FC Halifax Town 1-3 Altrincham

Nicky Clee
Nicky Clee scored his second goal of the season.

Second-placed FC Halifax slipped to a shock home defeat against struggling Altrincham in the Conference.

Nicky Clee struck first for the visitors when he shot through a sea of bodies 11 minutes before the break.

James Lawrie doubled their lead when he controlled on his chest before firing past Halifax goalkeeper Matt Glennon.

Altrincham added a third four minutes later as Kyle Perry converted a breakaway attack, before Scott Boden nodded in a consolation for Halifax.

The home side's defeat allowed Barnet to open up a five-point gap at the top of the Conference, while back-to-back victories for Altrincham lifts them out of the relegation zone.
