Preview: Alfreton Town v Blyth Spartans

Friday Aug 17, 2018

Alfreton Town play host to Blyth Spartans in the next fixture in the Vanarama National League North on Saturday, kick off is 3pm.

After a snatch and grab display from Curzon Ashton this past Tuesday which saw Joe Guest steal the points with a 92nd minute deflected strike, Billy Heath's side will be looking for an immediate response in front of the Reds faithful on Saturday.

A performance which showed plenty of positives including chances created, neat build up play and a constant attacking threat; the fact the Reds missed chance after chance in the first half will be an aspect Billy Heath will be looking to instantly change to turn those chances into goals. 

Alfreton were extremely unlucky to not even win the game on Tuesday and the defeat would have been a sucker punch at full time but how the Reds respond on Saturday to the set-back will be vital in regaining momentum following the York win. 

Defeat to Curzon was our second of the season, as we look for our second win of the season on Saturday.  

Alun Armstrong's Blyth will be hoping to continue their decent form as of late, their last two games have seen a 8-1 demolition of Chester followed by a creditable 1-1 draw at Darlington on Wednesday night. 

Blyth started the new season with back to back defeats away at Hereford and at home Bradford (Park Avenue) leaving the Spartans also on four points from four games. 

The Reds will be looking for a first home win of the season after a 3-3 opening day draw with Kidderminster followed by Tuesday's 0-1 defeat to Curzon Ashton.
