FC Halifax Town will host bottom of the table Dover Athletic at the Shay on Saturday, 3pm kick-off.

The Shaymen are 4th in the table with 10 wins from 13 games on home soil this season and will be looking to inflict a 26th league defeat of the season on Dover.

Town are unbeaten in four games which has seen three wins and a draw in that time scoring 7 and conceding just twice including two clean sheets in the last two games.

Its now 27 points from the last 39 on offer and sees the Club five points above 8th placed Grimsby with two games in hand over the majority of sides around them apart from 5th place Boreham Wood who have 1 game in hand.

Dover have won just once this season which was against Eastleigh at home and have picked up just three draws from 16 games on the road.

They were deducted 12 points at the start of the season and are now 22 points behind 22nd placed King’s Lynn Town after 31 games.

Aaron Cosgrave and Alfie Pavey are their top scorers with four goals from 19 and 15 games respectively.

The two sides met at the Crabble back in November and it was the Shaymen who came out on top. Billy Waters put Town ahead but Ben Williamson equalised but goals in the last 10 minutes from Kieran Green and a second from Waters ensured all three points.
