In our first meeting on the day of our 125th anniversary celebrations back in September we ran out deserved 3-1 winners although the day was spoiled somewhat when the former Harriers striker?, Drewe Broughton, scored for his new club. We chipped in with goals from Marc Williams, Steve Guinan and James Vincent to win the day.
Broughton is no longer with Alfreton following his sending off in their next game and is now clubless.
Tomorrow our hosts will be without goalkeeper Joe Day with a groin injury, whilst Adam Quinn faces a late fitness test on a calf strain. They are expected to give Louis Moult, brother of another former Harrier, Jake, his first league appearance for the club after impressing in their 6-0 destruction of Weymouth last Saturday in the Trophy. He signed for them last week on a month long loan from Premiership side Stoke City.
We could be giving a debut for our newest signing in the game. Anthony Malbon (left) agreed terms with the Harriers yesterday and the news will be released officially sometime today. The former Port Vale trainee has had only two other clubs, Leek Town and Newcastle Town, alternating between the two of them but scoring forty four times in two years for them both.
Apart from Danny Lewis we should be back to full strength for the visit to the Impact Arena. We were without the services of Lee Vaughan, James Vincent and Jack Byrne, through injury, for the Droylsden game but they should all be fine now. Also missing that day were Lee Hendrie and Tony Breeden because of being cup-tied while Luke Jones missed out through suspension.
Alfreton may have won handsomely at Weymouth but I can't really see them being too much trouble for us tomorrow. They are struggling in the league and must be amongst the favourites to go down (pending Darlington and Ketterings fates) so I'm fully expecting another fine win for the Harriers.
