Phil Parkinson insisted Altrincham will carry on entertaining as they enter the final phase of trying to secure a first-ever place in the National League play-offs.

Fourth in the league with just three games left, after a 1-0 Easter Monday win against Oldham Athletic before the TNT Sports cameras, the Robins face a searching test of nerve and character as they head into away fixtures with Dorking Wanderers and Ebbsfleet United over the next two Saturdays before hosting Oxford City on April 20.

But they will stick to the policy that has brought them 81 goals so far this season and that proved too good for Oldham, as Chris Conn-Clarke’s first-half strike settled the outcome in front of a best-of-season crowd of 4,578.

“We have put on a show in front of the cameras and a bumper crowd, and I’m ever so proud of everyone connected with the club,” said Alty boss Parkinson.

“If we all stick together and keep doing the things we are good at, we’ve got a puncher’s chance in any game in this division.

“I thought we played some lovely stuff in the first half and carved them open at times.

“The front four are a delight to watch at the moment, but that’s just how we approach games. We are not setting up to stop the opposition or looking for a draw. We are going into games trying to score goals and win, and if I was paying to watch, that is what I would want to see.

“The way the players are focused and geared up at the moment, we fancy it against anyone.”

It was Alty’s third straight win, following a 3-1 Good Friday victory at Kidderminster, with Elliot Osborne playing a pivotal role in central midfield and winning the Harvey Nichols man-of-the-match award.

“Elliot epitomises what we look for in a central midfielder,” said Parkinson. “We were dominant in the first half, and while we were always going to have to weather some pressure after that, we did it really well.”
