AFC TELFORD UNITED v ALFRETON TOWN PREVIEW
Friday Feb 27, 2015
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28th, 3pm
Alfreton Town face another massive Vanarama Conference relegation six-pointer on Saturday when they visit AFC Telford United's New Bucks Head.
With just a quarter of the season left, and if ever a first win at Telford by Alfreton Town was ever needed, Saturday is most definitely the day to achieve it.
The Reds travel to Shropshire in search of a first ever win in any competition at the New Bucks Head, and, with both sides sat in the bottom four of the Vanarama Conference table, another tense game is in prospect.
Reds manager Nicky Law is without defender Niall Heaton who is suspended for one game following his somewhat unfortunate sending off against Aldershot Town last weekend, and Law is also without two more defenders, Callum Howe and Duane Courtney both due to injury, but with ten defenders on the books, there is still plenty of choice.
Telford, who have lost their last three successive league games, have the worst home record of any team in the division with just two wins from seventeen home games so far, eleven of which have resulted in defeat on home soil.
And if Alfreton can pull off a fifth away win of the 2014/15 campaign, they could push themselves out of the danger zone and all but seal Telford's fate in the fight against relegation.
In their last outing, Telford lost 1-0 at promotion-chasing Grimsby Town on Tuesday night whilst Alfreton will be looking to bounce back from last Saturday's disappointing 3-2 home defeat against Aldershot Town.
ATFC Supporters’ Association transport for the game at Telford departs from North Street at 9.30am and seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 07857 5584007857 558401.
