Preview: Alfreton Town v Sutton Coldfield Town

Tuesday Sep 25, 2018

The Reds return to the Impact Arena this evening for an Emirates FA Cup Second Qualifying Round Replay against Evo-Stik South Division One Central side Sutton Coldfield Town.

After back to back league defeats to Guiseley and league leaders Chorley, Alfreton headed to Sutton on Saturday looking to get back to winning ways but fell 2-0 behind after just six minutes at Coles Lane.

Sutton, who sit two leagues below the Reds, gave Billy Heath an almighty scare but goals from Richard Peniket and Declan Bacon in the second half sealed an impressive comeback and a Replay for Alfreton. 

Defensive sharpness will again be top of the list for the Reds who were caught by two openings on Saturday where the Royals were given too much space. Errors will be a trait the boss will look to iron out as the league campaign rumbles on and a win in tonight's Replay will be a welcome boost ahead of the visit of Bradford (PA) on Saturday in the league. 

Opponents Sutton Coldfield progressed to this stage thanks to replay win against Rushall Olympic. After a 2-2 draw in the first fixture at Coles Lane, the Royals won 0-1 in the second fixture to set up the tie. Another credible result on Saturday followed as they look to cause an upset tonight.  

Sutton's away form in all competitions reads: W2, D0, L3

Sutton Coldfield Form (Last five): LDWLD

The Reds are back at the Impact Arena where we have only lost twice in our five home outings so far and a home win will also bring much needed confidence again.

The winners of tonight's tie face a trip to Evo-Stik Premier division side Mickleover Sports in the Third Qualifying Round on the weekend of 6th October.
