Halifax stroll to victory over Stockport
Matthew Warburton struck against his former club as Halifax registered a 3-0 victory over Stockport at The Shay.
The summer signing from Northampton delivered a fine free-kick to give his side the lead four minutes before half-time.
Stockport twice hit the woodwork prior to the deadlock being broken, John Rooney curling an effort off the post before Alex Reid’s cross was diverted onto the bar by a Halifax defender.
A terrific Tyrell Warren tackle prevented Reid from making it 1-1 before Halifax goalkeeper Sam Johnson made a stunning save to deny Rooney.
Those moments proved crucial when Tom Bradbury added a second with 12 minutes left with a tap-in before Billy Waters put the icing on the cake in the 90th minute with his fifth goal in six games.
