Thackley took the lead after only six minutes when Nathan Hotte conceded a penalty, converted by Mike Garrod.

Loanee George Waring equalised after 28 minutes when he converted Ross Barrows’ cross.

Ben Tomlinson put Town into the lead on 35 minutes with a shot from the edge of the area, but Thackley levelled just before half-time when Joe Hughes scored with a header.

But Tomlinson got the winner with his second of the game midway through the second-half with a low shot.
