Law is looking to bring in signing

Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law is hopeful of boosting his injury-hit squad with at least one loan signing ahead of two big league games in four days.

Law will be looking for his side to extend their unbeaten league run to six when they head to Macclesfield on Saturday, before hosting Grimsby.

Law’s squad is currently slightly thin with injuries to midfeld man Anton Brown, defender Adam Quinn and striker Paul Clayton. The latest, and possibly biggest blow of all, is the injury to the ultra-consistent Brown who exited Saturday’s 1-1 home draw after just eight minutes after feeling his calf ‘pop’. The injury is likely to keep him out for a minimum of three weeks.

Law reflected: “The loss of Anton was a huge blow as he is such a big player for us. And, with the amount of injuries we currently have, we are now working hard towards trying to bring in at least one reinforcement.”

Brown, still only 25, is the club’s current longest-serving player with well over 250 games under his belt since joining the Reds in the summer of 2006.
