Alfreton Town 2-3 Aldershot Town

Sam Hatton scored twice to secure an Aldershot victory at Alfreton as both sides had a player sent off.

John Johnston hooked a shot into the top corner to give Alfreton the lead, but they were 2-1 down at the break.

The visitors drew level with a Hatton penalty after Niall Heaton was sent off for a professional foul on Ryan Jarvis, before Brett Williams scored.

Hatton then struck again for Aldershot, who had Josh Scott sent off late on after Karl Hawley had pulled one back.

Aldershot Town caretaker boss Chris Barker told BBC Surrey:

"We got three points against a side who are lower down than us and the boys have worked hard for me.

"They did let in a goal early on and a few weeks ago we might have lost that, so I give credit to all of the boys. That's two wins out of two now and a nice little run, but we won't get over excited.

"Sam Hatton has been waiting for his opportunity and he's knocked on my door this week and luckily I put him in the team.

"I know what Sam's like, he's a great lad, he works hard and I know he can play in two or three positions, so he's perfect."
