Match Preview – Alfreton Town

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

Bradford (Park Avenue) look to carry momentum from a first point of the season with a trip to Alfreton Town this Saturday.

Marcus Law’s Avenue notched their first point on the board with a 1-1 draw at Gateshead on Tuesday evening.

Lewis Knight scored the club’s first goal of the season in the draw, finding the top corner on the end of an Elliott Holmes cross.

Law will be looking for his side to take some momentum from a positive result and performance, and he has strengthened his squad with the signing of experienced goalkeeper Rhys Taylor.

Hull City loanee Charlie Andrew returned to his parent club to allow the manager to bring in a more experienced number one, something he has expressed his desire to do throughout the team.

Former Bradford defenders Ryan Qualter and Shane Killock are among the familiar faces throughout an Alfreton squad which has won one and drawn one of its four games so far this season.

And Avenue return to North Street with a good record, having won on every visit since their relegation from the National League in 2015.

A second-half Connor Branson goal saw Avenue nick a 1-0 victory last September, before a 1-1 draw when the sides last met at Horsfall in April.
