MARK Evans’ brace for Knutsford A helped to ease their relegation fears in the Altrincham and District Amateur League’s top flight on Saturday.

Jamie Way was on target too in a 3-2 success at struggling Swinton, marking only the second time this season that Brian Deeley’s men have recorded back-to-back wins in Division One.

They climb to eighth place in the table as a reward.

To make it a hat-trick of wins, they will need to become the first team to win at leaders AFC Quarry when the teams meet on Saturday.

Ominously, the table-toppers ran out 11-1 victors at Manchester Road during the return game back in September.

Kick off this weekend is 2pm.
