FC Halifax Town will travel north on Saturday to take on Gateshead in the Vanarama National League, 12.30pm kick-off.

The Shaymen will be looking for a fifth away league win of the season in the early kick-off which will be shown live on TNT Sports 2 after wins at Oldham, Rochdale, Ebbsfleet & Woking so far this season.

Town went out of the FA Trophy in midweek against Altrincham on penalties after a 0-0 draw during the 90 minutes.

The only victory for Chris Millington’s side in the last six games was a 1-0 win over Wealdstone at the Shay and Town have lost away at Aldershot and Maidenhead in the last two away games.

Gateshead are 5th in the table and are four points above the Shaymen with a game in hand over Town.

They have 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats on home soil this season and have three wins and a draw in their last four league games.

Eleven goals have been scored in those last four games including 6 against Dorking at the International Stadium.

Marcus Dinanga is their top goalscorer with 12 goals in 20 appearances whilst Stephen Wearne has 10 in 20.

The two sides drew 0-0 at the Shay back in August.
