At West Didsbury, Town took a seventh-minute lead when Matthew Cavanagh glanced a free kick inside the far post, out of the reach of keeper Aaron Ashley.

Town completely restricted the hosts’ threat, limiting them to corners and long throws, and they sealed the wiin eight minutes from time when Andrew Hill curled in a magnificent free kick.

At Barnton, Town’s first goal came on 15 minutes, as Zack Dale drilled the ball across goal and keeper Rob Cooke palmed the ball into his own net.

In the second half, Town conceded a penalty within two minutes of the restart, Chris Smith sending Connor King the wrong way.
