The Shaymen are 4th in the table after 26 games with 50 points on the board whilst Dover are bottom of the table and on -5 following a -12 points deduction at the start of the season.

Town lost 2-1 at home to Notts County in the FA Trophy Fifth Round last weekend but beat Dagenham away in our last league game 3-1 thanks to goals from Matty Warburton and two from Billy Waters

The last win on home soil was the 1-0 victory over Grimsby on the 11th January with a Warburton second half penalty.

Dover have won jut one game all season which was a 1-0 home victory over Eastleigh on the 25th January and have picked up just two points on the road with draws at Weymouth and Yeovil Town this season

They have lost three on the bounce and 10 of the last 11 games failing to score in their last two away games at Stockport and Solihull

Two goals from Billy Waters and one from Kieran Green helped the Shaymen to three points away at Dover back in November when Town won 3-1 at the Crabble

Aaron Cosgrave and Alfie Pavey have both scored 4 goals this season in 19 and 12 games respectively.
