FC Halifax Town will travel to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off.Β 

The Shaymen go into the game on the back of a three match winning run with victories over Dorking Wanderers, Solihull Moors and Maidenhead United.

Town’s midweek game against league leaders Chesterfield was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Chris Millington’s side will be looking for an 8th league away win of the season having picked up victories at Oldham, Rochdale, Ebbsfleet, Woking, Gateshead, Altrincham and Dorking so far this season.

Dagenham are in 11th place, two places below the Shaymen but 8 points worse off.

They have won 6, drawn none and lost 11 at home this season which is the most defeats of any side in the National League on their home ground.

Last time out they drew 2-2 away at Bromley and their last home game saw a 7-1 victory over Oxford City. They have picked up 12 points in the last 24 on offer and have scored in their last 6 games but haven’t kept a clean sheet in the last 14.

Their top scorer is Inih Effiong with 14 goals in 23 appearances, whilst Josh Rees has 10 in 34 games.

The two sides drew 0-0 at the Shay back in September.
