REPORT: ALFRETON 3-1 HARRIERS

Harriers fell to their first defeat of the season on Tuesday night as they were beaten 3-1 at Alfreton's Impact Arena. 

There were just eleven minutes on the clock when the home side took the lead; they pounced on a moments' indecision from Harriers as a corner was swung in as ex-Kiddy man Dan Bradley rushed in at the far post with a low, driven finish.

It was Alfreton who dominated the largest part of those early stages and they might have had a second through Tom Shaw, also once of Aggborough shores, as he pushed on from midfield and saw an effort parried away by Lewis.

Harriers had their first chance on 25 as Kyle Storer rattled the bar with a long-range effort, Anthony Malbon then having two chances of his own to level before Marvin Johnson, 38 minutes gone, angled one wide to gap a superb footballing move.

Michael Gash headed wide from a Vaughan cross at the start of the second half but it would be the home side who doubled their lead on 52 minutes as Shaw side-footed home from the edge of the area.

Harriers never faltered in their pursuit of openings and Gash nodded another header wide off a Johnson delivery to that end; Steve Burr throwing on wing pair James Dance at the break and Dior Angus closer to the hour. 

With 20 minutes to go the game was arguably put to bed as Bradley netted his second with a cool finish on the counter but Harriers ensured they got on to the score sheet with 11 minutes to go as he smashed the ball in after good work and a set-up by Lee Fowler.
