FC Halifax Town will travel to the south coast this weekend to take on 18th placed Eastleigh in the Vanarama National League.

Town are 4th in the table going into the game which will be followed by three home games against Sutton United, Woking and Ebbsfleet United.

In other games, the league leaders Barrow will be looking to return to winning ways with a home game against Dagenham. Barrow were 2-0 up in their last game away at Sutton but the hosts hit back with two goals and the points were shared. The Daggers have just one loss in their last 8 league games and they beat Solihull 2-0 at home last weekend.

Third placed Boreham Wood will face a home game against Hartlepool United. They were beaten in midweek by Aldershot Town for their first defeat since the 26th October in the league. Hartlepool have won three out of their last four league games including a 2-0 win over Notts County

Yeovil Town are a point behind the Shaymen and they will face a home game against Wrexham on Saturday. The Glovers have not won since New Year’s Day and have drawn 3 lost 3 since then.Β  Wrexham won 2-0 at Bromley which was their third win in their last five games

It’s 8th vs 6th as Solihull Moors will entertain Dover Athletic with just two points separating the sides. Solihull have just won win in the last 8 games, whilst Dover have won three out of their last four including a win over Barrow and a 5-1 win over AFC Fylde last time out.

Bromley are outside the play-offs on goal difference and they will entertain 16th palced Sutton United. Bromley have not won a league game since New Year’s Day and have picked up just one point from their last seven games. They have failed to score in their last two games. Sutton have drawn their last four games on the bounce.

Stockport County will travel to Ebbsfleet United also outside the play-offs on goal difference in 10th place. They haven’t won away in their last four games and have just one win in 8. Ebbsfleet have picked up 10 points from the last 15 on offer and are narrowing the gap to possible safety to just five points.

Woking will host Maidenhead United on the back of two 1-1 draws against Notts County and Stockport County which ended a run of two losses. Maidenhead lost to Ebbsfleet in midweek making it back to back defeats and will be looking for a win to help ease any relegation fears

Torquay were 1-0 winners over the Shaymen last weekend and they will be at home again this time hosting Chorley at Plainmoor. The league’s bottom side haven’t won since the end of November and haven’t scored in their last two games.

In the FA Trophy, Barnet will host Halesowen who knocked the Shaymen out in the last round, Notts County will face Aveley whilst there is an all National League game with AFC Fylde entertaining Harrogate Town.
