Alfreton Town host Lowestoft Town at the Impact Arena in Vanarama National League North action on Tuesday night and both teams will be wanting to hit some early season form.

Both teams managed to get points on the board after the first game of the season and will look to build on it.

Alfreton managed to scrap a draw at Bradford Park AVenue after they recovered from a two-goal deficit with nine men to draw 2-2.

Michael Potts put Bradford 2-0 up with 32 minutes on the clock. Andi Thanoj managed to halve the deficit with a brilliant free-kick just past the hour mark.

Red cards for Sam Berry and Tom Allan looked to leave Bradford in a comfortable position but the Reds were awarded a penalty deep into injury-time at the of the game which Joe Ironside slotted home.

Lowestoft made the perfect start to their season last Saturday with an impressive 3-0 victory over AFC Telford United in Suffolk.

Three goals in eight minutes wrapped up the points for Lowestoft as Jake Reed scored twice on the opening day and Danny Crow also found the net.

Alfreton will be looking to bag their first win of the season, whereas Lowestoft will be wanting another perfect performance against the Reds.
