Now that the Great Yorkshire Freeze has concluded, FC Halifax will return this weekend to face Woking at the Kingsfield Stadium. You can catch our extended preview in the news section.

Elsewhere in the Vanarama National League, the current runners up Sutton United will host relegation candidates Solihull Moors, a win for Sutton will put them ahead of the league leaders Macclesfield.

However, the Silkmen will have a game in hand after their midweek fixture against Maidstone was postponed. They will now have a few more days to rest and prepare for their home tie against another relegation candidate Barrow.

It doesn’t look like a good weekend for the teams in the bottom half of the table as Maidstone will have Torquay United. The Gulls have a game in-hand and have the opportunity to substitute with Chester in the league positions.

Chester will feature on Sunday for a midday fixture away at promotion chasers Wrexham, the game will be televised on BT Sport. At least a point can help the Blues’ relegation survival if they are stop Torquay overtaking them.

Wrexham however, will be looking to to end their four consecutive draws, their last draw was a 2-2 draw against their promotion rivals Aldershot. On the other hand, the Shots will travel to Fylde in good form with four wins in the last six games.

If results don’t go their way, then Tranmere Rovers could replace Aldershot in league positions and go third. They will travel to Dagenham & Redbridge where the Daggers have won two out of their previous six home games so it might not be a difficult task for Tranmere.

Here are the rest of the fixtures taking place this weekend:

  • Bromley v Guiseley
  • Gateshead v Maidenhead United
  • Hartlepool v Boreham Wood
  • Leyton Orient v Ebbsfleet United
  • Eastleigh v Dover Athletic
