It’s 3rd vs 5th at the Shay in front of the BT Sport cameras on Easter Monday as FC Halifax Town will host Chesterfield, 5.20pm kick-off.

The Shaymen will start the game four points above their visitors having played the same number of games.

Town are unbeaten in the last four games with two wins and two draws which include the 1-1 draw away at Altrincham on Good Friday.

The result left the Shaymen in third with league leaders Stockport County losing away at Grimsby and Wrexham sharing the points with Solihull Moors.

Chesterfield didn’t play on Good Friday and will be looking for back to back wins for the first time since the start of March when they beat Notts County and Yeovil Town as they beat Wealdstone 2-1 at Grosvenor Vale.

They have picked up 15 points from the last 27 on offer and they will be looking for a 10th away victory of the campaign.

Their top goalscorer is Kabongo Tshimanga with 24 goals in 27 appearances but hasn’t played since his leg fracture against Weymouth back in February

Akwasi Asante is their second top scorer with 6 goals in 19 appearances.

They have a couple of former players in their squad with Jeff King and Tom Denton plying their trade with them.

The points were shared at the Technique Stadium back in December. Matt Warburton put the Shaymen ahead but Jack Clarke’s late equaliser denied Town all three points.
