REDS HIT BACK TO EARN FIRST AWAY WIN
Two goals in the space of three second half minutes enabled Alfreton Town to record their first Vanarama National League North away win of the 2015/16 campaign as they came from behind to beat Chorley 2-1 at Victory Park.
In front of 1,143 the hosts took the lead on 36 minutes through Andy Bond's six-yarder but a first league goal for the club from John Johnston on 75 minutes and a debut goal from Jordan Robertson two minutes later swung the game and points Alfreton's way.
Both goals were top quality with Johnston latching onto a defence-splitting pass from Sam Jones before rounding the home keeper and netting from a narrow angle then Robertson, who had earlier seen a stunning 20 yard drive clip the bar, received pass on the edge of the area with his back to goal and took a side-step before turning and firing past a ruck of defenders, netting a superb low shot into the bottom corner.
The win made it back-to-back victories and took Nicky Law's side onto ten points, moving them up to twelfth in the table.
At the end of the game, the players went en masse to the visiting fans and gleefully celebrated with them, shaking hands with numerous fans to thank them for their support.
Cliff Moyo was named as the Reds man of the match.
