FC Halifax Town are back in action on Saturday with the visit of league leaders Sutton United to the Shay, 3pm kick-off.

Town have won the last two home games against Aldershot Town and Solihull Moors and will be looking to make it a hattrick of wins on home soil against the Us.

Town are on a run of five wins from the last seven games and are 8th in the table going into this latest match

Sutton beat Bromley 3-1 away from home in midweek thanks to goals from an own goal from Mark Cousings, a Harry Beautyman Penalty and Isaac Olaofe.

Our visitors have lost just one game in their last 15 league matches which was against Hartlepool on the 30th January and have scored in their last five. Their away form is impressive with five wins in their last five outings.

The two sides met earlier in the season in a game which was originally scheduled for the Shay but was switched to Gander Green Lane due to the weather conditions in Halifax. Sutton won the game 1-0 thanks to a Beautyman penalty and Nathan Clarke got injured in the game, only returning in the match against Easleigh last weekend.

Beautyman and Olaofe who both scored in midweek have 11 and 10 goals respectively this season.
