ALFRETON TOWN v TORQUAY UNITED PREVIEW
Thursday Oct 9, 2014
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11th, 5.30pm
Alfreton Town are back in Vanarama Conference action on Saturday when they take on high-flying Torquay United in front of the BT Sport television cameras.
Due to the game being televised live, there is a later than usual kick-off time at the Impact Arena of 5.30pm.
Alfreton manager Nicky Law will be looking for his side to end a four-game losing streak during which they have not registered a goal.
Law is expecting to have defender Jordan Keane available despite having stitches in a head wound during the 2-0 midweek defeat at Gateshead.
Definitely missing are midfield men Nathan Hicks and Andi Thanoj, both long-term injury casualties and there are doubts over central defender Chris Smith who has a broken finger and midfield man David Mellor who has a minor back injury which will need a late fitness check.
Torquay United were relegated from Sky Bet League Two last season but have adapted well to Vanarama Conference life and are currently sat in fifth place in the table five points behind leaders Barnet but with a game in hand.
On their travels so far, the Gulls have won three times, drawn once - a goalless scoreline at Dartford, and lost three times.
The wins were at Lincoln City (3-1), Chester (2-0) and Grimsby Town (2-0).
Defeats have been tasted at Gateshead (3-1) on the opening day of the season, 4-3 at AFC Telford United and 2-1 at Forest Green Rovers.
United's last outing was last Saturday when they came from behind to defeat Wrexham 2-1 at Plainmoor.
