LATE SHAW GOAL ENSURES DESERVED POINT
Alfreton Town twice came from behind to gain a very late but valuable point in a 2-2 draw with Forest Green Rovers who were denied a sixth successive Vanarama Conference victory by the Reds who also had what they felt was another perfectly good goal disallowed.
All of the goals came in the second half with James Marwood putting the visitors in front on 64 minutes only for John Johnston to produce his first goal for the club three minutes later to get Alfreton level.
Forest Green regained the lead on 85 minutes when Jon Parkin headed in Marcus Kelly's free kick but the never-say-die Reds fought to the end and equalised in the last minute of four minutes of added time when Tom Shaw's downward header brushed Lathaniel Rowe-Turner on it's way into the net, Shaw officially being credited with the goal.
The point gained means Alfreton are now level with Southport on points and only two points behind Welling United with a game in hand.
