Here's an assessment of how Simon Weaver's players rated out of 10. PICTURES: MATT KIRKHAM.
James Belshaw 8. What a save to deny Ryan Upward an equaliser. That stunning stop was just as crucial as Mark Becks winning goal at the other end. Ryan Fallowfield 8. ADVERTISER STAR MAN. Another faultless display by Towns energetic, ever-improving right-back. Impressive going forwards, rock-solid defensively. Callum Howe 7. Enjoyed a good tussle with Magpies striker Adrian Clifton early on. Read the game well, covering across to good effect on a number of occasions. Kelvin Langmead 7. Very sound, once again. One crucial second-half intervention. Might have done better with a couple of headed chances. Warren Burrell 7. Another tidy showing at left-back. Not much got past him and was always a willing participant when Town looked to attack. Jack Emmett 7. Looked a threat in the first half. His pace and ability to run with the ball so effectively always causes problems for the opposition. Lloyd Kerry 7. Booked before half-time, but this was another busy, steely performance from a man who gets through so much work in midfield. Josh Falkingham 8. A couple of loose passes early on, but after that he produced a masterclass. Pulled the strings in a classy captains display. George Thomson 8. His cross for the games only goal was a beauty and was begging to be finished off. Produced a number of dangerous centres. Mark Beck 8. Towns match-winner. Took his big chance very nicely. The finish of a player in-form and full of confidence. Jack Muldoon 7. Ran himself into the ground. His pace and movement kept the United defence honest, particularly in the second period.
