Welling United 0-1 Altrincham

Sub Ryan Crowther broke the defensive resolve of 10-man Welling to give Altrincham a first win in five games.

Crowther fired home from the edge of the box as Welling suffered an eighth successive defeat in Loui Fazakerley's first game as caretaker boss.

Home goalkeeper Jonathan Henly had earlier saved well from Damian Reeves, Jordan Sinnott and Kyle Perry.

But Welling had Joe Healy sent off for a two-footed foul on James Lawrie after 54 minutes and were unable to hold out.

Aristide Bessele had a late chance to salvage a point for Welling, but his header from Dominic Vose's cross was kept out by Stuart Coburn, who was making a club record 679th appearance.

The result left them in the relegation zone, four points behind Alfreton in 20th place, while Altrincham climbed two places to 13th.
