FC Halifax Town will make the long trip to the South Coast tomorrow to take on Dover Athletic at the Crabble Stadium in front of the BT Sport cameras.

It will be 5th vs 2nd in the table as the two sides meet for the first time this season

The Shaymen were defeated in midweek against local neighbours Harrogate Town but go into the game looking for our 4th away win on the road following wins at Ebbsfleet United, Barrow and Chesterfield so far this season.

Dover go into the game three places in the table below Pete Wild’s side and have their away form to thank for their play-off position to date.

Six wins from seven away from the Crabble is impressive form but have only won 1 at home so far along with two draws from their opening 6 on home soil so far

Dover have won their last two games which have both been away at Maidenhead United and Hartlepool United and they will be looking to make it a hattrick of wins against the Shaymen tomorrow.
