FC Halifax Town will be hosting Chester FC on Saturday. In this article, we will look at a man that could make the game difficult for Billy Heath’s team.

With Chester still sitting in the relegation zone, the late form of striker Ross Hannah is a hopeful sign for his manager. Marcus Bignot will be hoping the goals of his 31-year-old striker can help them fly up the National League table.

Chester, nicknamed the blues, will be looking for Hannah to score again this Saturday. With a goal in the FA Trophy victory over Fylde the striker has scored 4 goals in his last 5 games.

Another reason for Bignot and his team hoping for their star man to score this season is the fact that in every league game he has scored in this season, they have avoided defeat, except for a 3-2 loss at Gateshead in September.

Hannah has been at many places throughout his career. His youth career saw him at both Sheffield United and Wednesday before playing for the likes of Bradford City, Grimsby and AFC Barrow last year.

However, The Shaymen fans may recognise the danger Ross Hannah will bring to the game. He had a short stint at the club in March of 2012. While online from Bradford, Hannah bagged a very impressive 7 goals in 9 games. He then moved onto Grimsby where he had an equally impressive record of 9 goals in 14 games.

With an average of a goal every other game while at Chester in his first spell at the club. Hannah will be looking to reinstate that form this season, hopefully for his team helping Chester stay in the National League for next season.

For his form to continue, Hannah will have to score again at the MBI Shay on Saturday. The Halifax defence will have to be on top form once again to keep a clean sheet at The Shay.
