ALFRETON Town bounced back from two defeats on the road to record a 3-2 win against fellow strugglers Newport County on Tuesday evening at the Impact Arena.
The visitors took an early lead when Elliott Buchanan shot home from 12 yards after Joe Day had produced a fine save from Robbie Matthews.
Alfreton gradually came into the game and equalised on 29 minutes when Anthony Church glanced a header home from inside the six yard box to finish a Josh Law corner.
Nine minutes later the Reds were in front when Jake Moult smashed home a superb 18-yard left-footed volley through a ruck of players.
Newport equalised on 59 minutes when Gary Warren netted from close range but a determined effort from Nicky Law's side paid off when substitute and top goalscorer Nathan Jarman pounced to net from close in and ensure three precious points.
Alfreton are at home again on Saturday when Southport are the visitors in an FA Trophy game. Kick-off is 3pm.
