Back to winning ways on the Humber


AFC bounced back from defeat to Sheffield with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Hall Road Rangers.


A deflected opener for Ross Duggan and a second-half brace from Luke Walker were enough to get the Bulls over the line.


The double-header at Haworth Park featured a simultaneous fixture for the U21s, who were narrowly beaten 4-3 by an adult side.


The first half was a particularly closely fought affair, the Bulls coming closest when the Hall Road goalkeeper was forced to palm over a stinging Ross Duggan free-kick.


AFC's breakthrough did eventually arrive, however, as an impressive string of passes allowed space for Duggan 25 yards out, and the striker found the net with the aid of a cruel deflection.


Matt Chatfield's men were more dominant after the break, doubling their lead when Luke Walker tucked home Ben Algar's clever through pass while Hall Road protested for offside.



The hosts responded immediately, although not in an intentional fashion, as Cameron Hough flicked a long free-kick beyond an out-rushing Hugo Warhurst, who was left stranded as the ball bulged the back of the net.


But Rangers' comeback never truly materialised, Walker securing an impressive brace when he nodded Morgan James' pinpoint cross low beyond the reach of the opposition stopper at his back post.


The Bulls held firm and comfortably saw out a pleasing result, next looking onto a intra-squad clash on Tuesday night with the U21s.


The Young Bulls, meanwhile, enjoyed a thorough run-out despite a 4-3 defeat to Hall Road's reserves.
