Alfreton Town are back in Vanarama National League North action on Saturday when they travel to take on eighth-placed Stockport County.
The in-form Reds travel to Cheshire this weekend in the hope of finding their fifth straight league win in a row.
Manager Nicky Law is likely to be without Todd Jordan (hamstring) and Stefan Galinski (calf) but the Reds boss is hopeful of Cliff Moyo shaking off a slight hamstring strain which brought him an early exit in the 2-1 home win over Worcester City on Tuesday night.
The Reds beat struggling Worcester City 2-1 at the Impact Arena in midweek to move up to sixth in the table.
Ryan Wilson opened the scoring on eight minutes with an absolutely stunning 30 yard shot before Jordan Robertson doubled Town's lead in the 20th minute.
All seemed like plain sailing before Lee Hughes gave Worcester a glimmer of hope with a second half header but Nicky Law's side held on to record their fourth straight victory.
Stockport lost away to Chorley in a tight affair, Stephenson's effort in the 26th minute proving enough to give Chorley all three points. On home turf, Stockport have have only won once and that was a 2-1 success against Boston United on the opening day of the season. Since then they have drawn 1-1 with North Ferriby United, lost 3-0 at home to Stalybridge Celtic and followed up with two more draws, 0-0 against Worcester City and 1-1 with Brackley Town last Saturday.
