ALFRETON TOWN v DARTFORD
Friday Dec 20, 2013
HUGE DISCOUNTS ON ADMISSION - FREE FOR UNDER-16S
Alfreton Town have a golden chance to build on the superb victory at Kidderminster Harriers last weekend when they clash with struggling Dartford at the Impact Arena on Saturday in the Skrill Premier.
While the Reds should be in buoyant mood following their 3-1 victory against third-placed Kidderminster, the visitors are currently enduring a nightmare run which has seen them lose eight games on the bounce - a run which has contributed to their slump to second bottom of the league.
Prior to last week's win Alfreton had been going through somewhat of a mini slide of their own, which saw them lose four consecutive league and cup encounters - which makes that victory all the more impressive. The Reds showed terrific character and mental strength to come back from behind to claim their success, whilst the result is all the more impressive considering they were without keeper Ross Atkins and several other first team regulars.
Nicky Law's side should be boosted by the return of Atkins on Saturday, although on the opposite end of the spectrum John Akinde who was a constant thorn in Kidderminster's side last week is missing through suspension and Josh Law remains a doubt for the Dartford encounter.
On the opening day of the campaign Alfreton were beaten in the corresponding fixture in Dartford, at which point few would have anticipated the club to be pushing on the play-off positions at the half-way stage of the campaign.
Thus far The Reds have been excellent at home throughout with eight wins from eleven fixtures and with Dartford having lost nine of eleven on the road, Alfreton have a perfect opportunity to push into the play-off spots and send their supporters away full of festive cheer.
Home and away fans can take advantage of the act that Alfreton have greatly reduced their admission prices for this fixture and under-16s can get in for FREE so long as they are accompanied by an adult.
Prices for this game are: £12 for adults aged between 22 and 64), concessions (65 and over) are down to £10, a young adult (aged 17 to 21) is just £5 and children under 16 can once again get in for free provided that they are accompanied by an adult.
