Post-match: Alfreton manager Law

"We cant continually keep making mistakes and we've done that again today.

"I thought we really passed the ball well today. I thought we really did well until we got to the front then it didn't quite happen for us.

"We came out second half and started off well again and then we've given a poor goal away, and then all of a sudden we make a couple of changes.

"I think Danny Meadows came on and injected a bit of life and enthusiasm up front for us. I think we were the only team trying to win it, and look more likely to win it. They were only going to win it on the break or a mistake from us. "
