In a game that could definitely be classed as a `six-pointer`, Steve Burr`s
Celtic side took a 13th minute lead when Danny Pilkington’s free-kick
went over the wall and past Avenue `keeper Jon Worsnop.
Defender Shane Killock headed Avenue back on level terms on 33 minutes and just
3 minutes later, midfielder Wayne Brooksby netted his first Avenue goal to put
the visitors in front.
Three minutes later, however, Stalybridge were level when James Roberts
converted a low cross.
The home side made it 3-2 after 57 minutes with a terrific volley from
But Avenue were quickly back on level terms again on the hour-mark with an
almost equally as good a volley from Nicky Wroe.
Burr`s side won three precious points though with 74 minutes gone on the
clock when Porya Ahmadi (pictured) converted Danny Wisdom’s cross with virtually his first
touch after coming off the bench.
