ALFRETON TOWN v KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS PREVIEW
Friday Nov 23, 2012
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24th, 3pm
Alfreton Town return to the Impact Arena for the first time in three outings when they host Blue Square Bet Premier Division rivals Kidderminster Harriers in FA Carlsberg Trophy first round proper action.
Reds boss Nicky Law will be without central defenders Leigh Franks (ankle) and Ross Killock (facial) through injury but he has no other injury worries and no suspensions to contend with.
Law also receives a timely boost of having skipper Darran Kempson back from injury and he also has latest signings Danny Emerton and Gavan Holohan available for selection.
Steve Burr's Kidderminster arrive in good form having won their last two games. They are unbeaten in their last three outings and also their last three games on the road which included a terrific 4-2 win at Grimsby Town in the FA Cup.
It is a first ever cup tie in any competition between the sides but they have already met once this season with the spoils being shared in an entertaining 1-1 league draw at the Impact Arena back on September 22nd in front of 659.
Admission charges for this Trophy tie have been reduced to £14 for adults and £10 for concessions.
Junior Reds admission will remain at £3 per member so long as they are accompanied by a full paying adult.
Supporters should note that the Early Bird Matchday Ticket scheme will NOT be in operation for this tie which is an all pay game under FA regulations.
Saturday's game is not subject to segregation but visiting fans are requested to enter the stadium via the away turnstiles at the Alma Street end of the ground.
The match day programme is priced at £3. Catering and toilet facilities are available for away fans as well as covered terracing and a limited number of covered seats.
