Alfreton Town fell to a 3-1 Vanarama National League North home defeat against Stalybridge Celtic.
Against the run of play, the visitors snatched a tenth minute leadwhen Steve Tames shot home but the Reds were soon back on level terms on 27 minutes courtesy of Jordan Robertson's fifth goal in six games.
The Reds dominated the rest of the first half but could not add further goals to supplement their superiority.
The second half was a different story with the Reds falling off the pace and Celtic coming much more into the game as an attacking force and they went in front on 70 minutes when Tames netted his second of the game before Alex Johnson sealed the win for the visitors with a third goal on 83 minutes.
The defeats means the Reds have now won four, drawn four and lost four of their opening twelve league games.
