FC Halifax Town are back in action on Tuesday night with AFC Fylde heading to the Shay in the Vanarama National League, 7.45pm kick-off.

The Shaymen go into the game on the back of three straight home wins in the league including a 1-0 victory over Wealdstone at the Shay on Saturday.

Town sit 7th in the table after 20 games and have now won four, drawn four and lost only 2 on home soil this season in the league.

A win over 23rd placed AFC Fylde could see Chris Millington’s side rise to 5th in the table depending on other results.

AFC Fylde have struggled since their promotion from the National League North last season with just 2 wins, a draw and 7 defeats on the road this season

They have lost their last two games without scoring 1-0 away at Bromley and a 2-0 defeat at home to York City but they had won their previous two 4-0 at Gateshead and 3-0 at home to Oldham Athletic.

AFC Fylde have pikced up 11 points from the last 30 on offer

Their top scorers are Nick Haughton and Jonathan Ustabasi who both have 5 goals this season.

There will be a couple of familiar faces in their squad with Gold Omotayo and Pierce Bird both having played for the Shaymen previously.
