Barnoldswick Town went down 4-2 at home to relegation-threatened Alsager Town on Wednesday night.

Town were gifted an opening goal after eight minutes, Alsager full back Kyle Stubbs passing the ball across the edge of his own area, allowing Dalton Hutchison to slot past Matt Conkie.

Town increased their lead after 15 minutes, Michael Woodvine and Ben Gorman combining to put Mark Threlfall clear, and he drilled a great shot in off the far post.

Alsager pulled one back on 26 minutes as Josh Gordon ran clear before slipping the ball past Jordan Gidley.

Two minutes into first half injury time Alsager equalised as Michael Lennon’s cross found Chris Baker, and he made no mistake.

Two minutes into the half, Baker was brought down by Gidley, who was booked, and from the penalty, Gordon made it 3-2.

Niall Green sealed the win when he curled a great shot into the far top corner.

On Saturday, Town went down 3-0 at home to West Didsbury and Chorlton, after goals from Jonathan Poizer, Nicolaos Evangelinos and Matt Eckersley.

Last Thursday night, Town had enjoyed a 3-0 win at AFC Blackpool, with Mark Threlfall (2) and John Beckwith on target.

Town host Atherton Collieries in their last game of the season tomorrow.
