kick from Rob Wilson was sufficient to knock them out of the FA Trophy at Lancaster City today.

In midweek Carl Macauley's side bowed out of the Cheshire Senior Cup 4-3 on penalties against 1874 Northwich.

This was a much-changed side fielded by Albion at the Giant Axe though and it was a much improved performance from Albion than in the 3-1 home league loss to the Dolly Blues earlier this month.

Chris Renshaw, James Short, Josh Wardle, Liam Goulding, Danny McKenna and Connor Heath all returned to the starting line-up.

The contest, between the third and 10th-placed sides in the BetVictor Northern Premier, was a tight affair with few clear-cut chances.

Witton keeper Renshaw had one save to make from Wilson before his penalty success and he produced a top-notch save at the death too before Lancaster's sixth match without defeat was confirmed.

As for Albion, they put the Dolly Blues under increasing pressure in the second period and came closest to equalising when hitting the bar in the 71st minute.

Macauley's men will no longer be in action on Tuesday night.

Their opponents, Radcliffe, were not able to play their FA Trophy home tie with FC United of Manchester today and so that will take precedence in midweek.

This means Witton's next game will be away to Morpeth Town on Saturday, November 2, 3pm.
