Alfreton Town 1 AFC Halifax Town 0
Wednesday Mar 8, 2017
The Reds forged a superb 1-0 win over play-off chasing AFC Halifax Town last night, with one of their best performances of the season.The all important goal came from Craig Westcarr on his return to the side, his 22nd of the season in all competitions. Westcarr struck in the 61st minute turning in the box and finishing superbly well into the bottom corner.
The same player had nearly opened the scoring in the first half, coming very close after rounding the Shaymen's keeper Sam Johnson.
The Reds were particularly impressive in the second half, former Red Tom Denton was well shackled as was prolific scorer Matty Kosylo, in what turned out to be a superb defensive display.
New signings Jordan Richards and debutant Wes Atkinson both fitted in well and performed admirably.
Alfreton have now moved five points clear of the drop-zone with a game in hand over Worcester City who occupy the last relegation place.
