AFC TELFORD UNITED v ALFRETON TOWN IS ON
Friday Jan 18, 2013
NEW BUCKS HEAD PITCH HAS PASSED AN INSPECTION
Today's Blue Square Bet Premier Division game at AFC Telford United is ON.
The New Bucks Head pitch has passed an inspection by the match referee. The Shropshire club have had frost covers on their pitch since Wednesday and currently have a couple of dozen fans clearing the snow from the pitch.
Reds manager Nicky Law has no injury worries as Ross Killock has recovered from a calf strain and there are no suspensions to contend with so Law has the luxury of a full strength squad and also has the option of whether or not to start latest loan signing Louie Soares.
Alfreton have never won at the New Bucks Head in six visits there in the league and can only boast one point from 18 there. In fact, the Reds have only scored once there and conceded ten in league and play-off games against United.
Telford are fighting to stay out of the relegation zone and their home form is not the best this season. They have only won twice from 14 games at the New Bucks Head with six games being drawn and six ending in home defeats. On home soil the Bucks have scored 17 and conceded 23 so far.
The first game of the season between the sides back on Saturday, October 27th finished 1-1 at the Impact Arena with Ben Tomlinson's opener for the Reds in the first minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half being cancelled out by a 30-yard stunner from Chris Sharp for Telford on 69 minutes.
