On a very windy night these opponents met for the fourth time this season, with Woodley holding a 2-1 lead as regards victories and with the visitors also being the league leaders.
After 8 minutes Altrincham lost their leading scorer Ben Deegan, with a suspected broken nose, which required the full attention of the physio, Julieanne Gresty, to stop the bleeding. Ben returned to the field of play in the 13th minute with his noise plugged. Altrincham won a corner in the 15th minute which was taken by Anthony Davies. It was headed on by Richard Gresty to fellow central defender Tom Barclay who put the home side in front (1-0). This heralded a golden spell in which Altrincham scored four times in eleven minutes.
The sixteenth minute saw Matty Williams score superbly with his left foot and thus keep up his record of scoring in all four games against Woodley. In the 24th minute Hassan Zareh-Ourang miscued a shot which fell at Williams's feet - 3-0 to Altrincham. Then, the best move of the match saw Astley Mulholland make good progress up the right flank and slip the ball inside for Ben Deegan to score (26 mins). With Alty first-team manager Graham Heathcote an interested spectator, Woodley battled gamely on and half time arrived with no further score.

The second half was a much flatter affair with both sides sharing possession. In this half, Altrincham made three substitutions. After 66 minutes Rick Crawford replaced Ben Deegan. In the 77th minute Danny Browne came on for Andy Keogh and, finally, in the 80th minute, Reza Zareh-Ourang replaced Astley Mulholland. All three of the replacements are young enough to be available next season for the youth team.
As the game drew to its conclusion, a Woodley cross from the left was tipped onto the bar by Altrincham's keeper Lewis Bishop but, unfortunately, ity fell at the feet of a Woodley player who completed the scoring (87 mins). Altrincham now go forward to meet Kingsley United at home on Sunday 23rd April. However, before this, Altrincham have two very important matches. On Sunday, 16th April they are away in the Open Cup Semi-Final at Eagley and then entertain Morecambe at home in the League on Wednesday 19th April.
