Match preview Vs Altrincham

Date: 09-12-06 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
After last weeks stunning victory at high flying Gravesend it's back to (soggy) home turf for a game against low flying Altrincham.    General consensus is that it's high time our away form was transferred to Aggborough and we have got to start getting some results there soon.

Just three home wins all season, and one of those was in the FA Cup, does not make for plenty of points and we have got to get over this tendency to clam up in front of a home crowd.

Lucky for us Alty are also going through a bit of a slump at the moment and have dropped from mid table a few weeks ago to the edge of the relegation zone where they now sit just below us.    We are not clear of that dreaded zone ourselves just yet but we're getting there slowly and the only problem is the inconsistency that keeps dropping us back into it.

Altrincham are also just as bad as us when it comes to scoring goals.    Their twenty two goals is only slightly better than our meagre twenty one but that also has been increasing in recent weeks.

Our visitors poor scoring record stems from the loss of Colin Little for the past two months due to injury and the in-ability to get a recognised striker in during the recent transfer rush.

They'll also be without defender Karl Munroe for the game tomorrow after he picked up his fifth booking of the season in the home defeat to Nigel Cloughs Burton Albion last Saturday.

Our only doubt is Stuart Whitehead following his hamstring injury from the Stevenage defeat two weeks ago.    It's doubtful if he'll be fit for tomorrow.

I expect us to win this game and rightfully so.
