A much-changed Alfreton Town gave their fans an extra special Christmas present when they came from behind to win 2-1 at local derby rivals Mansfield Town on Boxing Day.
In front of 4,186 - including 350 who travelled from Alfreton - the Reds fell behind on 35 minutes when John Dempster put the hosts in front from close range.
However, Alfreton were level just two minutes later when Paul Clayton headed home his 11th goal of the season and it was recalled strike partner Ben Tomlinson who got the winner on 57 minutes with his eighth of the campaign.
The first ever Alfreton victory over the Stags lifts Nicky Law's side up to 15th in the table.
The Reds face their last game of 2012 on Saturday, December 29th when they travel to Nuneaton Town. Kick-off is 3pm.
The return fixture with Mansfield Town is on New Year's Day with an earlier than usual kick-off time of 1pm. This game is ALL TICKET. Details of sales here
