ALFRETON TOWN v WOKING PREVIEW
Thursday Sep 5, 2013
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th, 3pm
By Matt Carter
Alfreton Town will be hopeful of returning to winning ways as they take on a struggling Woking side on Saturday in the Skrill Premier at the Impact Arena.
The Reds continued to find life on the road tricky last time out at Forest Green Rovers, however, they should go into this clash in confident mood - given that they have yet to drop a point at home, with three successive wins to their name.
Woking have made a stuttering start to the new campaign with just one win in their opening five outings, further to that they have lost their last three - a return that has left them languishing in 20th position.
Alfreton will however, need to guard against complacency given that the visitors actually finished a place above them in the table last season, and the fact that Woking picked up a 3-0 victory in this very fixture - although Alfreton did avenge that result in the reverse game in Surrey.
Woking are clearly a better side than their league position suggests, nevertheless having beaten high flyers Hereford in their most recent home game, the Red will be confident of taking full advantage of their out of form opponents.
Unfortunately Nicky Law's men will enter the contest without skipper Chris Westwood who has a minor hamstring injury, although the fact that he is only likely to miss this game has come as boost.
The squad has also been lifted by the arrival of utility defender Lathaniel Rowe-Turner, who has joined the club from Luton Town and should be available to make his debut on Saturday.
