FC Halifax Town return to action again on Saturday, when they host fellow promoted club AFC Fylde at the MBi Shay Stadium.

The Shaymen are on a good run of results, being three games unbeaten which was extended after the hard fought point away at Gateshead on Bank Holiday Monday following the massive three points for Billy Heath’s  men last weekend at home to Guiseley.

AFC FyldeAFC Fylde have had four draws among their seven games played so far this season, won just the one and lost two since the start of the season.

The Bank Holiday Weekend was a good one for Dave Challinor and his team having got six points out of six, following the two-nil away win to Hartlepool United and a one-nil victory over Barrow on Monday

Challinor’s side sit comfortably in mid-table after seven games of the season, which they will be happy with but will want to build on this weekend when they visit the MBi Shay Stadium.
