In-form Alfreton Town make the long trip south to take on Dover Athletic looking to extend their three game winning streak.

The Reds go into the game in fine fettle having picked up ten points from the last 12 on offer, including three straight wins which have lifted the side out of the drop zone.

Injury-wise there are only doubts over Duane Courtney aside from Nathan Nicks, who continues his recuperation process from a damaged shoulder which means manager Nicky Law will have plenty of options all over the park for this game.

Dover Athletic dropped into the bottom four after a 2-0 defeat at Torquay United last Saturday, but a win for Chris Kinnear’s side would move them onto the same points total as Alfreton.

Dover will be seeking a first win in five games. The Whites have seven points so far with a 1-1 draw at Grimsby Town being added to by a 2-1 home win over Eastleigh and a 4-1 win at AFC Telford United.

Their last four games have seen them struggle for goals, scoring just once and conceding eight times, and they will be keen to improve on a run of just one win in their last seven league outings.
