Stockport 0-0 Alfreton Town

Blue Square Bet Premier strugglers Stockport and Alfreton played out a goalless draw dominated by defences.

The visitors had the first real chance when Anthony Church saw his curling effort bring out the best in County goalkeeper Matthew Glennon.

Glennon's opposite number, Joe Day, then saved well from Sean McConville's close-range effort.

Alfreton's Nathan Arnold had an opportunity to land a late winner but saw his shot go just wide.

Following this result, both clubs remain in the Blue Square Bet Premier relegation zone.
