Vanarama Conference club Alfreton Town can now concentrate solely on league survival after a 3-1 home defeat…..
….by Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Matlock Town ended their interest in the Derbyshire Senior Cup on Tuesday evening.
It was a result which means Alfreton are now out of all cup competitions this season and focus will be total for the remaining eighteen league games.
However, the survival bid looks set to receive a boost with a signing imminent ahead of this Saturday’s hugely important trip to Kent to face Welling United.
Manager Nicky Law should also receive another fillip for the weekend’s game with midfield man Dan Bradley expected to be available again after recovering from a slight thigh strain which has kept him out of the past two games.
It is the first meeting of the season between the sides and a crucial one as Welling sit two places outside of the relegation places, nine points ahead of Alfreton but having played two games more.
