HE poor form of Al­trin­cham con­tin­ued this week­end against AFC Telford as the Robins lost 2-1.

Goals from Adam Far­rell and Tony Gray in the 39th and 53rd minute were enough to see off Al­trin­cham de­spite a late con­so­la­tion goal from Nicky Clee.

The first goal came when a mix-up be­tween Al­trin­cham play­ers, Wil­liams and Sin­nott, al­lowed Gray to pick up the ball, play a one two, and slot home com­fort­ably past Dave Par­ton from around 12 yards. The home side dou­bled their lead just af­ter the in­ter­val when a way­ward Sam Smith shot found its way to the feet of Adam Far­rell who had all the time in the world to steady him­self and put the ball in the back of the net.

Al­trin­cham threat­ened a late come­back, de­spite cre­at­ing very lit­tle all game, when Nicky Clee volleyed home from around 15 yards out af­ter a knock down from sub­sti­tute Kyle Perry at the back post.

Af­ter the game Robins boss, Lee Sin­nott, said: “We were a bit flat to­day and I’m dis­ap­pointed in the re­sult, as well as the past two games against Torquay and Gateshead. But, in truth, if you’d have told me we’d be safe with four games of the sea­son left then we’d have snatched your hand off.”
