In advance of Saturday's game, Ashton United
said that "It’s another big game at the top end of the Evo-Stik Premier Division as Ashton welcome runaway leaders Altrincham to Hurst Cross. Banim’s men have only lost one of their last 12 league games and that solitary loss came against the Ammies in a 3-2 defeat at Moss Lane last month.
The visitors will come into the game on the back of a 2-1 home in over Sutton Coldfield, thanks to Max Harrop’s goal of the season contender, and John Johnson’s penalty in the second half ensured that Altrincham increased their lead at the summit. Altrincham are in fine goal scoring form this season, finding the net 68 times in just 30 games. They also boast an impressive defensive record too, conceding only 25 goals so far this campaign.
Despite losing the reverse fixture, Ashton can go into the game encouraged with their home form as the Robins haven’t lost at home since September in the league when Hednesford Town took all three points at Hurst Cross.
This week our one to watch is ex-Robin Max Harrop, the 24-year-old started his career at Bury in 2010 and, following numerous loan spells away, Harrop joined Nantwich Town in 2013. After his two-year stint he then went to Hurst Cross and joined Ashton United but, after only five appearances, he then joined Rammsbottom United for another short period. In August 2017, Harrop joined Altrincham and has scored five goals so far this term including a stunner vs Sutton Coldfield".
