Parkin­son full of praise for Robins in vic­tory over Gateshead

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT - By DAVE CROWTHER-GREEN

AL­TRIN­CHAM man­ager Phil Parkin­son praised his side’s ‘pro­fes­sional per­for­mance’ af­ter their 3-0 win over Gateshead at Moss Lane on Tues­day.

The re­sult saw the Robins record back-to-back league wins for the first time this sea­son, fol­low­ing their 5-1 win over Here­ford on Satur­day.

“A re­ally pro­fes­sional per­for­mance, the lads were su­perb, car­ried out the in­struc­tions and ex­e­cuted the tac­tics su­perbly as they have done for the last two months,” said Parkin­son.

“Un­for­tu­nately there’s been a lot of cup games, so our league po­si­tion hasn’t been great, but that gives us a lit­tle bit of breath­ing space. We’re now look­ing up the league rather than be­hind us.

“It was re­ally pleas­ing to see that lads could recog­nise the sit­u­a­tion they were in and press but also be com­pact when we needed to be.”

Striker Jor­dan Hulme was again on the score­sheet af­ter his hat trick at the week­end and the Robins’ boss was quick to praise his re­cent form.

He said: “He took it re­ally well but then again, that’s what he does. He scores goals.

“When he’s through, you fancy him nine times out of ten to fin­ish and that’s what he did.”

Al­trin­cham now face another two fix­tures away from the league in both the FA Cup and Tro­phy, which Parkin­son be­lieves high­lighted the im­por­tance of Tues­day’s win.

He added: “There’s some mas­sive games com­ing up, so it was re­ally im­por­tant that we re-fo­cused on the league.

“But now we’ve got to go again in the cups be­cause we want to have fight on all fron­tiers.”
