WREXHAM v ALFRETON TOWN PREVIEW
Friday Mar 1, 2013
Alfreton Town are back in Blue Square Bet Premier Division action on Saturday when they travel to take on FA Trophy finalists and league leaders Wrexham at the Racecourse,.
It is a venue where the Reds have already won 4-2 in the FA Cup this season, and 1-0 in the league last season, so it is something of a happy hunting ground.
ATFC Supporters' Association transport departs at 9.45am and seats can be booked via Mark Thorpe on 07857 558401.
Reds manager Nicky Law has no new injury worries and he will be without just goalkeeper Phil Barnes who has ruptured a thigh muscle, an injury which will keep him out for a few weeks, and Theo Streete who sits out the second of a four-match suspension.
Law will be looking for his side to build on their superb 5-1 home win over Hyde FC in midweek as they look to pick up some away points for the first time in three games.
It will be a tough ask though as Wrexham have only lost twice on home soil in the league this season, only Lincoln City (4-2) and Hereford United (2-1) managing to win at the Racecourse so far.
And the Red Dragons come into the game in tremendous form being unbeaten in their last eleven league games, winning the last four in a row, the last three of which were all away and all won by the same 1-0 scoreline.
Jay Harris will be missing for the league leaders though as he begins a four-game suspension after being sent off in the midweek win at Barrow.
The table toppers are without centre half Martin Riley who has a hamstring injury, but they are also hoping they receive international clearance for on loan defender David Artell in time for the game, Artell has joined from Northampton Town.
And another midweek loan signing, striker Dele Adebola is available to make his debut after receiving international clearance.
