Dave Hibbert

Nuneaton replaced Alfreton in the final play-off spot with an easy win over their Conference Premier rivals.

Alfreton keeper Ross Atkins had already made two good saves when Adam Walker headed in Danny Sleath's cross to put the hosts in front.

Dave Hibbert doubled Nuneaton's lead three minutes before half-time with a low 20-yard effort.

Paul Clayton struck the hosts' crossbar but Wesley York scored late on to send Nuneaton up to fifth.
