Altrincham (7th) v AFC Telford United (14th)
Vanarama National League North
Tuesday 4th February 2019, 
19:45pm

With Saturday's entertaining 2-2 draw still very fresh in the minds of both sides and their supporters, the Robins and the Bucks will once again do battle this evening in a return Vanarama National League North fixture.

The game was originally scheduled to take place in October but incessant rain played havoc with the J. Davidson Stadium pitch.

It was rearranged for mid-December but postponed again due to both clubs being involved in the FA Trophy on December 17th

Phil Parkinson's men showed an abundance of character and spirit to fight back from behind, twice, and gain a deserved point where three would not have been unwarranted. Former Alty loanee, Brendon Daniels, gave Telford the lead on both occasions with very similar long distance crosses evading Tony Thompson, who otherwise, was called upon twice during the game and produced vital saves to deny Telford winger Ryan Barnett.

Alty's equalisers came through Lewis Walters, who calmly finished an exquisite Craig Mahon pass, and James Jones, who produced a magical long range looping effort 6 minutes from time.

Aiden Beswick spoke with Lewis Walters following the game.

Walters was introduced into the game early on following an injury to Tom Peers, who isn't expected to feature this evening with bruising around his ankle.

It is hoped that the Robins can continue their dominant run of home form with another victory this evening, and there's certainly cause to be confident. The manner in which they finished the game on Saturday bodes well for tonight, as they were entirely on the front foot and had the Bucks penned into their own half. Jordan Hulme produced a delightful cross for Josh Hancock but heroic defending denied Alty a last gasp winner.

Altrincham steamrollered AFC Telford United on Tuesday night, sweeping aside the Shropshire side with a magical display of attacking football on a night when the memory of Jordan Sinnott was honoured by 2 minutes of applause, one before the game & one during the game.

It was the Robins first home fixture since their former player tragically died after being attacked on a night out in Retford on January 25th.

The Robins Assistant Manager, Neil Sorvel, purred over the superb display:-

“Some of our attacking play was really exciting to watch & I told the players at the end of the game that I really enjoyed the performance. We have been on a good run since we went to Chester in the FA Cup in September & we need to keep our foot on the pedal now until the end of the season”

The first half was a real ding-dong affair with the woodwork being hit twice by each side, but Phil Parkinson’s men took a 2 goal advantage into the half-time break, courtesy of goals from Jordan Hulme & Josh Hancock. Hulme  finished exquisitely after being put clear by a wonderful through ball from debutant Dan Mooney, who had signed from Fleetwood Town for an undisclosed fee earlier in the day, whilst Hancock curled a delightful effort into the far corner after Jake Moult had seen his shot rebound off the inside of the post.

It was the same scoring combination early in the second period as Hancock waltzed through the Bucks’ defence to make it 3-0 just 12 seconds after the restart & Hulme made it 4 before the 50th minute.

An error from Shaun Densmore allowed Marcus Dinanga to finish clinically for the visitors in the 52nd minute before former Alty loanee, Brendon Daniels calmly sent Tony Thompson the wrong way with a 61st minute penalty.

Any jitters that the Robins may have been experiencing at 4-2 were soothed by Jake Moult’s 67th minute goal & that was that in a richly entertaining encounter.
