Brad­ford is­sues con­tinue in loss

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Tom Coates

ALTRINCHAM con­demned Brad­ford to back-to-back de­feats thanks to a win­ning strike from sub­sti­tute Max Har­rop.

The vis­i­tors took an early lead through Thomas Peers, who poked over the line af­ter a John John­ston cross caused chaos.

Steven Drench was, how­ever, forced to thwart Joshua Han­cock af­ter the for­ward found space in the box and struck with venom.

Altrincham stop­per El­liot Wynne then made an im­pres­sive stop him­self, push­ing Shane Kil­lock’s closerange strike wide.

Kil­lock even­tu­ally got the bet­ter of Wynne, vol­ley­ing into the roof of the net.

Seven min­utes af­ter the res­tart, Conor Bran­son latched on to Jake Beesley’s low cross and fired past Wynne.

The Robins re­sponded just two min­utes later as John John­ston’s de­flected ef­fort wrong-footed Drench.

Altrincham re­mained on the front foot and soon took the lead when sub­sti­tute Har­rop ri­fled into the bot­tom cor­ner.

The hosts des­per­ately hunted for an equaliser but Adam Nowakowski and Shane Kil­lock both flicked head­ers wide of the post in the lat­ter stages.
