LATE BRADLEY STUNNER WINS IT FOR REDS
An dramatic 89th minute strike by Dan Bradley (pictured) earned Alfreton Town all three points at home to Eastleigh on Wednesday night.
With latest loan signing, goalkeeper George Willis making his debut after joining from Sheffield United, the Reds led three times before finally claiming the points with a terrific run and strike by Bradley who picked the perfect moment to register his first goal of the season with a 25 yard strike into the top corner proving ultimately decisive.
Defender Cliff Byrne also netted his first goal since joining the club, his close range shot putting Alfreton ahead after just seven minutes.
Eastleigh levelled when Jai Reason's shot was deflected in on 25 minutes.
The Reds regained the lead on 78 minutes when Dan Bradley set up Karl Hawley but the visitors responded again two minutes later when Craig McAllister steered home a Ben Strevens cross.
With time running out, Dan Bradley then cut inside and struck home a superb shot to ensure three priceless points for the Reds.
The result moved Alfreton up one place to 21st and Nicky Law's side are now just one point away from safety after securing a second successive victory.
