Alfreton Town 3-1 Braintree Town

Josh Law

Alfreton defeated Braintree and maintained their impressive home form this season to make it eight wins from 10 games at the Impact Arena.

The hosts took the lead when John Akinde converted a Bradley Wood cross before Tom Shaw finished from close range just before the break.

A touch of fortune brought Braintree back into the game when Luke Daley's cross-shot looped into the net.

But Josh Law sealed the victory when he headed in another Wood delivery.
