The Reds fell behind after just seven minutes when Richard Peniket put the visitors in front. However, two goals in the space of four minutes just before half-time saw Alfreton leading at the interval as a Shaun Harrad penalty on 41 minutes was added to by Tom Shaw who bundled the ball home on 45.
Tamworth drew level on 67 minutes when Matt Godden netted from the penalty spot after he had been fouled by Darran Kempson.
Alfreton again showed their character and after Job Ayo Akinde had put them 3-2 up on 73 minutes, substitute Paul Clayton sealed a thirteenth home win of the season ten minutes later with the fourth.
