King's Lynn Town 2-0 Altrincham

Kairo Mitchell scored twice late on as King's Lynn boosted their National League survival hopes with a 2-0 home victory over Altrincham.

Mitchell fired home an angled shot low into the bottom corner with 10 minutes remaining before converting from the penalty spot four minutes from time.

King's Lynn, beaten 3-0 by Altrincham less than a fortnight ago, had earlier seen substitute Michael Gash's 78th-minute penalty saved by Tony Thompson.

Altrincham had the better of the earlier exchanges, with Ryan Colclough striking the crossbar in the second minute and home goalkeeper Theo Richardson making fine saves from Josh Hancock and Connor Hampson.
