Alfreton Town are back in Vanarama National League North action on Tuesday night when in-form AFC Fylde are the visitors to the Impact Arena.

Yet another narrow defeat for the Reds last weekend away to Lowestoft Town left them with one win in nine and in desperate need of a victory to avoid slipping even further down the league.

A goal 23 minutes from time from Jake Reed was enough to ensure Lowestoft all three points and a league double over The Reds, leaving Alfreton empty handed yet again and only two points above the relegation zone.

In contrast, Fylde are flying high at the minute, fourth in the league, only one defeat in eleven and back to back wins see them only four points from the summit of the Vanarama National League North.

Reds manager Nicky Law will have his options boosted by the return of both Ryan Wilson from illness and Sam Jones from a business trip.

In their most recent outing, Fylde ran out 1-0 winners away to Hednesford Town, an impressive sixth victory away from home although it was a first victory in four outings for points.

Kick-off at the Impact Arena is 7.45pm
