Alfreton Town aim to shoot down Luton Town for second time this season

Alfreton Town have the chance of a first league double of the season on Saturday when they travel to fifth-placed Luton Town.

The Reds recorded a deserved 3-0 home success over the Hatters back on 8th September thanks to a brace of goals from Anthony Wilson and a Dan Bradley penalty.

But, the task of beating the same opposition in the Blue Square Bet Premier Division twice in the same season for points is an extremely difficult one.

Nicky Law’s side go into the Luton fixture looking for a first win in three outings in all competitions having gone out of the FA Trophy and FA Cup in successive weekends and then seen Tuesday night’s scheduled home league game against Wrexham postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

However, the Reds are still in very good shape though despite the defeats.

Manager Law has been boosted by 18-year-old central defender Ross Killock extending his youth loan from Leeds United for another month and the Reds will travel to Kenilworth Road with a full strength squad as the Reds look to bounce back from their FA Cup defeat.

Last season Alfreton fell to a somewhat unfortunate single-goal defeat at Kenilworth Road on January 28 and were unlucky not to beat the Hatters in the return fixture on Easter Monday, the game in Derbyshire finishing goalless.
