Adam Bartlett 8 – made an outstanding save to deny Hancock at 0-0 and two or three more fine stops

Josh Law 5 – often seen back-pedalling towards his own goal as Altrincham raided down his flank

Joe Davis 6 – relatively solid before being somewhat wrong-footed for the opening goal

Kennedy Digie 6 – showed good powers of recovery to rescue one risky moment in possession, but generally combative

Sean Newton 5 – looked uncomfortable when right-winger Johnston charged at him

Kallum Griffiths 6 – put his foot in when required, although flew into a cautioned challenge that had home crowd baying for a red card

Lewis Hawkins 6 – broke up play with a series of interceptions without taking control of game

Adriano Moke 5 – busy in middle areas of the pitch, without ever really making presence felt in defensive and attacking thirds

Jordan Burrow 5 – industrious and willing in the air but largely contained by home defence

Joe Ironside 5 – didn’t waste many passes, while failing to threaten the Altrincham goal

Alex Bray 5 – could not meet the same standards he had shown in midweek and lacked penetration

Substitutes: Macaulay Langstaff 5 – quiet (for Ironside, 59), Alex Harris 5 - peripheral (for Bray, 62), Jon Parkin (for Hawkins, 72). Subs not used: David Ferguson, Nathan Dyer.

Star man: Bartlett
