A goal on 8 minutes when Jack Fowler's shot deflected well out of the reach of the goalkeeper was the ultimate difference but it did not reflect the visitors' domination of the first half.

Jamie Hoppitt had a goal mysteriously disallowed by a very debatable lineman’s flag that might have well deflated the home side who are currently in the midst of a huge backlog of fixtures.

The second half was a very competitive contest neither side taking a backward step.

As the game went into the later stages Tadley took every opportunity to send the ball forward quickly but the Alton defenders dealt manfully with the long ball.

There were two occasions as the clock ticked down that Alton should have got the decisive second goal.

Two slick breaks tore open the home defence but the finishing touch could not be applied.

With the referee adding an extended period of added time it took a vital close range block from Alton keeper Toby Fisher in the very last seconds to preserve the three points after the ball broke favourably for the home side.

Alton made numerous changes between the two starting elevens over the Easter weekend and were very impressive in both games proving the depth in strength of the squad that the management team have put together. The work rate in both games was relentless.

Alton continue a five game away streak this Saturday travelling to Redhill, kick off 3pm.
