The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Tim Car­roll

IN-FORM Al­trin­cham con­tin­ued their march up the ta­ble with a de­served vic­tory.

An even and tightly con­tested first half gave way to a con­trolled sec­ond half per­for­mance by the vis­i­tors to earn three points that takes the Robins into fourth place.

Si­mon Rich­man cap­i­talised on a de­fen­sive mix-up to give Al­trin­cham a 39th-minute lead.

But Brack­ley found an in­stant re­ply as Glenn Walker headed low past Tony Thomp­son from Adam Walker’s cross to send the sides into the break on level terms.

Jor­dan Hulme saw his chance snuffed out mid­way through the half when well placed while Con­nor Franklin’s fierce ef­fort for Brack­ley de­flected off James Jones bring­ing a fine save from Thomp­son.

The Robins were again ahead af­ter 52 min­utes when full-back Andy White tucked his shot in­side Danny Lewis’ post from dis­tance.

This time there was no come-back from the Saints as Al­trin­cham man­aged the game well.

Hulme had only Lewis to beat late on to dou­ble his side’s lead but the Brack­ley keeper saved well. De­spite some late pres­sure Brack­ley could not find the equal­is­ing op­por­tu­nity as the vis­i­tors recorded a sixth win in seven games. STAR MAN: Jake Moult (Alty) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
