by James Aspinall and Kev Miles
Alfreton Town head to deepest Suffolk on Saturday to face Lowestoft Town in Vanarama National League North action.
Reds manager Nicky Law will have latest signing Lindon Meikle available and central defender Sam Berry has returned from a loan spell at Mickleover Sports.
He will have to wait for very late fitness checks on both Joe Leesley and Dan Bradley but will have to shuffle his pack with three players unfortunately unavailable.
Sam Jones is away on business in South Africa, Cliff Mayo has flown to see a sick relative and Jordan Robertson has a hamstring strain.
The Reds travel to Lowestoft Town in search of turning their recent fortunes around and get back to winning ways.
After one win in the last eight league games and taking four points from a possible 24, it's vital that the Reds get going again.
They face a Lowestoft side just hovering above relegation but who are unbeaten in their last three with a 1-0 win over Gloucester City and impressive 2-2 draws against Solihull Moors and Stockport County.
Despite their league position, the Trawlerboys will be confident and up for a game which is important to both sides. For Alfreton it is a chance to turn their recent form around and for Lowestoft, an opportunity to continuetheir form and pull further away from the relegation zone.
Lowestoft also have the chance to record a league double over the Reds having won 1-0 at the Impact Arena way back on Tuesday, August 11th thanks to a 60th minute Jake Reed goal.
Kick-off at Crown Meadow is 3pm.
