FC Halifax Town travel to National League leaders Leyton Orient this weekend. Here we show the form of the two teams in their last five games.
The Shaymen lost their last game out at the MBI Shay Stadium against Maidenhead after a penalty scored on the 72nd minute by Ayo Obileye being the only goal to settle the two teams. In the game beforehand, FC Halifax Town were held at stalemate in a 0-0 draw against Ebbsfleet. In one of the games of the season for the Shaymen they strolled past National League contenders Solihull Moors 2-0 after goals from Manny Duku and Devante Rodney. Before the three home games, FC Halifax Town faced tough trips to Dover and Barnet, coming away with one point out of six after a 1-1 draw to Barnet and a 2-1 loss to Dover.
