The Reds will hoping for some better luck when travelling to Broadhurst Park this coming Tuesday for a Vanarama National League North encounter, kick-off 7.45 pm.

The Reds have narrowly lost their last three games by a single goal to three of the division's top sides who are all full time. Alfreton have now reached a critical stage of the season lying in 16th place in the table, four points above the relegation zone; but only six points from the play-off positions.

FC United of Manchester are on a good home run having won their last five competitive games at Broadhurst Park, the last one being on Saturday when they defeated AFC Telford United 3-1. Telford took an early lead when FC United keeper Lloyd Allinson fumbled a long range strike from Henry Cowans.

The hosts were level on 28 minutes with a smart finish from their new temporary player-manager, Tom Greaves. The second half saw FC United take the three points to move them out of the drop zone with two goals from Jason Gilchrist the second a sublime chip from 35 yards over Telford keeper Jasbir Singh.

The FC United of Manchester Team was: Lloyd Allinson, Joel Senior, Jordan Fagbola, Scott Kay (C), Matthew Hughes, Sam Baird, Kieran Flynn, Michael Jones, Tom Greaves, Jason Gilchrist, Joel Logan.

Subs: Zac Corbett, Craig Lindfield, Tyrell Palmer, Connor McCarthy, Steven Irwin.
