Alfreton Town 3-2 Eastleigh

Nicky Law
After four straight defeats, Nicky Law's Alfreton have now back-to-back league games

Dan Bradley scored an 89th-minute winner to give Conference strugglers Alfreton victory over Eastleigh.

The hosts led when Tom Shaw's cross fell to Cliff Byrne to drill home.

But Jai Reason snatched an equaliser with a deflected effort from the edge of the area before the break.

Bradley teed up Karl Hawley for an Alfreton second and, even though Craig McAllister steered in Ben Strevens' cross to level it up, Bradley struck a superb 25-yard effort to win it.

Alfreton gave a debut to goalkeeper George Willis, who joined on loan from Sheffield United ahead of Wednesday's game.

Willis, 19, is the sixth different keeperexternal-link used by the Conference club this season.
