After an impressive 2-0 win against Hartlepool United and the announcement of the new gaffer Jamie Allerton. Halifax will pop down to Southampton this weekend to face Eastleigh, where Allerton will manage his first game as the new boss.

Hartlepool will return to Victoria Park where they will host Ebbsfleet United, the visitor’s top goal scorer this season, Danny Kedwell, won his side the game with a brace against Woking.

Woking however will host Boreham Wood, where the three points are vital for both campaigns.

Maidstone will host Tranmere Rovers at the Gallagher Stadium. Both teams had lost their midweek fixtures and will hope to make up for it on Saturday.

The league leaders Macclesfield were the victors of their encounter with Tranmere, who were hoping to reduce the four-point deficit.

Macclesfield will be returning to Moss Rose this weekend where they’ll host Maidenhead United, who had also won their midweek fixture at home to Eastleigh. They currently have a five-point lead over the current runner ups, Sutton United.

As the current runners up, it is up to Sutton to keep pressuring the league leaders. This weekend, they will have home advantage against Guiseley. The visitors who are sitting at the bottom of the league grinded out a 1-0 result against Fylde after John Rooney’s late goal at Nethermoor Park, they will be feeling confident going into the game this weekend.

Fylde will be looking to recover from their defeat to Guiseley when they host Dover Athletic this weekend. The visitors had Mitch Pinnock to thank for the three points they got in their midweek fixture against Dagenham & Redbridge, a stunning overhead kick in the 26th minute helped Pinnock’s side grab well-needed three points if they are to continue fighting for the play-offs.

And finally, Dagenham & Redbridge will host Chester. Both sides are sitting in the bottom half of the table which means the maximum three points is vital if they wish to stay in the Vanarama National League.
