Alfreton Town made no mistake on Tuesday night when they finally overcame Sutton Coldfield Town 3-0 in a replay of their FA Cup second round qualifying tie.

A trio of outstanding goals saw Jordan Sinnott’s 30-yard strike sandwiched between two Declan Bacon sizzlers as the Royals mustered little response.

The opener on 17 minutes saw Bacon swivel before smashing home a Josh Clackstone cross from the edge of the area.

Eleven minutes later Sinnott registered his first goal for the club in style, the prize money of £9,000 safely pocketed when Bacon hammered home a loose ball 13 minutes into the second half.

A bizarre moment in the 86th-minute saw James Clifton’s shot cannon to safety off both uprights as the Reds cruised to a third round qualifying tie at neighbours Mickleover Sports on Saturday week.
