REDS SUFFER A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

There was no early festive cheer for Alfreton Town as they suffered a nightmare before Christmas in going down 5-1 at home to high-flying Macclesfield Town.

The Reds got off to a good start and took the lead courtesy of an eigth minute Bradley Wood penalty but found themselves 3-1 down at half-time as a brace of goals from Matthew Barnes-Homer on 17 and 27 minutes and a 25 yard strike from Danny Whitaker on 36 put the visitors in charge.

Chris Holroyd added a fourth on 55 minutes before Reds keper George Willis superbly saved a Waide Fairhurst penalty.

Macclesfield substitute Denny Johnstone sealed victory for his side with a fifth goal on 82 minutes.
