Alfreton Town are back in Vanarama National League North action on Saturday when they travel to take on mid-table Stalybridge Celtic.

Reds’ manager Nicky Law has no new injury worries and will be looking for his side to bounce back from the 3-2 home defeat against AFC Telford United in midweek.

That loss ended his side’s 13-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

Despite the home defeat, Law’s side have won their last five away games in the league and a victory at Bower Fold could see the Reds close the gap on the play-off places.

Celtic go into the game in 14th place in the table with five wins, four draws and five defeats on home soil and they are currently seven points clear of the relegation places.

In their latest outing, Liam Watson’s Celtic side were held to a stunning 5-5 draw by AFC Telford United last Saturday but they will be seeking a first league win in four games.

However, they will be without highly-rated Bohan Dixon who has been sold to AFC Fylde for an undisclosed fee.
