ALFRETON TOWN v NUNEATON TOWN PREVIEW
Thursday Sep 18, 2014
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th, 3pm
Alfreton Town are in Vanarama Conference action on Saturday when Nuneaton Town are the visitors to the Impact Arena.
The Reds go into the game on a high after a confidence-boosting week in which they picked up seven out of nine points.
Manager Nicky Law will be looking for his side to build on their three-game unbeaten run and he is hopeful of having the double boost of both Dan Bradley and Jordan Keane being fit again for this game.
Aside from Nathan Hicks who will be out for between four and six weeks with a shoulder injury, only Duane Courtney is still on the recovery list and he should be able to begin training soon. There are no suspension problems.
Alfreton will be well advised to note that they have yet to beat Nuneaton Town in the Conference Premier having drawn one and lost the other three of four encounters so far. The Reds also succumbed to a 1-0 FA Trophy defeat at home to the 'Boro last season with the visitors obviously having a liking for their trips to Derbyshire.
Last sesaon the sides drew 1-1 in the league in Derbyshire with Nuneaton taking the honours with a 3-0 success in the reverse fixture.
You have to go back to the Conference North title-winning season for Alfreton's only home league win over Nuneaton, a 3-2 success on April 30th, 2011, the last day of the campaign in which the Reds recorded a league double over the Warwickshire club.
Nuneaton arrive having slipped into the bottom four in the table after a 3-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening.
The 'Boro have won just one of their last four league games, a 1-0 home win over Forest Green Rovers on a week last Tuesday.
On their travels, Nuneaton have just one point from five games having drawn 0-0 at Grimsby Town, and suffered four defeats, 1-0 at Wrexham, 2-0 at Braintree Town and 4-0 at Torquay United before the 3-1 reverse at Bristol Rovers.
The run of recent form cost manager Brian Reid his job last week.
Andy Brown is top scorer in the league so far for Nuneaton with two goals.
