AFC Telford United 1 Alfreton Town 1
Monday Dec 26, 2016
The Reds held out for a valuable point at the Bucks Head in a tight Boxing Day encounter.
It was very much a game of two halves as Alfreton were well worth their one goal lead given to them via a 13th minute Craig Westcarr spot kick. This was given after a foul on Sam Smith
The second half was a different story as Telford grabbed a leveller in the 61 st minute through striker, Bradley Reid. From that point on, directed by the lively John Paul Kissock in midfield, the home side looked the more likely to force a winner. Red's keeper Etheridge made a number of key blocks and saves to keep Telford at bay, thus helping to earn a valuable point in front of a crowd of 1,230.
The two sides will do battle again at the Impact Arena on New Years Day, Kick Off 3pm.
