ALFRETON TOWN v WOKING PREVIEW
Thursday Feb 7, 2013
Alfreton Town head into this Saturday's Blue Square Bet Premier Division home game against in-form Woking with the chance to record a first league double of the season.
Reds manager Nicky Law will be without Anton Brown who picked up a hamstring strain in the midweek Derbyshire Senior Cup romp at Mickleover Royals and central defender Adam Quinn will need a late check on a slight calf strain.
However, Law will have Louie Soares available again after ineligibility ruled him out of the last three games and the Reds boss will have plenty of selection options all over the park with no other injury or suspension worries and Scott Boden and Steven Hewitt also returning to the squad.
Alfreton won the first encounter of the season between the sides 2-1 on November 17th with Paul Clayton netting a brace on 26 and 54 minutes for the Reds, Brett Williams equalising on 39 for the Cards.
Following their 4-2 defeat at league leaders Grimsby Town last Saturday, Alfreton slipped to 17th in the table and are urgently in need of a first win in the league in five games as they sit five points above the relegation places.
Woking arrive in 11th place in the table, six places and four points better off than the Reds and with a game in hand.
The Cards have a total of 38 points but only ten of those have been picked up on their travels with three wins, one draw and nine defeats away from Surrey so far this season.
However, one big word of warning is that Garry Hill's side arrive in peak form and with five wins and one draw in their last six league outings, are the division's top form side.
Top scorer for Woking in the league is Bradley Bubb who has hit 11 so far. Kevin Betsy is the second highest with 7.
There is no segregation in place for the Woking league fixture but visiting fans are requested to enter the stadium via the away turnstiles at the Alma Street end of the Impact Arena only.
