Stalybridge Celtic picked up a huge three points in midweek, as they beat fellow strugglers Bradford Park Avenue 4-3, to boost their slim hopes of National League North survival alive.
In a game very much dubbed a ‘six pointer’, Celtic took the lead through Danny Pilkington’s free kick before Shane Killock and Wayne Brooksby put Avenue ahead. James Roberts and Aaron Chalmers put Stalybridge back in front before another equaliser from Avenue’s Nicky Wroe. Celtic won the match through Porya Ahmadi on 74 minutes.
