FC Halifax Town will welcome BT Sport and Scunthorpe United to the Shay on Wednesday night in the last Vanarama National League, 7.30pm kick-off.

Town will be looking for a double over the Iron having won 2-0 in the return leg back in August as Kian Spence and Jordan Slew were on target for the Shaymen.

Chris Millington’s side go into the game in 15th position and haven’t played since the 1-0 defeat away at Torquay United on the 7th January due to postponements due to the weather.

Town have won 6 and drawn 1 of the last 7 at home and their visitors sit bottom of the table and haven’t won away from home since their relegation from the Football League. They have picked up 5 draws and 8 defeats so far. Goals are in short supply away from Glanford Park with just 11 scored to date.

Last time out they lost 2-0 at home to Woking and their last league away game saw a 4-1 defeat at Chesterfield.

They have won just once in the last 12 games.

Their top scorer is Joe Nuttall with 9 goals in 20 games.
