FC Halifax Town take on Liversedge in what could be the start of a memorable cup run if they come away with a victory.

Halifax welcome Liversedge to the Wyke Sports Village tomorrow at 2pm in Round 2 of the Alliance League Cup.

The young Shaymen go into this game full of confidence after a win against 2018/19 cup winners South Shields in the first round of the competition.

Town defeated South Shields of National League Regional Division I in Round 1 and came away with a 1-0 win in a tough away fixture.

Liversedge are just 2 points below Halifax Town in Division ‘H’ of the National League U19s Alliance, and both teams are without a win so far this season.

With both teams struggling for a victory in the League, this cup game could promise a feisty affair as both are desperate for a win.

The two teams previously met on the 4th October, a game resulting in a 4-4 draw, as neither team could pry open the other side find a winner.

One thing we are promised in this exciting fixture is goals. Neither side have failed to score in all 7 games they have played this season.

A win for either side will see them progress into Round 3 of the competition, which will be played on Wednesday 13th December.

Their last league fixture saw Town fall to Chorley in a 7-3 defeat at home, however there were plenty of positives to take going into their cup fixture. Once again, Favour Gold got on the score-sheet continuing his unstoppable form this season.

As well as this, Oliver Jackson and Luke Brooks found the back of the net which will give them needed boosts going into the Liversedge game.

The young Shaymen will look to take their fine scoring form going into the cup game, and will hope to sure up their back line to go through to the next round.

With the league results not going their way so far this season, Town could use a cup run to give them confidence in all competitions this season.

FC Halifax Town were originally supposed to play AFC Fylde tomorrow however the game has been cancelled as their FA Youth Cup fixture is taking place instead. The game against Fylde will be announced at a later date.
