This Tuesday will see FC Halifax Town looking to get back to winning ways as they travel down to the midlands to face Solihull Moors at Damson Park for match under the lights.
The Shaymen’s opponents have started the season in fine form sitting in fourth position on 34 points, having won 11 of their 17 games which is the highest amount in the league at this stage. A win for Solihull could potentially put them top of the pile for the first time this season. The Moors come into this game with four wins out of five in the league, only losing to Barnet 2-0. They have also qualified for the FA Cup first round proper when they beat Witton Albion 0-2.
Solihull’s last fixture was away at Maidstone United winning 3-1. Goals from their joint top scorers Danny Wright and Adi Yussuf in the first eight minutes along with Jermaine Hylton rounded of a solid performance by The Moors.
The Moors have been on a good run since the middle of December winning seven out of eight in all competitions. This run began with a convincing 2-0 away to basement side Dover. Their most notable performance in this run of form was a 5-0 pommelling of Bromley. In which The Moors were 4-0 up half time and striker Wright had already scored his hat-trick.
The Shaymen go into the game still looking for their first victory in the league since the 1-0 victory over Gateshead at the end of August, during this time The Shaymen have slipped to 14th in the league. A win this Tuesday against Solihull will lift Town up one place into thirteenth if Barrow fail to take three points in their game.
Town come into the game with two losses out of five in the league.
Last time out The Shaymen lost at home to Eastleigh 1-0 in a tightly fought game. Draws against Chesterfield, Bromley and AFC Fylde show Fullarton’s side are hard to break down.
The game this Tuesday is down at Damson Park if you are unable to make it you can listen to live audio from 7:30pm on Shaymen TV.
