HARRIERS bagged themselves a big three points at Aggborough after downing Alfreton Town 3-0 in National League North.

Cliff Moyo netted his first goal of the season and Ashley Hemmings bagged a brace to see what was, ultimately, a comfortable night’s work.

As with many of Harriers home games so far this season, it was far from a first half packed with incidents and goals, though a good hold from Luke Simpson to thwart Bradley who shot from the area was one of a few on show, as were quick feet from Hemmings inside the area as he cut in and shot at Willis – the effort going just wide.

In truth, a fairly scrappy half really yielded little else other than the goal on 27 minutes as the two sides battled hard to stem attacks at source. The goal itself was a terrific headed effort from Moyo, back in the side for his first start of the season to turn home a great corner delivery from Sterling.

Both sides set about getting more shots off early in the second half and, within the first dozen minutes or so, Montrose and Sterling going close with efforts – the former with a decent shot that was well held, while Reeves and Bradley remained threatening for the visitors, Simpson doing well to save from the former Harriers man.

Sterling’s delivery – from the goal and numerous chances – was a real threat throughout the night and it did the duty with 19 minutes to go as Hemmings nodded in a sublime cross, a simple but accomplished finish for his fifth goal of the term.

The third goal was the icing on the cake with just three minutes left of normal time; late hassling and harrying seeing the side rewarded, a loose ball chased down and finding Hemmings who swept accurately into an unguarded net.
