FC Halifax Town make the long trip south this weekend to take on Dover Athletic in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon.

The Shaymen will be looking to win for the first time on the road after four games without victory away from home.

Town go into the game 6th in the table and have lost just once in the last 13 games.

It’s been three weeks since our last league game with a 7-4 home victory in the Emirates FA Cup over Maidenhead United and a free weekend in the build up to this game.

Billy Waters scored twice against Maidenhead in our last game, his first goals since the Notts County win on the 5th November. He has 10 goals in 17 games.

Dover sit bottom of the table and have not won any league game this season either home or away. They have picked up just three points all season and sit on -9 following their points deduction at the start of the campaign.

Two of the draws have been on home soil against Solihull Moors and Chesterfield.

The Kent side have scored just 10 goals this season and conceded 33 to date. Aaron Cosgrave has four and Koby Arthur has three goals.
