The Form Of The FA Cup Foe – Alfreton Town

Alfreton sit two places below ourselves in the relegation zone and if Trapdoor Broughton was not albatross enough, they have an additional trio of suspensions to contend with.  It was certainly rutting season against the Stags with both Greg Young and Anthony Wilson seeing red and Anton Brown notching his fifth yellow of the campaign.

But upbeat boss Nicky Law feels the Reds have turned a corner despite defeats against Mansfield (2-3) and Fleetwood (1-4).

“After the last two games, I really think we have turned the corner.

“For 33 minutes against Fleetwood you would not have known which team was challenging for the title and which one battling relegation.

“Then we lose Theo Streete through a moment of madness which sees him get sent off and it costs the team and the club.

“At Mansfield, we had Anthony Wilson and Greg Young sent off in the second half when we were well in control of the game at 2-0 up.

“It we had kept 11 players on the pitch we would have won that game comfortably.”

Law added: “Those two players have cost the club four, possibly six points and it won’t happen again.

“There is a little bit more belief there now and it is just a shame we didn’t get the win on Saturday to give us even more confidence.”
