Eastbourne 1-0 Altrincham

A moment of brilliance from Paul Armstrong earned Conference new-boys Eastbourne a third win of the season.

Armstrong struck midway through the first half after Ben Austin cut in from the right channel and found his team-mate, who produced an exquisite lob.

The visitors went close when Colin Little's effort from the edge of the box flashed just past the post.

With seven minutes left Dale Johnson headed over from close range, but it was not to be Altrincham's day.
