GRIMSBY TOWN v ALFRETON TOWN PREVIEW
Friday Feb 1, 2013
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2nd, 2013, 3pm
Alfreton Town face possibly their toughest game of the Blue Square Bet Premier Division season so far when they travel to take on league leaders Grimsby Town on Saturday.
Reds manager Nicky Law has no injuries or suspensions to contend with and has only Louie Soares unavailable as he is ineligible under the conditions of his loan deal with the club from parent club Grimsby.
Law has options all over the field, particularly with striker Scott Boden and midfield man Steven Hewitt having joined the club on loan from Chesterfield and Burnley respectively just before the transfer deadline.
The Mariners have won all three league encounters between the sides so far, the latest being a 2-0 win in front of 1,192 at the Impact Arena earlier this season thanks to goals from the now departed Scott Nielson on 39 minutes and Ross Hannah on 88.
The previous two games ended in 5-2 victories for Grimsby in Alfreton's first season in the Conference Premier Division.
Grimsby have strengthened hugely in January and despite former Red Liam Hearn not being back to fitness yet, they have a massive array of attacking talent.
