Bradford Park Avenue defender Matt Hill says it was a big relief for the players to take three points from fellow strugglers Altrincham.

Hill scored the winner with 10 minutes to play, after Oli Johnson’s opener had been cancelled out by a well-taken goal by Elliot Newby.

The winger was sent off early in the second half, but Avenue overcame a tricky encounter to take a second successive victory.

“We had to grind it out at times,” Hill said.

“It’s difficult when you play teams who are at the bottom like we are, you are scrapping for your lives, so it’s a big relief for us.

“It’s a nice three points and we’re starting to open up a bit of a gap between ourselves and the bottom three.
