FC Halifax Town will be looking to return to winning ways with a trip to 2nd placed Notts County on Saturday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off.

The Shaymen dropped to 16th in the table following the midweek defeat at home to Scunthorpe United in front of the BT Sport cameras and will be looking to bounce back at the promotion chasing Magpies.

The 1-0 defeat to the Iron brought an end to a 7 game unbeaten run at the Shay but points away from home have been harder to come by. The last win was a 1-0 victory at Solihull back in November and have seen a draw at Bromley, defeats at Yeovil, Altrincham and Torquay since.

County are three points behind leaders Wrexham and are unbeaten on home soil with 9 wins and 4 draws so far this season scoring 27 goals and have conceded the least at home with just 6 scored against them

Last time out they beat Boreham Wood 1-1 at home last weekend and they haven’t lost in the league since the 17th September when Dorking beat them at home 3-1

Their top goalscorers are Macaulay Langstaff with 23 goals from 26 appearances and Cedwyn Scott has 13 in 26 games.

The two sides met at the Shay back in August where Notts County won 4-1
