FC Halifax Town will host Solihull Moors at the Shay on Saturday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off.

The Shaymen go into the game in 9th place in the table having lost 1-0 away at Aldershot Town last weekend with a very late injury time goal for the home side giving the Shots all three points.

Town drew 2-2 at home to AFC Fylde last time at the Shay and were denied all three points with a second half injury time equaliser to stop a fifth league home win of the season.

Chris Millington’s side now have 1 win in the last five league games which was a 1-0 victory over Wealdstone at the Shay and will be looking to return to winning ways against 4th placed Solihull.

The Moors have picked up 6 wins away from home this season and are five points ahead of the Shaymen in the table but are on a run of three games of defeats

Altrincham knocked 6 past tem last weekend at Moss Lane and they lost their two previous home games against Gateshead & Maidenhead.

They have picked up wins at Dagenham, Hartlepool, Kidderminster, Oldham, Boreham Wood and Ebbsfleet United so far this campaign.

Their top scorer is Josh Kelly with 10 goals in 20 league games.

Matt Warburton and Jay Benn are no strangers to the Shay having both played here for Town and will now line up for Solihull against their former employers this weekend.

Last season Town drew 1-1 at home and won 1-0 at home and this season the two sides have already met and the points were shared with Josh Kelly and Jo Cummings on target.
