ALFRETON TOWN 2, NOTTS COUNTY 3

Sunday Jul 19, 2015

Alfreton Town slipped to a first pre-season defeat in four outings but still impressed with another good showing against a strong Notts County side.

The Reds took the lead on 12 minutes when John Johnston capitalised on a defensive error from a free kick to round keeper Roy Carroll and stroke the ball home.

The Magpies equalised on 33 minutes when Jimmy Spencer produced a neat turn in the area before netting a crisp 12 yarder.

It was 2-1 to the Magpies on 48 minutes when substituteWes Atkinson steered home from just inside the penalty area and 3-1 on 60 when Hayden Hollis rose highest to head home from a corner.

Alfreton reduced the arrears when Andi Thanoj cracked home a superb 20 yard free kick on 70 and were only denied an equaliser by a terrific late double save by Carroll.

There was one sour note when John Johnston limped off with a hamstring injury which is likelyto keep him out of the next few games.
