Reds are off on their travels again

Alfreton Town are on the road for a fourth time in five games when they visit rejuvenated Hyde FC in Blue Square Bet Premier Division action tonight (Tuesday).

Reds’ manager Nicky Law is again without skipper Darran Kempson, who is still recovering from a knee injury but there are no new injury worries and no suspensions.

The Reds will be aiming for a third successive victory and a fifth on the road in the league this season as they look to follow up last Saturday’s 2-1 win at Woking.

Hyde had a torrid start to life in the division but in recent weeks they have shown their true capabities, recording four wins from their last five results, the latest being an impressive 3-1 success at Newport County, who were knocked off of the top of the league by virtue of the defeat last Saturday.

The Tamesiders have won three, drawn three and lost just two of their eight home league games played so far and, a fortnight ago, they sent in-form Grimsby Town to a rare defeat.

Indeed, their home exploits are responsible for 12 of their total of 19 points so far.

ATFC Supporters’ Association transport departs at 5.15pm and seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 07857 558401.
