SOUTHPORT v ALFRETON TOWN PREVIEW
Friday Sep 12, 2014
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th, 3pm
Alfreton Town are on the road on Saturday when they travel to take on Southport in Vanarama Conference action.
Reds manager Nicky Law will be looking for his side to build on a first point of the season gained on Tuesday night in a 1-1 home draw with Altrincham.
Law will have both Lathaniel Rowe-Turner and Anthony Howell available again after suspension but there are still injury doubts over Dan Bradley, Duane Courtney, Chris Smith and Paul Clayton. Nathan Hicks is definitely out having been hospitalised with a shoulder injury during Tuesday night's game against Altrincham. Southport have eight points from two wins and two draws so far. The victories have both been achieved on home soil with a 2-1 win over Altrincham being added to an impressive 1-0 success over Kidderminster Harriers on Tuesday night.
The draws were gleaned from a goalless stalemate at Torquay United and a 3-3 sharing of the points at AFC Telford United our opponents at the Impact Arena next Tuesday evening.
Alfreton lost 2-1 at Haig Avenue last season on Tuesday, September 24th and won the return fixture by the same scoreline at the Impact Arena on Saturday, December 28th.
