Lee Casswell handed starts in defence to Aden Johnson and Doug Price with Sean Kinsella getting the nod in midfield.
An already boggy pitch got even more difficult with constant rain throughout the game but to their credit both sides served up some entertaining football.
Liam Shotton had a shot from a tight angle comfortably saved in the 12th minute and then on 20 minutes Dan Shelley’s 25 yarder went just wide.
The Yellows then had a purple patch in which they should have taken the lead. Ben Chapman made a good low save to push away a skimming Gerard Kinsella effort after 27 minutes.
Three minutes later Ben Wharton was through but he shot wide of the target and then Chapman was called into action again when Scott Metcalfe was denied by the keepers legs.
Wharton then flashed another shot across goal and Metcalfe drilled a cross right across goal that no-one was able to put the final touch to.
Blues hit back on 38 minutes when Shotton’s effort from 15 yards cannoned back off the underside of the bar and then Tim Grice was denied twice in a minute by good saves from the keeper just before the break.
The second half provided much less of an attacking spectacle as the pitch deteriorated further, but Warrington scored the all-important goal on 78 minutes when Rhys Thompson was dispossessed by Metcalfe who ran in on goal and fired low and hard past Chapman into the corner of the net.
Dan Shelley had a late chance for an equaliser but his curling shot went just wide of the post.
Overall an improved performance from Leek, but still a third consecutive defeat and for a side that were full of goals, Blues boss Casswell must be a little concerned that his side have failed to find the back of the net in close on 4 hours of play.
