Alfreton Town 4-2 Tamworth

Alfreton kept up the pressure on second-placed Cambridge with an impressive victory over relegation-threatened Tamworth.

Richard Peniket put Tamworth ahead before Shaun Harrad levelled from the spot, following Jordan Keane's foul on John Akinde.

Tom Shaw bundled the hosts in front but Matt Godden equalised from the spot after he was felled by Darran Kempson.

Akinde then struck a third and provided Paul Clayton for Town's fourth.
