Preview: Brackley Town v Alfreton Town

Monday Aug 6, 2018

Tomorrow evening Alfreton Town make the journey to St James Park to face last season's play off finalists Brackley Town for matchday two of the National League North campaign, kick off is 7.45pm.

The Reds began the season on Saturday with a six goal thriller at home to Kidderminster. Alfreton trailed to Dan Bradley's stunning low volley before taking a lead into the interval thanks to Tom Platt's glancing header and Tom Denton also heading in from close range.

The goals continued in the second half with Kane Richards equalising and Joe Ironside putting Kiddy back in front. However Bobby Johnson's 85th minute penalty ensured a deserved point for Billy Heath's men as we began the season with a thriller.

Brackley pose the next test for the Reds in the Saints first home game of the season and our first away trip.

Last season's FA Trophy winners and play off finalists came away from their curtain raiser at Bradford (Park Avenue) on the wrong end of a 1-0 score-line. Luke Fairlamb, Daniel Nti and Gregg Smith made first appearances in a Saints shirt and their new signing, defender Connor Hall was an unused substitute. 

We will be looking for two wins from our last two visits to St James Park after last season's 3-1 success which was Brackley's first defeat of the season at home.

Brackley Town Football Club, St James Park, Churchill Way, Brackley, Northamptonshire, NN13 7EJ
