ALFRETON TOWN v MACCLESFIELD TOWN PREVIEW
Thursday Apr 24, 2014
SATURDAY, APRIL 26th, 5.30pm
By Matt Carter
Alfreton Town will be looking to go out on a high as Macclesfield Town visit the Impact Arena for the final Skrill Premier Division clash of the 2013/14 season.
The Reds will be determined not to take their winless run, which currently stands at seven, into the new campaign, whilst the visitors themselves are hardly in the best of spirits having lost three successive games on the bounce, albeit to sides currently sitting in the top eight of the table.
Unlike many of Alfreton’s recent opponents, Macclesfield have nothing left to play for, with survival assured several weeks back
Nicky Law’s side are not yet assured a top half finish and they will be keen that is the very least they achieve in what has been an excellent season, even taking into account for the tailing off in form over these closing weeks.
Alfreton will be looking to achieve the double over the Silkmen, having won the reverse fixture at Moss Rose courtesy of a single Danny Meadows goal.
For this curtain closing encounter Nicky Law will be without the injured trio of John McGrath, Nick Fenton and Michael Wylde.
Supporters should note that the kick-off for this game is at the later time of 5.30pm.
