Two late goals from Chorley turned this National League North game against Alfreton Town on its head.

An injury time goal from Josh O’Keefe gave the home side all three points in a match they were trailing in three minutes from the 90.

Liam Hearn had given the Reds the breakthrough midway through the first half and it looked as though that would be the way it would finish.

But Jack Sampson popped up with an equaliser before it got one better for the hosts when deep into injury time O’Keefe got the winner.
