Fleetwood striker Jamie Vardy's 14-minute second-half hat-trick inspired the high-flying Cod Army to a comprehensive win over 10-man Alfreton.

After Vardy was fouled by Theo Streete, who was sent off, before Richard Brodie fired Fleetwood in front from the spot.

Vardy then took centre stage, drilling home two minutes after the interval before a 20-yarder and a rasping shot into the top corner for his treble.

Paul Clayton struck from the edge of the box for Alfreton's late reply.
