Preview: Alfreton Town v Buxton

Preview: Alfreton Town v Buxton

Monday Jul 16, 2018

It's a quick turnaround for the Reds, as our pre season schedule continues to motor along; with the visit of Evo-Stik Premier side Buxton to the Impact Arena tomorrow night, kick off is 7.45pm. 

After the defeat to League Two Morecambe on Friday evening which saw the Reds come from behind to take the lead thanks to goals from Luke Shiels and Tom Denton, Billy Heath's side have a different challenge with the visit of the Bucks.

Our first two friendlies against Doncaster and Morecambe has seen the Reds work hard defensively with organisation crucial in both games so far. But Alfreton showed their attacking intent on Friday with two neatly taken goals which will breathe confidence into the team ahead of Buxton's arrival. 

A different game is expected from the previous two friendlies with the Reds looking to have more of the ball and build on their attacking play from Friday, as the side continues to settle in ahead of the new campaign. Buxton will provide another good challenge for Heath's men, after they were narrowly beaten by Stockport County 0-1 in their last friendly outing. 

A flurry of activity has welcomed the Reds during the close season with Billy Heath's squad taking shape throughout the months of May and June.

Heath has already won promotion from the National League North with two different sides in North Ferriby United in the 2015/16 season as well as at Halifax in the 2016/17 season, via the play offs.

A host of new players have arrived at the Impact, many of which Billy Heath has previously managed as the boss moulds his squad into a team to challenge and certainly improve on last term.

The Reds have also got business done early and before pre season with signings full of quality and intent for the season ahead. Excitement has been building throughout the close season as we look for a strong campaign.
