The Shaymen will make the short trip to Salford to face the newly promoted side. The side backed by a few of the class of 92, haven’t registered a win after their first three games.

Jamie Fullarton and his side have started the season extremely well with everyone around the club excited at what could happen this season.

With the side recently going full time the change, and the shift in the squad has bought positivity and results to the West of Yorkshire and the MBi Shay Stadium.

Halifax aren’t the only side to have a flawless record in the National League however. Chesterfield, Solihull Moors and Gateshead are yet to lose a game.

After Salford just missed out on promotion the season Halifax came up in 2017, the home side on Tuesday will be looking for revenge after it was Halifax who beat them in the playoff semi-final that year.

Salford, who currently site 21st in the National League table, lost on Saturday to 10 man Sutton United. Carl Piergianni gave his side the lead in the first half, only for Sutton to come back and win the game.
