ALFRETON TOWN v HYDE FC

Tuesday night’s Skrill Premier Division fixture with Hyde provides Alfreton with an ideal opportunity to bounce back from the disappointment of conceding a stoppage time equaliser against Lincoln City on Saturday.
The game at the Impact Arena will be a pivotal clash for the visitors, with any possible defeat relegating them from the Conference Premier.
Hyde have picked up just one win and nine points to date, whilst they were thumped last time out 5-1 at home by FC Halifax – a result which took their goals conceded tally to 96.
Alfreton though will need to avoid complacency against a side that will be determined stave off relegation, for another few days at least.
The Reds have already witnessed first-hand the visitor’s ability to battle, taking into account they had to come from behind to win the reverse fixture 2-1 via two goals in the final fifteen minutes from Dan Bradley and Chris Westwood.
Despite the gut wrenching late Lincoln leveller, Alfreton did perform really well in that contest and a similar display should take them to a first win in four – in the process giving them a much needed cushion on the play-off chasing back.
With no new injuries, manager Law will just be without long-term absentee John McGrath.
