FC Halifax Town will be looking to continue their run of form under new boss Jamie Fullarton as they take on Guiseley at the weekend.

The Shaymen go into this game following a superb comeback against Dagenham and Redbridge on Tuesday night, with Mike Fondop-Talom grabbing with winner for his first Town goal.

Halifax are now unbeaten in their last four games, picking up ten points from a possible twelve with impressive wins over Woking and the aforementioned Dagenham.

Guiseley, on the other hand, have been struggling for form all season and recently is no different.

The Lions remain rooted to the bottom of the table and have only managed to pick up one win in their last eight fixtures, albeit a rather impressive 1-0 victory over heavy hitters AFC Fylde.

Halifax’s away form as of late has also been fairly solid, with one win, two draws and a defeat in their last four, including a much needed 1-1 draw against then table toppers Wrexham.

Let’s take a look at some more pre-match stats ahead of this fixture:

  1. Guiseley have conceded a goal in 76% of their home games in the National League this season.
  2. Additionally, The Lions have failed to score themselves in nearly half of their games at Nethermoor Park. (47%)
  3. There is a staggering 20 point difference between the two sides going into this game, with Halifax currently sitting on 45 points compared to Guiseley’s 25.
  4. Guiseley currently sit 22nd in the home form table, with 16 points from 17 home games.

  6. Guiseley have only kept clean sheets in 24% of their home games this season.
  7. The Shaymen, on the other hand, keep clean sheets in almost double the amount of games away from home, with Town not conceding in 47% of games on the road.
  8. Guiseley have the worst defensive record in the league, conceding 68 goals in their 36 National League games. Halifax, however, boast a substantially better defensive statistic, with just 48 conceded.
