FC Halifax Town entertain League Two side Carlisle United at the MBi Shay Stadium tomorrow as Billy Heath continues his preparations for the 2017/18 season.

Heath saw his side beat League One opposition on Tuesday night with a 2-0 win over local neighbours Rochdale.

It was the third win out of four games so far in pre-season which has also seen wins against lower division sides in Brighouse Town and Gainsborough Trinity but seen defeat at Alfreton Town last weekend.

One player Heath will be without tomorrow is defender Kevin Roberts, who left the Club yesterday to go full time with Vanarama National League side Wrexham

However there will be a familiar face in the Town squad for our visitors as Ben Tomlinson was at Carlisle United during the 2016/17 season before joining the Shaymen this week after a trial with the Club.

The two sides have never met since the Club’s reformation in 2008 and the last time Carlisle United came to the Shay in a game was back in the 2004/05 season.
