LAW: WE JUST NEED OUR EARLY SEASON SELF BELIEF
Thursday Nov 5, 2015
Travel sick Alfreton Town head into a fifth successive away game this Saturday when they go to high-flying Nuneaton Town to contest more Vanarama National League North points.
The game is a also a seventh on the road from the last eight games in all competitions for Town.
The Reds halted a run of three successive league defeats with a 1-1 draw at bottom-of-the-table AFC Telford United last Saturday but could not take advantage of playing against ten men for the last 71 minutes of the game after the hosts had a man sent off early doors.
Manager Nicky Law knows another difficult game is in prospect this weekend against a side who are are just two points shy of top position in the division
However, Law feels his side are not far away from turning their fortunes around and feels confidence and self-belief are key to doing just that.
“This will be another tough game against a full time team who have had a good start to the season under manager Kevin Wilson.
“We have just got to keep going get our early season belief back and I am sure we will be fine” said the Reds boss.
Nuneaton have won their last three games and lost only one of their last seven league games.
This Saturday’s game at Nuneaton will kick-off at the earlier time of 2pm as the Warwickshire club are having problems with their floodlights.
With this in mind, ATFC Supporters' Association transport to this fixture will now depart at 10am, slightly earlier than originally advertised. Seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 07857 558401.
The Reds have a much-needed home game next Tuesday when North Ferriby United are the visitors to the Impact Arena for a league game which kicks-off at 7.45pm.
It will be a first home outing since October 3rd.
Change of date
Alfreton Town’s Vanarama National North home league game against AFC Fylde has been rearranged for Tuesday, December 8th. Kick-off will be 7.45pm.
The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, November 7th but the Lancashire club are still involved in the Emirates FA Cup.
