Trio of wins for loan stars; Elmohamady tastes defeat.

Jordan Pickford’s Alfreton Town pulled off a remarkable comeback against Gateshead in the Conference Premier.

Having trailed 2-0 with 13 minutes remaining, Pickford’s side scored three times to preserve their unbeaten record since the England U19 international stopper joined in February.

Meanwhile, Ahmed Elmohamady played 90 minutes for Hull City as the Tigers lost ground on Championship leaders Cardiff City with a home defeat to in-form Nottingham Forest.

Goals from Darius Henderson and Lewis McGugan extended Forest’s winning run to six under new manager Billy Davies.

Elsewhere, Ji Dong-Won’s Augsburg won their second consecutive away game with a 1-0 victory over Hamburg.

Ji’s side are still five points from safety but have given themselves a comfortable margin ahead of the automatic drop zone in the German top flight and look set to face a relegation play-off come the end of the season.

Billy Knott also returned from injury for Woking, playing 63 minutes as the Cardinals hammered AFC Telford United 5-2, securing a move into the top half of the Conference Premier.
