FC Halifax Town will travel to Dorking Wanderers on Saturday afternoon in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off.

The Shaymen will be looking to build on Tuesday night’s 5-0 win over Wealdstone at the Shay which saw Town move up to 16th in the table.

It brought an end to five games without a win in the league for Chris Millington’s side and he will be looking for a first league away win since the 1-0 victory over Oldham on the 4th February.

The victory at Boundary Park is one of three wins on the road this season with the others coming against Solihull Moors and Scunthorpe United.

Dorking are 7 points below the Shaymen in 21st place in the final relegation place. A win would put the Shaymen 10 points ahead, whilst defeat would see the gap narrow to four points with Wanderers having a game in hand.

They have lost their last two games away from home with a 1-0 defeat at Boreham Wood in midweek and lost 3-1 to promotion chasing Wrexham last weekend.

Their last home game saw a 3-2 victory over 10 man Torquay United with goals from James McShane and two from Harry Ottaway.

On home soil they have picked up 7 victories, 3 draws and 6 defeats scoring 28 and conceding 35 to date

Their top scorer is McShane with 17 goals in 32 appearances whilst Ryan Seager has 11 in 33 games.

Goals from Jamie Cooke, Kian Spence and Tylor Golden before Seagar’s late goal helped the Shaymen to a 3-1 victory at the Shay back in December.
