Lethal striker Jordan Hulme continued his prolific form but added to Altrincham’s frustration at being held to a draw by picking up his fifth booking of the season at The J.Davidson Stadium on Monday, report the Messenger.

Alty’s free-scoring frontrunner reinforced his position as National League North’s leading marksman by heading them in front with his seventh goal in seven games so far. But Alty’s dismay at being pegged back by a deflected long-range effort from Guiseley defender Andy Halls was compounded when Hulme talked his way into the referee’s book to earn himself a one-match suspension.

“Jordan is certainly proving he can do it at this level, just as I knew he would. He is becoming a bit of a cult hero here.

“It was frustrating to see him booked again, but no one is more frustrated than him because he knows he’s going to be sitting watching us play and that will hurt him.

“It’s a balancing act, because I don’t want to take that fire out of him. We need him on the edge.”
