After an unexpected break last weekend, FC Halifax Town will travel down to Kent to take on Bromley.

It was a good result for The Shaymen the last time these two teams met, as they defeated their opponents 2-1.

However, they face a tricky tie against a Bromley side who have won 3 of their last 4 matches.

Here is what else is happening in the Vanarama National League this weekend.

Macclesfield Town will want to avenge the ending of their 11-game unbeaten streak last weekend when they face Torquay United.

With the Gulls having failed to pick up 3 points since November, the league leaders will be confident of the win going into this one.

Chasing the front runners are Aldershot Town, who will travel to Brisbane Road to take on Leyton Orient.

The O’s will want to avoid a 4th game without a win, while The Shots will be looking for victory in a 3rd successive away fixture.

It’s 4th vs 5th as the race for the playoffs hots up, with Wrexham facing Tranmere Rovers.

Wrexham are back to winning ways following their blip in form over the Christmas period, with successive wins.

Rover’s charge up the table also continues following their own little wobble as they entered 2018.

Sutton United face a long journey up north, as they come up against Barrow.

The form that Aidy Pennock’s arrival brought has seemingly waned of late for the Cumbrian side, who haven’t won in 4 league games.

Meanwhile, Sutton have won their last 3 in all competitions.

The very inform AFC Fylde will be looking to extend their great run since the New Year when they face the very underperforming Woking.

Fylde have won 6 of their last 7, including an impressive 6-0 victory over the league leaders Macclesfield.

Woking meanwhile, are winless in 12 in all competitions, a run which goes all the way back to November.

Dover Athletic will be hoping to build upon their first league win since mid-December as they host Guiseley.

They face a Lions side who have lost 3 of their last 4 outings.

A mid table clash sees Ebbsfleet United welcome Boreham Wood.

The sides sit in 11th and 9th respectively, with neither winning in their last 3 outings in all competitions.

Solihull Moors fight to remain in the National League continues as they travel to Dagenham & Redbridge.

The home side haven’t been in the best form of late, with losses in their previous 2 games.

Moors on the other hand are unbeaten in their last 4 league games.

Eastleigh’s undefeated run of 6 games makes them favourites as they face struggling Hartlepool United.

Things look bleak on and off the pitch for The Pools, who are without a win in their last 10 in all competitions.

Maidenhead United host struggling Chester at York Road.

Both sides go into the encounter with a single win in their last 5 in all competitions.

And finally, Gateshead, who have not lost in their last 4, take on Maidstone United who haven’t won in the league since mid-December.

We hope those travelling down to Bromley have a safe journey this weekend.
