Atherton Colls 0 Droylsden 1

A STRONG Droylsden side arrived at Alder House on Tuesday night and they took the spoils through a thunderous strike from Matty Burke.

Michael Clegg had a full strength side at his disposal, with the exception of striker Phil Howard who is still recovering from an operation.

However, Jordan Cover who scored twice against Farnworth Town last week went off in the early stages after rolling his ankle.

Despite a two-division gap between the sides Colls matched the visitors throughout.

Former Curzon Ashton midfielder Andy Heald grabbed his first goal for Colls when he placed the ball into the bottom-right-hand corner from outside the box.

An equalising goal arrived from the visitors’ next corner, with Jono Hunt heading in from close range.

Matty Boland scored the winning goal on 78 minutes when he found himself one on one with Hakan Burton and slotted home.
