Jimmy McCloy was linking up well with James Pipe and a goal always looked possible. It duly came, with McCloy laying the ball off to Pipe who slotted home with aplomb.
With only 15 minutes to go, a point looked safe. Unfortunately Town conceded with just five minutes to go - a cross came in which eluded both Hill and Hodges. The Corton forward headed goalbound. Unfortunately for Town, Hodges partially cleared it but it rebounded in off a post.
Despite this Town still pressed and came close to scoring through a long-range Ramsbottom volley. Without ever dominating, Town were worthy of a point but conceded two poor goals.
Before the game a minute's applause was observed for former Town player Shaun Bunn.
The club sends its condolences to all his friends and family.
