WITTON Albion returned to winning ways in style at fellow play-off chasers Clitheroe.

Tom Pope, Elliot Rokka and Connor Hughes scored the goals in a 3-0 win in front of 755 fans at EcoGiants Stadium.

Jon Macken’s men stay fifth in Northern Premier League West as a result but have given themselves some daylight on some of the rivals beneath them, although they have played one or two games more than some.

Albion’s fifth win in sixth outings was on the way when Pope (14mins) and Rokka (25mins) netted from corners in the first half.

Clitheroe’s Massey hit the post in the 58th minute but Hughes’ strike four minutes later killed the game off.

Home player Danny Wilkins was sent off in the fourth minute of added time.

Witton, who were beaten 3-2 at home by Prescot Cables last week, return to action at Hanley Town on Saturday, March 16.

1874 Northwich’s home game against Hanley, Northwich Vics’ home clash with Shifnal Town and Barnton’s trip to Eccleshall were all postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

It is the fifth postponement in a row for Vics, who have not played a competitive game for a month.

1874 visit Northern Premier League West leaders Leek Town next Saturday, while Vics will try again on Tuesday at home to Stone Old Alleynians and then host Atherstone Town on Saturday Second-from-bottom Winsford United were defeated 2-1 at table-toppers Stockport Town in North West Counties League Division One South.

Daniel McLaughlin put the hosts in front after eight minutes but the second half started great for Blues when they equalised from a setpiece.

But William Calligan netted the winner for Town in the 61st minute.
