FC Halifax Town will look to extend their good start to the season by taking on strugglers Chesterfield in the National League on Tuesday night

The Shaymen won 2-1 at home to Solihull Moors to finish off a week which saw three wins on the bounce after a Bank Holiday weekend that saw the AFC Fylde 4-1 win in a stand out performance for the Shayman this season, following it up with a hard earned win away at Barrow, and hope to take this form in to the clash against Derbyshire side Chesterfield, who are still yet to record a win in the league this season.

Chesterfield have recorded four draws this season so far against 7 opponents failing to keep a clean sheet also this season.

In contrast, Halifax have only lost once so far this season against Wrexham and have managed to record clean sheets in two of the eight games so far this season against Hartlepool and Dagenham.

Chesterfield have however only failed to find the back of the net once in a game once this season with it being clear that most of their issues stem from the back line leaking goals.

Despite conceding early against Barrow came back from behind with two second half goals from Liam Nolan and Liam McAlinden converting from the spot for his third of the season and to give the Shayman the lead and eventually the three points, whilst McAlinden grabbed a double against Solihull Moors

Chesterfield found themselves on the end of a comfortable 2-0 defeat to play-off contenders Stockport leaving them third bottom of the National League before a 1-1 draw against Dagenham last time out

Both clubs finished on the same points last season but are on opposite sides of the table so far this season.
