Altrincham 1-0 Braintree Town

Altrincham climbed out of the Conference relegation zone with a hard-fought win over Braintree Town.

Midfielder Nicky Clee pounced on a rebound to slide home the only goal of the game midway through the first half.

Braintree started brightly and midfielder James Mulley hit the crossbar with a thumping drive.

The visitors twice came close to an equaliser in the closing stages, as Sam Habergham and Kenny Davis both fired inches wide of the post.
