Jamie Fullarton had made his debut as manager of FC Halifax Town over the weekend against Eastleigh where the game ended 0-0 and the Shaymen came home with just the one point. Now they will have this week to prepare for their home tie against Sutton United at the MBi Shay Stadium.

Over the weekend, the visitors clinched the runners up position with a comfortable 4-0 win against Guiseley. Terell Thomas, Byron Harrison and Craig Edmond got themselves on the scoresheet after 60 minutes before Guiseley’s very own Luke Coddington added the fourth with an own goal.

The Lions, who continue to sit at the bottom of the table, will return to Nethermoor Park where they will host Dagenham & Redbridge. The Daggers will be coming away from a tough 3-2 win to Chester, the game was due to end as a 2-2 draw before Chester’s Andy Halls’ own goal  added to Fejiri Okenabirhie’s brace to seal win for the hosts.

Chester will look to bounce back when they host Bromley, another loss will keep them planted in the relegation zone. However, the visitors Bromley will definitely be looking for the three points if they are to climb above Dover in ninth place.

Dover unfortunately lost to Fylde over the weekend, Mitchell Pinnock had the Whites ahead in the 57th minute before Fylde score three times in the last 20 minutes to seal the three points, and they will now host Leyton Orient this weekend hoping to maintain their league position. Fylde will be in high spirits when they travel to second-from-bottom Torquay United.

In other news, Boreham and Macclesfield will be on BT Sport this weekend at lunchtime. Due to the weather conditions on Tuesday night, Boreham weren’t able to play Maidenhead United, so the hosts will have a few more days to prepare for their home tie against the current league leaders who have a five point lead.

Maidenhead will host Woking after being defeated by Macclesfield 1-0 over the weekend from Scott Wilson’s goal in the last minute. However, Woking grabbed a point over the weekend against Boreham Wood, leaving them four points behind their latest opponents.

The rest of the games this weekend will be:

  • Aldershot v Hartlepool
  • Tranmere v Gateshead
  • Ebbsfleet v Wrexham
  • Solihull v Maidstone
