FC Halifax Town will make the long trip to Eastleigh on Bank Holiday Monday, 3pm kick-off in the Vanarama National League.

The Shaymen secured a play-off place with a 1-0 home win over Yeovil Town at the weekend which was our 17th league home win of the season and got to 80 points.

Town lost 1-0 away at Southend United last time on the road thanks to Kenny Clark’s first half strike which makes it four away games without a win.

Eastleigh drew 3-3 away at King’s Lynn Town at the weekend and it was a 90 + 11 minute penalty from Michael Kelly that helped the Spitfires to a point.

They are 19th in the table and have won 8, drawn 5 and lost 7 on home soil this season.

The Spitfires lost 3-2 at home to Barnet last weekend and haven’t won since the 2nd April with a 2-0 win at Aldershot

It was 4-0 at home with two goals from Jordan Slew, Jamie Allen and Matty Warburton helped the Shaymen earlier in the season.

Danny Whitehall is their top goalscorer with 10 goals from 37 appearances.
