Match preview Vs Altrincham

Date: 05-04-08 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
We'll be looking for a good result against relegation threatened Altrincham tomorrow.  Even more so after that diabolical defeat to them at the turn of the year when we lost 2-1 after going into the lead in a storm ravaged match.

Jake Sedgemore In that game both teams were taken off the pitch for their own safety when, within minutes of the game starting, a massive thunderstorm swept in over Manchester and stopped the game for ten minutes.  When the teams came back on we had lost all interest and eventually all the points.

Back then we were a team low on confidence but now it's all changed.  We are a team on a high now and it's going to continue tomorrow.

With the majority of the side rested since the Ebbsfleet win on Tuesday we should almost be at full strength with the only doubt being Chris MacKenzie.  His thigh injury wasn't as bad as first feared and a scan earlier this week showed that there was no tear but I don't think he'll be risked just yet.

That means Dean Coleman will continue between the sticks for while longer and also hope that his good form, now he's been given his chance, carries on.

Altrincham should be at full strength for this game, apart from loan player Liam King who has now returned to Rotherham.  There are no suspensions either.

They might include former Harrier Jake Sedgemore in the side but at the moment he seems to be out of favour and is expected to leave at the end of the season.  Strangely he turned down a loan deal to struggling Worcester City this week in a move that would have seen him getting first team football.

I expect us to get another three points from this game and put another nail in Alty's coffin that could see them getting relegated the proper way this time.
