Atherstone United (0) 2
[DR MARTENS PREMIER DIVISION]

Danny Martin scored twice as United came from behind to record their third successive away victory and their fourth in the last five matches.

They were under the cosh in the first half when they were unable to mount any real threat to Ilkeston's goal and it was no surprise when they went behind in the 17th minute.

Manager Ron Bradbury would not have been pleased with the manner of the goal. Ilkeston's midfielder Ian Robinson coasted past three United players before crashing his shot into the net past goalkeeper Craig Glover and Atherstone were lucky not to fall further behind before half-time.

Darren Ball should have put Ilkeston further ahead but he rashly fired over the target from close range with the interval approaching.

He was to live to regret that miss. United looked a new side in the second half and it took them only three minutes to find the equaliser.

Paul White supplied the pass for Danny Williams to produce the perfect shot into the top corner of the net from just outside the penalty area.

There was a big slice of luck involved in Martin's winner. He ran at the Ilkeston defence in the 69th minute and thundered in a shot which struck defender Charlie Bishop before rolling over the line with the goalkeeper stranded.
