FC Halifax Town return to the MBI Shay stadium this weekend as they face a visit from a tricky Ebbsfleet United side.

Earlier in the season, Town were beaten 2-0 away from home as substitute Sean Shields bagged a brace to secure the full three-points for the newly promoted Kent outfit.

This weekend’s danger man could prove to be winger, Luke Coulson. Last time out, Coulson scored the only goal in their match against Solihull Moors which put an end to a torrid run of form.

Coulson was tipped for big things as he climbed through the ranks in the Manchester City Academy setup. The Englishman spent 10 years in the City ranks before making a brief move overseas in 2012 where he enrolled at Michigan University and played for the Michigan Wolverines.

He moved back to his homeland after just one month and has stuck with the English Leagues ever since, playing for the likes of Cardiff City, Eastleigh and Barnet.

This season, Coulson has been an important player for United and has played a big part in helping them to their current position of 10th in the National League. To this point he’s managed to get on the score sheet five times in the league and his side have not been beaten when he has found the net.

Town will be confident after their impressive defensive performance last time out against Wrexham, but they must keep focused if they are to thwart the winger’s considerable threat.
