AFC recorded their sixth straight Ryman League North victory, beating Ware 3-2 at the Wardale Williams Stadium on Tuesday night, but ended with ten men after James Baker was sent off.

Baker gave AFC the lead from the penalty spot, and Ware equalised before Baker got a red card following a two-footed tackle.

Ware went ahead, but then had a player sent off for a second yellow card, and Kris Newby blasted home the free kick.

Terry Rymer got the winner following a good move. The win consolidates AFC in the play-off places, fourth on 60 points.
