NATIONAL League North bad boys Alfreton Town are looking for their first home win in seven league attempts when they host York City tomorrow.

The Reds have the fifth-worst home record in the division, taking just 14 points from 14 games, and have not won at the Impact Arena since they claimed only their third league win there, back in mid-November.

This period has seen register their worst home defeat for over half a century, with a 7-1 thrashing by Spennymoor Town matching the 1960 FA Cup thumping at the hands of Belper Town.

Alfreton can, however, claim the dubious honour of topping the FA's Fair Play table for the division (league games only), having amassed 56 yellow cards and five red from their 28 league games - a rate of two cautions per game and one dismissal nearly every six. When cup games are included, the red-card tally rises to sixth, but Alfreton drop a place to second.

Though their form places them ahead of only Nuneaton Borough, FC United of Manchester, Curzon Ashton and Ashton United in the league's home form table, manager Billy Heath may be looking forward to hosting City, whose nine points from 14 places them squarely at the foot of the away form table.

A home win would buck the trend of recent meetings between the City and Alfreton, though. Of the five games games the two have contested since 2011, none have been won by the home side - there have been four away victories and one 1-1 draw. On three of those occasions, the result would have been unchanged had the game ended at half-time.

City will not be looking forward to seeing Reds' top-scorer Reece Styche again. The striker - who has scored seven since moving to Derbyshire from divisional rivals Darlington in October - has scored five times in eight appearances against the Minstermen with Darlington, Tamworth, Gateshead, Wycombe Wanderers and Forest Green Rovers.

Alfreton's second-highest goalscorer remains Tom Denton, who was snapped up by National League outfit Chesterfield after netting six times in nine outings, ahead of Bobby Johnson on five goals.

No other Alfreton player has found the net more than five times this term. Their scorers list comprises 13 names, including three-goal contributor Richard Peniket, who is injured for tomorrow, and Minsterman Tom Allan, who is not allowed to play under the terms of his season-long loan.
