Alfreton Town are back in Vanarama National League North action on Saturday when they travel to Lancashire to take on fifth-placed AFC Fylde.

The Reds go into the game on the back of a 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions whilst Fylde will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat at Lowestoft Town in their last outing.

Nicky Law’s Reds haven’t lost on their travels since early December and will be hoping to continue their rich vein of form at the weekend.

As for the promotion-chasing Coasters, they will be looking for more consistency as they have suffered three defeats in their last five outings in the league.

Ahead of the trip to Kellamergh Park, Law said: “It will be a tough game.

“Obviously they are a good side, they are doing well.

“But away from home we have just got to worry about ourselves.

“At home last week we were a bit sloppy and we can’t afford to do that again.

“We have just got to try and keep the run going and finish the season as best we can.”

The Reds boss will have to wait for a late fitness check on striker Jamie Jackson who picked up a minor ankle injury in last Saturday’s 1-1 home draw against Corby Town.

Law also has the option of handing a debut to latest signing Joe Doyle.
