Alfreton Town v Altrincham

Alfreton Town v Altrincham

Wednesday Nov 22, 2017

Alfreton Town entertain Altrincham in the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy on Saturday at the Impact Arena kick-off 3pm.

The Reds will be looking to build on their good 2-1 win at AFC Telford United last Saturday in the Vanarama National League North, a result which ended a run of four league defeats in a row and lifted the Reds back towards mid table.

The Reds will also be looking to wrestle back home form which has seen us lose three home games in a row to Chorley, Harrogate and York City; all sides in the top ten during a difficult run of fixtures in which the Reds should have earned points. But victory at Telford on Saturday ended the poor run of results.

However this will be a very tough encounter against the current leaders of the Evo-stik Northern Premier League, Alty having been relegated from National League North at the end of last season.

After making a slow start, they are currently in fine form and are unbeaten in their last twelve league games. Their current playing record in the league is Played 20 Won 12 Drawn 5 Lost 3, Points 41. The Robins also bode a good recent away record, avoiding defeat in their last five away outings. 

Their last three league games have seen a 4-0 home win over Lancaster City, followed by a 1-1 draw also at home to Buxton. Last Saturday saw them comfortable 4-0 winners at bottom of the table Sutton Coldfield Town with two goals from Jordan Hulme and one each from James Jones and former Red, Jake Moult. Also in their side was former Alfreton player, John Johnstone.

The full Alty line-up was: Tony Thompson, Shaun Densmore, Connor Hampson, James Jones, Ben Harrison, Jake Moult (C), John Johnstone, Simon Richman, Jordan Hulme, James Poole, Josh Hancock.

Subs: Tom Peers, Max Harrop, Joel Bembo-Leta, Mason Walsh, Sam Sheridan

Last season our two meetings with Altrincham saw us come out on top 3-2 at the Impact Arena with two goals from Andy Monkhouse and one from Liam Hearn.

In the return game at Moss Lane we picked up a point in a 1-1 draw which was our final away game of the season, where Andy Monkhouse was again on target.

Admission to Saturday's game:

Adults £10, Concessions £7, 12-16 years old £4, Under 12 £1
