Ebbsfleet United v Alfreton Town
At Stonebridge Road
By Tom Lawler
ALFRETON Town travel to mid-table Ebbsfleet United this weekend as they continue their bid to survive in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
The Reds currently sit 22nd in the Conference Premier, three points away from climbing out of the relegation-zone.
Nicky Law's task will be made slightly harder this weekend with a number of injuries and suspensions to deal with.
Goalkeeper Joe Day is still out through injury whilst defender Leigh Franks will be absent after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring problem picked up against Luton Town a fortnight ago.
The Reds will also be missing Louis Moult and Adam Quinn who serve the last game of their bans picked up in previous weeks. Alfreton have been in average league form recently picking up seven points from their last six games whilst their Saturday's opponents have been slightly better with nine points from a possible 18.
The Fleet currently sit 15th in the Conference Premier and will be looking to climb further away from the relegation-zone.
The only other time both these sides met was earlier on in the season when Alfreton came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at the Impact Arena.
Liam Enver-Marum and Calum Willock raced the Fleet into a two-goal lead before Anton Brown and Nathan Jarman completed the comeback for the Reds.
