Reds on the road again looking for a vital return to winning ways at Struggling Darlington

For the seventh time in the last nine matchdays Alfreton Town are on the road in the National League North as they are scheduled to make the visit to the North East to take on Darlington FC on Saturday.

Billy Heath`s men will be eager to arrest a recent slump in results which has seen the Reds go three games without victory following a 2-1 defeat against Curzon Ashton at the Tameside Stadium in midweek in a disappointing display.
Therefore ahead of three consecutive home games at the Impact Arena where Ofton hold a strong record The Reds will be targeting a potentially crucial three points to get their play off push back on track against a Darlington side who had been marooned in the bottom four for the whole season.

Its been a difficult campaign so far for the Quakers who have been unable to arrest their slump from the end of the last season and are now on their third manager of the season. Former Gateshead and York manager Steve Watson was recently given the daunting task of keeping the Quakers in the division. Darlington currently sit in 23rd place seven points adrift of Kings Lynn in 20th place but crucially with two games in hand on the Linnets.
Steve Watson`s side have picked up a few eye-catching results recently including a home win over play off rivals Hereford so the Reds will be not under estimating this opponents. Especially given the fact the Durham side picked up a rare away at the Impact Arena back in late August.

Alfreton are five meetings in all competitions without a win against the Quakers of Darlington since a 3-2 win at Blackwell Meadows in August 2021 thanks a Tom Allan brace and a rare goal from Adam Lund.
