SOUTHPORT v ALFRETON TOWN PREVIEW AND TRAVEL DETAILS
Friday Dec 2, 2011
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3rd, 3pm
ALFRETON Town travel to high-flying Southport on Saturday.
Nicky Law's side will be aiming to end their barren run on the road which has brought defeats in all of the last eight Blue Square Bet Premier Division games.
Reds boss Law welcomes back Leigh Franks and Matt Wilson from injury but will be without Jamie Mullan who serves the second of a three-game suspension and Adie Hawes and Chris Senior who have gone out on loan for a month to Altrincham and Guiseley respectively.
The fixture is the second of a trilogy against the Sandgrounders this season with the sides sharing a point from a goalless draw at the Impact Arena in the second game of the season. A third game follows next Saturday when the Lancashire club visit Alfreton for an FA Carlsberg Trophy first round tie.
Southport have been in very impressive form of late, winning their last eight away games. However, their home form gives rise to hopes of getting something from the game for Alfreton as Liam Watson's side have lost three times, drawn four and won four from their 11 home games so far this season, scoring 14 and conceding 18 on home turf.
