With FC Halifax Town out of action this Tuesday, we look at the other fixtures taking place between teams in The Vanarama National League.

Aldershot Town v Gateshead

Promotion hopefuls Aldershot Town will look to bounce back when they host Gateshead on Tuesday. They have fallen to 6th in the league after winning just 2 games in their last 5 and face a Gateshead side that have proved hard to beat all season.

Bromley v Dagenham & Redbridge

Both Bromley and Dagenham & Redbridge will look to push themselves up the league when they face each other. The teams sit in 10th and 11th with just 1 point separating the two, after they both came out victorious at the weekend.

Dover Athletic v Tranmere Rovers

Promotion challengers Dover and Tranmere will both be hoping to take all 3 points home when they face each other. Tranmere currently sit 2nd in the Vanarama National League, after a run of 4 straight wins. Dover sit in 8th, one place outside the play-off places, with a game in hand on Wrexham. A win would push them ahead of The Dragons with two games to play.

Eastleigh v Ebbsfleet United

After earning 10 points from a possible 12 in recent weeks, Ebbsfleet United will look to put the pressure their fellow play-off challengers with a win against Eastleigh. Eastleigh will look to get back to winning ways after losing their past two games, falling to 16th in the league.

Guiseley v Barrow

All but relegated Guiseley will look to give themselves a glimmer of hope when they take on Barrow. Barrow also find themselves in the relegation zone, 1 point behind Woking and with two games in hand. After winning just 1 of their last 5, they will look to doom Guiseley to relegation, and thrust themselves out of the relegation zone, and a step closer to safety.

Hartlepool United v Leyton Orient

Hosts Hartlepool United must win against mid-table Leyton Orient to maintain their 5-point gap to the relegation zone, with Barrow having 2 games in hand. It will be a tough game however, as Leyton Orient are undefeated in their last 5 games, winning 3.

Maidenhead United v Sutton United

Third place Sutton visit the Gallagher Stadium, looking to take a step closer to securing automatic promotion. Maidenhead United are coming off two straight wins, and will hope their season doesn’t fizzle out, with promotion and relegation looking unlikely.
