FC Halifax Town will travel to AFC Fylde on Tuesday night in the Vanarama National League, 7.45pm kick-off.

The Shaymen will be looking to play their first game since the 3-0 defeat at Southend United on the 6th January due to recent postponements.

Town will be hoping for a 7th away victory of the season having picked up wins at Oldham, Rochdale, Woking, Ebbsfleet, Gateshead and Altrincham so far this season.

Chris Millington’s side have lost just once in the last five games but have failed to score in the last two and find themselves 9th in the table.

AFC Fylde are 22nd in the league table with 4 wins, 5 draws and 5 defeats on home soil this season which compares to just 2 wins, 2 draws and 9 defeats on the road.

They have started 2024 well with two home wins over Hartlepool and Rochdale, they also haven’t played a league game since the 9th January.

The win on New Year’s Day brought an end to a run of 7 games without a victory.

There will be a couple of familiar faces in the home squad with Sam Graham and Pierce Bird.

The two sides drew 2-2 at the Shay back in November with the visitors down to 10 men as Danny Whitehead was sent off they equalised 90 + 5 to earn a point.
