Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law felt his side paid the price for a lack of concentration in the 2-0 defeat at FC Halifax Town.

"We came with a plan - we let them have possession where we wanted them to have it and were comfortable with them having it, and l don't think we were in any danger first half" he said.

"We came out second half - disappointed in the two goals we've given away - switched off on the two occasions and we've paid the price.

"Having said that l made a change - we went for it a little bit as we had to and l think the young boy John Johnston came on and put two fantastic balls in, and we could have got a couple of goals

"l've just said in there we could have got something out of that game, but unfortunately as you say [acknowledging BBC Radio Derby's Tim Richards] it's de ja'vu, it's happening too often and we've been through this again

"l'm not taking anything away from Halifax, but l didn't think we were in danger first half - when you play like that you are going to be reliant upon the support to the front and Karl Hawley did it really well on his own up there and l think we needed a little bit more from the two wide positions and maybe one of the central midfielders.

"lf l'm really being critical l don't think we're bright enough off the lines, off the sides and l think in spells in the second half at 0-0 we were wanting people to go and get on the ball and probably there was a couple who were a little bit reluctant

"But that comes with confidence - there's no hiding place - you are where you are - you do one of two things - you either come out fighting or you lay down and die, and it's got to be the first one

"We went to Macclesfield and improved - two poor goals there, and we've come here today and l think we've done well, although it's the same old result and we're disappointed with the two goals we've given away today" ended Law.
