Nelson 0-3 Avro


Avro have stemmed Longridge Town’s lead at the top of the table by five points after cruising to a 3-0 victory at Nelson.

The two sides met at the Vestacare Stadium in the last game of 2018, and while the points were shared on that occasion, there was one clear winner on Tuesday night.

Ryan Hanson put the visitors ahead in the 29th minute, before further goals in the second-half from Louis Potts and Joe Bevan put the game to bed.

James Hampson and Lee O’Brien’s side have now won five of their previous six fixtures, scoring 14 goals in the process.

Their assault on the title continues this weekend at Ashton Town.
