AFC Telford United have to settle for a place in the Blue Square Bet North play-offs, despite fighting back from a goal down to beat Vauxhall Motors 4-1.
The visitors took the lead through Leighton McGivern, but three quick goals from Sean Newton, Andy Brown and Greg Mills put the Bucks in control.
Jon Adams finished off the victory with a fourth with nine minutes left to secure a play-off spot for the Bucks.
But their hopes of automatic promotion were ended as Alfreton won the title.
Speaking to BBC Radio Shropshire, Telford manager Andy Sinton said: "We've done terrific. I want another six points on the board ahead of the play-offs, then we'll see who we play."
