Match Report

Summary:
FC were very unlucky, Lee Ellis hit the post and the cross bar, and Mark Hendstock and Michael Sullivan both had goals disallowed for offside.
In the end it came down to the weather and Altrincham benefited twice from balls sticking in the mud. First their striker latched onto a ball that should have ran out of play to finish with a low shot into the far corner and then almost immediately from the restart Callum Rothwell looked to have equalised but his effort stuck in the mud on the goal line and it allowed Alty to clear their lines.
