Nicky Law’s men are in some serious form, unbeaten in their last thirteen games in all competitions, eight wins in their last ten games and they will be hoping for more of the same.

In their last outing, they overturned promotion hopefuls AFC Fylde, who slipped out of the play-offs due to the defeat. Dan Bradley scored the only goal of the game in the 40th minute, as Alfreton held on to the 1-0 lead until the final whistle was blown.

Despite only one win in five for the Shropshire side, Telford have managed to score in eight consecutive games and keep games tight so the Reds will need to be wary.

In their last outing United managed a spectacular 5 -5 draw away at Stalybridge Celtic, although they did manage to lose a 5-2 lead, as Stalybridge scored three times in the last 27 minutes to salvage a point and deny the bottom side a much needed victory.

If Telford would have won, the extra two points would have taken them to 20th, and just two points behind Brackley who are on the verge of the relegation places.

The sides shared the points from a 1-1 draw at The New Bucks Head back on Saturday, October 31st.

Telford took a third minute lead courtesy of Connor McCarthy’s strike and the Shropshire club held out for a point despite having Sean Clancy sent off for a lunging tackle on Todd Jordan after only 19 minutes of the game.

Sam Jones netted Alfreton’s equaliser on 37 minutes.
