Fan Paddy dozy for Stockport, as Madden bags Bromley brace

Paddy Madden was at the double for Stockport County, as the Hatters took one step closer to the National League with a 3-1 victory over fellow title challengers Bromley.

After a goalless first half, Stockport eventually found a breakthrough midway into the second period, with Madden breaking the deadlock for the visitors.

Scott Quigley added a second for County, ending a run of seven games without a goal, whilst Madden sealed the victory with five minutes to play.

A Byron Webster consolation in added time did little to lift the spirits of the hosts, who now slip eight points behind favourites Stockport.

Wood keep chipping away, as Robins forced to flee nest

Boreham Wood’s impressive form continued with a comfortable victory over strugglers Altrincham, as the hosts comfortably saw off the Robins 2-0.

In a mandatory victory at Meadow Park, Kane Smith opened the scoring for the Wood, before Scott Boden netted his eighth goal of the campaign just after the interval.

For Altrincham, it’s now just one win in their last 13 matches, as their disappointing slump down the table continues.

Weymouth keep hopes alive with impressive Eastleigh triumph

Weymouth maintained their slim hopes of survival, triumphing 1-0 over mid-table outfit Eastleigh.

Forced to wait until the 71st minute for the opening goal, Brandon Goodship fired the Terras in front.

It would prove to be the only goal of the game, as Weymouth back up their impressive weekend point over Chesterfield with a vital victory at home.
