Alfreton Town aiming to upset Wrexham

ALFRETON Town have the first of a massive August Bank Holiday double-header when they welcome second-placed Wrexham to the Impact Arena on Saturday.

Reds manager Nicky Law will be looking for his side to build on the point gained in the 1-1 draw at Darlington in midweek but he will be without long-term injury victims Anthony Wilson and Nathan Arnold.

There are no other injury concerns and no suspensions with Law choosing from a squad of 17.

Managed by former Derby County and Liverpool striker Dean Saunders, Wrexham arrive unbeaten in their opening four games during which time they have conceded just two goals.

The visitors opened the season with a 1-1 home draw against Cambridge United but they come into Saturday’s game on the back of a three-match winning run.

They have achieved victories in both of their away games so far, 2-0 at Bath City and 2-1 at Lincoln City in front of the TV cameras last Friday.

Their latest game on Tuesday evening saw a 3-0 home win in front of 3,353 over a previously unbeaten Tamworth side.

With over 400 Wrexham fans expected to make the journey from North Wales, there should be a terrific atmosphere.

Kick-off at the Impact Arena is 3pm.

On August Bank Holiday monday, Alfreton travel to take on third-placed York City who are managed by former Reds bosses Gary Mills and Darron Gee.
