A four-goal second half bliz enabled Alfreton Town to record their biggest away win of the season as they thumped ten-man Brackley Town 4-1 in Northamptonshire.
And The Reds had to come from behind to do so after Steve Diggin had given Brackley a 25th minute lead.
Two goals in the space of four minutes between 53 and 57 from Sam Jones and a Dan Bradley follow up after he had seen his penalty parried by Brackley keeper Sam Hornby turned the game around then the hosts had Ryan Austin sent off on 64 minutes for a deliberate kick out on Sam Smith.
Alfreton increased their lead to 3-1 thanks to Ryan Wilson who despatched a superb 20 yard lob on 74 minutes before a goalbound Dan Bradley shot was helped into his own net by Eddie Odihambo for an own goal on 75 minutes to wrap up a second successive victory which makes it ten points out of the last twelve on offer.
The win lifted the Reds up to eleventh in the table.
The attendance was 375 and two-goal Dan Bradley (pictured) was named as the Alfreton Town man of the match as he scored for the second game in succession.
