THREE more hugely important Vanarama National League North points on the line later as the Magpies (7th, 38pts) welcome Alfreton Town (12th, 33pts) to the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium.
Andy Preece’s men have had to impress on the road of late (2W/2D), with only one home game since early December. For our opponents it’s no wins and only one goal scored in their last four away league outings.
The hunt for more points continues. We’ve got ourselves into a great league position just inside the playoff spots and now’s the time to start cementing that position. It won’t be easy against what is a very good Alfreton side, but we back ourselves to continue our good run – Andy Preece
Alfreton Town (alfretontownfootballclub.com)
- Founded 1959
- Manager Billy Heath (since May 2018)
- This season 12th in Vanarama National League North (33pts from 23 games)
A tense and nervy game over the August Bank Holiday was broken open by Jon Ustabaşi with 13 minutes remaining, and finished as a contest by Ollie Shenton with a minute to go – 552 saw it.
