Alfreton Town 2-0 Kidderminster Harriers

Alfreton Town eased their relegation worries as John Johnston and Karl Hawley scored against Kidderminster Harriers.

The Reds took the lead when Johnston fired home from 12 yards, the midfielder's third goal in five games.

Callum Gittings missed a chance to equalise for Kidderminster, who are now six games without a win, before Hawley headed in Andi Thanoj's free-kick.

Alfreton's second straight win earns them a four-point safety cushion.
