Four wins in five puts the Hatters in touch of the table toppers
STOCKPORT County moved into fifth and just five points off the top of the National League with a 2-1 victory at AFC Fylde.
The Hatters had to come from behind to achieve their first double of the season after Ryan Croasdale opened the scoring for the hosts in the sixth minute.
However, second-half goals from Sam Walker and Dan Cowan ensured Jim Gannon’s team made it four wins from their last five league games.
Goalscorer Cowan said: “If we keep the positivity and buzz around the camp, I don’t know why we shouldn’t be looking up.”
Altrincham made it two wins from two since after three second-half goals meant they beat high-flying Southport in the National League North.
A John Johnston brace and a Josh Hancock strike at Moss Lane means the Robins are now 14th in the table with three games in hand over several play-off hunting rivals.
Curzon Ashton gained a much-needed three points after a 1-0 victory at third-place Chester.
An Andy Halls header means the Nash moved up to 18th and are now seven points above Blyth, who occupy the last relegation place.
A 90th-minute Tunde Owolabi goal saw FC United beat local rivals Ashton United at Hurst Cross in the Northern Premier Division.
The Rebels took the lead through Regan Linney before substitute Aaron Smith levelled for the hosts.
However, Owolabi’s scrappy winner means Michael Clegg is still waiting for his first points as Ashton boss.
