Alfreton Town v Southport match preview


Alfreton Town host Southport in a Vanarama Conference relegation six-pointer on Saturday.

Southport arrive in 20th place in the table, one place but four points better off than the Reds who have also played a game more which means this is a crucial fixture with both sides battling to get away from the relegation zone.

Reds manager Nicky Law has only long-term injury victim Duane Courtney unavailable and has no new injury or suspension worries as he looks for his side to respond to last weekend’s 3-0 defeat at Woking.

Alfreton have the chance to record a rare league ‘double’ having already won 2-0 at Haig Avenue back on September 13th, 2014.

Southport are yet to score in 2015 and in their last outing they went down 1-0 at home to Gateshead last Saturday.

However, one big word of warning is that the Sandgrounders have won four and drawn two of their last eight games on the road.
