Altrincham march on with win over leaders Torquay

02 February 2021

Altrincham are unbeaten in five games after defeating National League leaders Torquay 2-1.

Torquay took the lead in the 22nd minute after a Connor Lemonheigh-Evans free-kick returned to him via Kyle Cameron, leaving the midfielder to tap in and make it 1-0.

That effort was cancelled out when the visitors’ Josh Hancock was brought down in the area after 33 minutes and was subsequently awarded a penalty that he swiftly converted.

Substitute Ryan Colclough then secured victory for his side in the 45th minute, striking from the edge of the box and finding the top corner.
