Match ends, Altrincham 0, FC Halifax Town 1.
Halifax boosted their National League play-off hopes as Jack Earing scored the winner at Altrincham.
The striker's sweetly-hit effort from the edge of the box settled the contest just 12 minutes in as Town completed back-to-back wins.
Just four minutes earlier Altrincham's Josh Hancock had seen his shot turned onto the crossbar in a scrappy contest which saw few chances in the first half.
The home side had the better of the second period as Yusifu Ceesay's volley was saved by Halifax keeper Sam Johnson, and Ryan Colclough also saw an effort saved, but the visitors held on to win an attritional contest.
