Alfreton Town's penultimate pre-season friendly ended prematurely on Tuesday evening when young Reds Academy keeper Danny Hatfield, 18, had his first team debut marred when he suffered a broken nose and experienced breathing difficulties after a collision with a Sutton Town player.
With an ambulance in attendance and Hatfield being treated on the pitch before being taken to hospital where he stayed over night, Nottingham referee Hristo Karaivanov abandoned the fixture on 67 minutes.
A much-changed Alfreton squad, again containing numerous trialist players, made a strong start and they were only kept at bay in the opening 20 minutes by a string of superb saves by former Reds keeper Gavin Saxby. Alfreton then opened up a 2-0 lead with two goals in a minute on 36 and 37 minutes, both efforts coming from trialists. The Central Midlands League Premier Division hosts stuck to their task and had got themselves level with a brace of goals from Nathan Hollingworth on 62 and 65 minutes. The first came from the penalty spot, the second a 35 yard free kick. Two minutes later came the injury to Hatfield and an early end to the game.

The Reds return to the Impact Arena on Friday when Chesterfield are the visitors for a 7.45pm kick-off.
With a larger crowd expected, fans are requested to arrive earlier than usual to avoid any congestion.
