FC Halifax Town host promotion hopefuls Tranmere Rovers this weekend, with both teams coming off runs of good performances.

Town come out of a busy period of 4 games in 7 days, which included games against Sutton and Boreham Wood, who stood 2nd and 3rd respectively in the league, taking 6 points from them games, and another in a well fought draw against Gateshead. A loss away to Torquay in their last outing was only Jamie Fullerton’s second loss in charge after taking over at The Shay.

Tranmere head into the game having won each of their last five games, with dominant victories over Aldershot Town, Gateshead, Chester and Eastleigh. In their last game, Andy Cook was on target to beat Dover Athletic down at the Crabble.

A win for Rovers would keep them at least five points ahead of Aldershot Town, giving Tranmere an excellent chance to finish in 2nd place in The Vanarama National League, and giving them home advantage in the play-offs.

Town will look to bounce back from defeat at Torquay United last weekend and get back to winning ways under Jamie Fullarton, with their last home game of the season.
