ALFRETON Town travel to Kent on Tuesday night aiming to put even more distance between themselves and the bottom four in the Blue Square Bet Premier division.

Nicky law’s side go into the game seven points clear of the relegation places and a victory would give them a huge chance of securing their league status for a second season.

The Reds have won both of their last two away games, without conceding a goal.

Manager Nicky Law will be without leading scorer Nathan Jarman who sits the game out as he starts a two-match ban for picking up his tenth yellow card of the season against Cambridge United on Saturday.

Law is also still without central defender Adam Quinn who still requires a further week to ten days to get over a calf injury.

Ebbsfleet come into the game looking for a third victory and third clean sheet in a row having beaten Kettering Town 1-0 in Kent last Saturday and won 2-0 at Darlington the previous weekend.

In the first game of the season between the sides back on September 24 when Alfreton came back from two goals down to gain a 2-2 draw.

Goals from Liam Enver-Marum after just five minutes and Calum Willock in the 45th minute left the Reds with an uphill task.

Alfreton salvaged a point after the break with goals from Anton Brown and Nathan Jarman.
