A neat free-kick from Athletic undid the Stanton defence but Karantzis shot over. Good work from Brame found Ford whose shot was well blocked by the Stanton defence.
Ford broke Stanton's offside trap but shot into the side netting when he should have crossed. Strong hold-up play from Hubbard gave Hazelton a chance to turn and shoot but his effort was comfortably saved.
Hubbard's brave header almost resulted in a Stanton goal but the ball drifted wide of the post. Stanton rallied late on but Athletic earned the points.
