FC Halifax Town will travel to Oxford City on Sunday lunchtime in front of the TNT Sports cameras in the Vanarama National League, 12.15pm kick-off.

The Shaymen will go into the weekend in 9th place two points outside the play-offs and go into the game on the back of five wins from the last six league games.

Town won 2-1 at home to Boreham Wood last weekend and then saw their midweek game against Oldham Athletic postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Chris Millington’s side lost 2-0 away at 2nd placed Bromley last time away from home and beat Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 previously.

Our hosts sit bottom of the table with just 29 points from their 39 games so far this campaign and are 14 points behind 20th placed Wealdstone.

They have only won 5, drawn 3 and lost 11 games on home soil and have a goal difference of -33.

Oxford lost 2-0 away at Chesterfield in midweek and drew 2-2 at Rochdale last weekend. The point at Dale brought to an end of a run of three defeats.

Their last win was a 1-0 victory over Ebbsfleet at home on the 27th January which is their only win in 2024.

Josh Parker leads their top goalscoring chart with 12 goals in 35 games with 4 coming from the penalty spot.

The two sides drew 1-1 at the Shay earlier in the season. Rob Harker put the Shaymen ahead but Oxford earnt a point through Pierre Fonkeu’s second half goal.
