FC Halifax Town welcome Gateshead to the MBi Shay Stadium on Bank Holiday Monday. Gateshead sit two places behind the Shaymen in 6th place. They got off to a great start winning their first games, but they now haven’t won in their last three games.

They started off the season with a 3-1 away win at Maidenhead. They doubled their points tally to six after beating National League favourites Salford City 2-1.

Gateshead continued their form by beating Dover 2-1 at home. The form started to dip in the next three games by drawing 1-1 away to Boreham Wood. Their first loss came to Bromley 1-0 away conceding late on in the game. In the last game, they had to settle for a draw at home to Leyton Orient.

Halifax have won 4 of their games so far this season, with Gateshead only winning 3 out of 6.

Solihull Moors vs Wrexham

Wrexham sit top of the table two points clear of second place while Solihull Moors are in 10th place.

Wrexham finished 10th place last season while Solihull Moors escaped relegation and finished in 18th place

Wrexham let a two-goal lead slip on the weekend to draw 2-2 to Bromley conceding in the 91st minute.

While Solihull Moors lost 3-1 away to Harrogate Town.

Wrexham look to continue their unbeaten run in the National League while Solihull Moors are still unbeaten at home this season.

It’s going to be a real tough test for Wrexham and clubs may have the chance to get on top of the league if they slip up.

AFC Fylde vs Harrogate Town

This game is lining up to be very interesting. AFC Fylde sit in 2nd place while Harrogate are just behind in 3rd.

The game will be broadcasted live on BT sport at 5:15pm.

Both teams sit on 12 points after both winning 3 and drawing 3 games and being unbeaten so far this season.

AFC Fylde have won their first 3 games at home this season beating Bromley 2-1, Solihull 3-1 and Dover 4-0

Harrogate have started the season fantastically being unbeaten after six games in their first ever season in the National League.

Harrogate drawn their first three games and are now going into this game with a 3-game win streak.

Salford City vs Barrow

National League favourites Salford City haven’t started the season as expected as they’re currently in 14th place in the table.

Barrow currently sit just outside of play offs in 8th place.

Salford are unbeaten in their last three games in the league. Salford are also unbeaten in their first three home games.

Barrow haven’t won an away game in their first six games.
