WITTON Albion closed to within two points of a play-off place as Scarborough Athletic were dispatched at Wincham Park yesterday.

Billy Smart's long-ranger put Carl Macauley's men on course for a 3-1 victory, with Will Jones' deflected free kick doubling the lead on the hour mark.

James Walshaw pulled a goal back for the visitors – forcing the ball over the line after Albion stopper Chris Renshaw had parried Michael Coulson's effort – but that hope lasted just five minutes.

After Kyle Sambor drew a foul from Isaac Assenso inside the Boro box, Adam Anson coolly dispatched the penalty to restore the hosts' two-goal cushion and it proved decisive.
