ALTRINCHAM recorded their biggest away win for almost six years with a 6-0 victory over a Curzon Ashton side which had recently risen up the National League North table after taking 19 points from their previous eight matches.

Alty's goalfest was even more remarkable for the fact that talismanic striker Jordan Hulme was suspended and top scorer Josh Hancock drew a blank in this match.

Curzon had looked bright in the first half before Altrincham took a 30th-minute lead.

A short-corner routine culminated in John Johnston drifting inside from the left to power a shot past The Nash's keeper, Cameron Mason.

And, just six minutes later, Sean Williams doubled his side's lead with a superb shot from outside the box which flew in off the inside of the upright.

Two minutes after the interval, Joe Piggott got his first goal for the club when he won a one-on-one against the goalkeeper.

Then, on 50 minutes, fellow loanee, Yusifu Ceesay, also opened his Altrincham account before the Robins made it 5-0 with just nine minutes of the second half having elapsed – Piggott again on target when he slotted the ball through both the keeper's hands and legs.

The young striker from Wigan Athletic completed his hat-trick in the 72nd minute when he chased a seemingly lost cause before poking the ball past Mason.

Alty spurned several chances to add to the margin of a comprehensive victory which left them still in a play-off position, seventh in the table.

The Robins entertain Chester on Saturday, looking to complete a league double against their Cheshire rivals.
