Shaymen crash to home defeat

Halifax Town 2 Altrincham 4

Town suffered yet another home horror in Blue Square Bet North as Altrincham returned across the Pennines with the points.

Damian Reeves scored twice in three minutes early in the first half to give the visitors the advantage.

Town clawed their way back into the game with good goals from Jamie Rainford and Simon Garner who fired home in he 41st minute.

But they were behind again before the break when Jack Redshaw made the most of some poor defending.

He scored his second to finally put the Shaymen out of their misery and it would have been worse had Simon Eastwood not saved Reeves’s late spot kick.
