ALFRETON TOWN 0, BRAINTREE TOWN 2
Sunday Aug 31, 2014
Alfreton Town's pointless start to the 2014/15 Vanarama Conference season stretched to six games on Saturday after a 2-0 home defeat against Braintree Town at the Impact Arena.
Stand-in manager Russ O'Neill handed a starting debut to latest signing Andi Thanoj (pictured) but it was another midfield man, Tom Shaw, who was named as the Reds man of the match.
After an even first half, both goals for the visitors came in the second period with Kenny Davis heading home a Dan Sparkes corner on 64 minutes before Sparkes fired the second from the edge of the penalty area on 80 minutes.
Alfreton are without a game in midweek before visiting league leaders Barnet on Saturday, September 6th, 3pm.
