Thread: The Conference and non league football thread

    Re: The Conference and non league football thread

    We were superb today and without exaggeration could have had a dozen. Alfreton were very poor though, even to the extent that I think they maybe this seasons "Hyde".

    The only time that they looked half decent was just after they went down to 10 men when we were 4-0 up and they had a little spell where they played ok. 13 goals in 2 games, long may it continue. Next up Aldershot away.

    I wouldn't back FGR to win it after today's performance, but to be fair maybe they had an off day, Bristol Rovers were as good as them on the day

    Do you know what's happened to Alfreton Les? IIRC they were threatening a play-off place last season until around February, then fell away badly and seem to have picked up this season where they left off.

    I'm not too sure Stroudy. I know they lost 2 or 3 players from last season, most notably John Akinde who was their main goalscorer. Also their manager Nicky Law is currently serving a 6 match suspension and wasn't at the ground, but they really were shockingly bad. Our goalie only made 1 save of any note when we were 1-0 up.

    As I said, I do fear for them this season, although to be fair as well as us they have also played Kiddy, Wrexham and FGR, who are all tipped to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.

    On a different note, here's highlights of our game yesterday. This was edited by Gateshead and from these highlights it does look like the main difference was our finishing. Great OG to start proceeding and the 2nd goal was a brilliant strike. Really pleased for Neilson too who exorcised a few of the demons after being wrongly dismissed in the play-offs last season.
