Alfreton Town v AFC Telford United
at The Impact Arena
Alfreton Town welcome eighth-placed AFC Telford United to the Impact Arena on Saturday.
Reds manager Nicky Law welcomes back influential midfield man Anton Brown following a calf injury but striker Anthony Wilson is still receiving treatment for a knee injury which ruled him out of last Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup home win over Gateshead at the eleventh hour and he will need a late fitness check.
Alfreton are unbeaten in their last two games and have only lost once in the last nine games in all competitions.
The Reds' last six league games form reads: D 1-1, D 1-1, D 1-1, W 2-1, L 2-0, D 0-0.
The Bucks have had a sound start to the season and arrive having been beaten just once in seven away games so far with three wins and three draws under their belts already.
Three superb victories have come at Luton Town (1-0), Southport (3-0) and Dartford (4-1) whilst the points have been shared at Barrow (0-0), Cambridge United (3-3) and Gateshead (1-1).
The one and only defeat was a 3-1 reverse at Nuneaton Town who also knocked Telford out of the FA Cup after a fourth qualifying round replay went to extra time in midweek.
United's last six league games form reads: D 2-2, L 4-2, D 1-1, W 1-0, W 4-1, L 2-1 with their last outing for points seeing a 2-1 home defeat against in-form Grimsby Town.
Bucks boss Andy Sinton will be without Jay Smith who has a torn abductor, Chris Blackborn who has a back injury and Darren Byfield who has a hamstring problem.
He welcomes back Jordan Rose from a one-game suspension and he is likely to be recalled in central defence.
Segregation is in place for this game and AFC Telford United supporters are requested to enter the stadium via the away turnstiles at the Alma Street end of the Impact Arena.
Admission is £18 for adults and £12 for concessions (under 16s and over 65s). However, there is an Earlybird Matchday Ticket scheme which can be taken advantage of which gains admission for £16 or £11 respectively.
