Date: Saturday 26 March 2016\r\n\r\nCompetition: Vanarama National League North\r\n\r\nKick-Off: 15:00\r\n\r\nLocation: Impact Arena, Alfreton\r\n\r\nGloucester City travel to Alfreton Town tomorrow for their first of a double fixture over the Bank Holiday weekend.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers come into the game off the back of a disappointing 2-0 loss at home to Solihull Moors on Saturday, where they had good spells in the game.\r\n\r\nTigers boss Tim Harris moved to bolster his attacking options ahead of the match by bringing in Louis Robles from Wigan Athletic until the end of the season.\r\n\r\nRobles, 19, joined the Tigers until the end of season from the Latics on deadline day for new player registrations after on-loan Cheltenham Town striker Bobbie Dale was ruled out for the rest of the campaign with an ankle injury.\r\n\r\nHarris is hoping a good return of points from their two games over the Easter weekend, with a trip to mid-table Alfreton on Saturday followed by a home game against play-off chasing Nuneaton on Monday, can help secure their safety.\r\n\r\nHe said: “We have stuttered a bit. We’ve had problems in terms of selection with suspensions, injuries and unavailability has disrupted us but it’s all about getting points on the board and we haven’t done that in the last two games.\r\n\r\n”We could really do with getting a win under our belt and this weekend is a great opportunity for us.\r\n\r\n”We’re not playing badly we’re just not getting our just rewards but hopefully we will this weekend.\r\n\r\n”Alfreton is never an easy place to go. They’re not going to go up or go down so it’s a good opportunity to go there and get a victory and then we face Nuneaton which should be a cracking fixture.\r\n\r\nThe opponents: \r\n\r\nTo read more on the history of Alfreton Town, visit their Wikipedia page.\r\n\r\nTeam news: \r\n\r\nBobbie Dale is out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.\r\n\r\nLouis Robles is available for selection following his deadline day loan signing from Wigan Athletic.
