FT - Alty 3-1 Farsley - a great response to the heavy loss on Monday from Parky's men and the only real minor negative from an excellent performance was the failure to keep a clean sheet. Otherwise there were plenty of positives and the boys showed great character to bounce back. Thanks for joining us!
91' An overhead kick by goalscorer Syers flies wide for Farsley.....
Jordan Hulme is named man of the match but it would be rude not to mention the performances of the attacking trio behind him as JJ, Hemmings and Ceesay produced superb displays today.
87' Farsley are piling the pressure on to try reduce the arrears even further as Danny Ellis fires over the bar
83' Booking for White
82' GOAL! Alty 3-1 Farsley. Richards does well down the right for Farsley, gets a good cross in and Syers gets ahead of his man and heads home for Farsley to give them a glimmer of hope.
Those quickfire goals have taken the wind out of Farsley's sails and Alty are cruising now
74' Triple change for Farsley as Hayhurst, Cartman and Higgins all go off and they are replaced by Syers, B. Atkinson, Ellis
72' Richman goes off and Branson comes on
68' Ceesay comes off after a superb performance and is replaced by Tom Peers! Welcome back Yusifu!
67' GOAL! Jordan Hulme gets his second and it is JJ again who chases down a lost cause, plays the ball in as Ceesay controls it for Hulme to hammer in from ten yards out and that should be that!
64' Sean Williams is booked
61' GOAL! Johnston gets a cross in and Jordan Hulme heads home from the edge of the six-yard box.....and finally Alty 2-0 Farsley!
56' Shot by Johnny Johnston is cleared off the line as Alty are piling on the pressure as Ceesay creates the opening. Alty remain just the solitary goal ahead somehow but a goal is surely coming.
51' Yusifu Ceesay enjoys his best moment of the game as he produces one of his elusive trademarks runs but he is thwarted by Higgins and Allan who block his shot.
Sean Williams steps up and Elliot Wynne saves to his left and pushes it out for a corner.....
47' Penalty to Alty.....as Mullarkey is fouled in the box.....
We are back underway at The J.Davidson....there are no changes. Attendance is confirmed as 913 - thank you everybody for coming along!
HT - Alty 1-0 Farsley - A solid half all round for Alty in a relatively uneventful first half. The Robins have attacked well with plenty of pace, and Tony Thompson has hardly been threatened at the back. Stay with us ahead of the second half!
Farsley are targeting set pieces to cause Alty problems here and all three of their central defenders are piling forward at every opportunity.
39' Another bright entry into the final third with Ash Hemmings combining nicely with Hampson down the left but the danger fizzles. Hemmings has been a revelation in that role today and at the heart of all of Alty's good play.
37' A good counter attack for Alty culminates in another effort for Jordan Hulme but he has to rush his attempt before the defenders close him and he fails to really connect well enough to trouble Wynne.
29' Ash Hemmings has another attempt from long range but this one goes wide. Ash is playing with plenty of confidence after that goal....it's good to have him back!
26' Another header wide by Spencer and the fact he has now had a couple of headers will be an area the Alty backline will want to address as this match goes on.
Farsley have responded well in fairness to going behind and have had a good chunk of the ball themselves but the clear cut chances have yet to really come.
The right wing continues to be a major area of profit for Alty as JJ is flying and combining well with Hemmings.
17' Goal! Alty 1-0 Farsley Celtic.....a moment of magic by Ashley Hemmings playing in the number ten role, he picks the ball up and curls home an outstanding long range effort!
16' First real moment of threat from the visitors as JImmy Spencer heads a cross from Cartman wide but from a great position and he should have done better there.
11' Jordan Hulme gets a shot on goal but he shoots straight at Wynne as Alty look to increase the tempo here.
7' First corner for Alty......as the Golf Road faithful make their voices heard. The cross is punched clear by Elliot Wynne and the danger is cleared.
4' A positive start for Alty who have enjoyed the greater possession and John Johnston tries to fashion a chance for Jordan Hulme but his pass is just out of the striker's reach.
Off we go!
The players come out of the tunnel and kick off is just a couple of minutes away....
