Alfreton Town will be seeking back to back wins in the National League North as we head to the J.Davidson Stadium to face Altrincham tomorrow night.
The Reds will be full of confidence as we head to Alty looking for back to back league wins after the 3-0 win over Blyth Spartans at the Impact on Saturday, our first win of the season.
The performance was once again strong and with a first half which was very even throughout with both sides cancelling each other out; we edged in front thanks to Josh Thacker's reactive strike in the box through a crowd of bodies.
The second half saw us up the pressure and the quality and we extended the lead thanks to a Bobby Johnson stunner from 25 yards before Ryan Qualter added a third with a low shot. It was the perfect second half display and Billy Heath will be pleased that the Reds are off the mark for the new season.
We head into tomorrow night's fixture looking for back to back wins for the first time this season. Our last away outing was on the opening day of the season as we fell to a late 1-0 defeat to Brackley, since then we've drawn with Boston and beat Blyth, both at the Impact. Tomorrow we'll be looking to extend our unbeaten run to three games.
Altrincham who many have pitted to have another strong season which saw them reach the play offs last season; have had a mixed start to the campaign and are still searching for a first league win.
Alty lost their opening day fixture to York (1-3) before back to back draws on the road at Chester (1-1) and Gloucester (1-1).
This will be the hosts second home league game as they look to get their season underway with a first win of the campaign.

Last Time Out:
Saturday 13th October 2018: Altrincham 3-1 Alfreton Town
Three goals in 24 first half minutes sealed the points for the Robins the last time we visited the J.Davidson Stadium. Richard Peniket would score a fine solo goal in the second half but it was a mere consolation as the first half damage secured the points.
