FC Halifax Town return to action again on Saturday with the trip to the West Midlands to take on Solihull Moors.

The Shaymen have so far failed to win any of the opening four games of the season and suffered a 2-1 injury time winner in Tuesday night’s home defeat to third placed Dover Athletic.

Solihull have so far played a game less following their postponement of their first match of the season against Chester and are three places below Town in the Vanarama National League table.

They lost 3-1 away at Leyton Orient and followed up by a 4–1 defeat at Boreham Wood last weekend.

Liam McDonald’s side moved off the bottom of the table with a 3-3 draw against 10 man Barrow at Damson Park in midweek, they will be looking to build on that against the Shaymen this weekend.
