FOREST GREEN ROVERS v ALFRETON TOWN PREVIEW
Friday Aug 15, 2014
SATURDAY, AUGUST 16th, 3pm
Alfreton Town go in search of their first Vanarama Conference points of the season on Saturday when they travel to take on Forest Green Rovers.
Another tough test awaits as Rovers have begun the season in style with two wins, a 1-0 success at Southport on the opening day of the campaign being added to by a 2-1 home win over Chester on Tuesday night.
The much-travelled and prolific Lee Hughes netted the winner at Southport whilst Clovis Kamdjo and Jon Parkin were on target against Chester in midweek.
Acting Reds manager Russ O'Neill is hopeful defender Duane Courtney will be available for selection after missing the first two games with an ankle injury picked up in a pre-season game and there are no other injury worries.
Last season saw honours shared with both sides winning their respective home games. The Reds recording a 3-2 win at the Impact Arena on October 5th to gain revenge for a 3-1 reverse in Gloucestershire on August 31st.
ATFC Supporters' Association transport for the game departs at 9am and seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 07857 558401.
