FOLLOWING their encouraging 3-2 win at Curzon Ashton on Good Friday, Altrincham faced much tougher opposition on Easter Monday and went down 4-1 at home to second-placed Kidderminster Harriers.

The visitors dominated the opening stages, bolstered by a fifth-minute goal through a James McQuilkin free kick.

However, Altrincham got themselves back in the game, seven minutes before the interval.

Damian Reeves was set free by a long ball and he finished impressively from the edge of the box.

Harriers began the second half on the front foot and netted a goal six minutes after the interval when Jordan Tunnicliffe was left unmarked at a corner and Joe Ironside scored from the defender's header.

Kiddy scored twice more in the final 15 minutes.

Andre Brown made it 3-1 after fellow substitute Emmanuel Sonupe's fierce drive had fallen for him after hitting the bar.

And Sonupe himself completed the scoring four minutes from time, tapping the ball home after Alty goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson had been unable to hold a shot.

Three days earlier, Altrincham recorded their third away win and their first three-goal haul of the campaign to overcome their mid-table opposition at Curzon Ashton.

But they left it late, only clinching the three points with the game in added time.

The Robins had fallen behind, against the run of play, three minutes before the interval when Matty Warburton netted.

However, they equalised instantly when a push on David Lynch earned a spot-kick, from which captain Jake Moult scored.

And the Robins went ahead shortly after the hour-mark, when James Lawrie was upended in the box and Moult again converted impressively.

Curzon equalised in controversial circumstances, 14 minutes from time when the assistant referee ruled the ball had crossed the goal-line before Tim Deasy gathered it and Curzon's Jonathan Hunt was awarded the goal to make it 2-2.

But Altrincham got the winner in the first minute of added time.

Good work on the left, involving Nicky Clee, ended with midfielder Simon Richman netting from close range to clinch the victory.

Alty's final home game of the season is against Alfreton Town on Saturday, kick off 3pm.
