Question of the Week

Are there too many police at football matches?

Too many
Too few
About right

Alfreton almost scored in the first minute when McKeown saved with his feet from Arnold and then Town broke from their corner and Hearn ended up crossing for Artus in a great position who skied it over the bar.

Hearn gave Town the lead when Townsend set him up. Hearn took a touch and it was defelected off a defender into the net.

Town continued to boss the game and Artus missed another golden opportunity when Coulson set him and Artus failed to connect properly from close range.

Towm scored a second from a quick Artus free kick, which Hearn's shot again took a deflection, this time off Coulson.

Arnold gave the home side a lifeline when a ball was played into the box from a free kick and Arnold turned on the edge of the box and fired it in.

Town gave themselves breathing space when Thanoj set up Hearn, who rounded the keeper and found the target with ease.

Alreton changed their keeper at half time for a ex-Town defender Greg Young. But the home side almost took the lead at the start of the second half when McKeown mistake led to a chance for Arnold but Garner cleared the ball off the line.

With Town coming under pressure at the start of the second half, Town scored against the run of play. The rookie keeper punched the ball and it fell to Garner whose shot went in.

Town wobbled again and conceded when McKeown struggled with another cross from a corner.

Alfreton continued to look dangerous especially when they launch balls into the box.

Town amazingly added a fifth in the final minute for a repeat of the 5-2 scoreline at Blundell Park.
