Altrincham 1-2 AFC Telford United

Already-relegated Telford made it three wins in a row as they beat Altrincham at Moss Lane.

Tony Gray fired Telford ahead when he curled in a left-footed effort for his 19th goal of the season after collecting a rebound.

Adam Farrell made it two when he was allowed to tap in Sam Smith's cross, as the Bucks continued their revival.

Altrincham pulled a goal back when Nicky Clee lashed home, but Telford held on to go four games unbeaten.

AFC Telford United manager Steve Kittrick talking to BBC Radio Shropshire:

"I spoke today with the players about being positive and being stable - and we've got a good result today."

"Altrincham are a good side and we knew it was going to be tough first twenty minutes - but we got in front and got the goal."

"With some players you have to get inside their heads and make them believe they can win - you have some players who have learnt whilst I've been here and they are developing."
