FC Halifax Town travel to Barrow AFC this weekend in the Vanarama National League. The reverse fixture saw the Shaymen run out 2-0 winners with goals from Dayle Southwell and Matty Brown. Barrow will be looking to get their first win of 2019 after a draw and a loss.

AFC Fylde face tough opposition in Wrexham as both teams look to confirm playoff places. Both teams have two wins in their last five games with just three points and one position separating the two sides. Wrexham will be looking to continue putting pressure on league leaders Leyton Orient in the hope of automatic promotion.

A relegation six-pointer between Aldershot and Chesterfield could see either team climb out of the bottom four should results go their way. New manager John Sheridan will hope to get Chesterfield firing in the league after beating Bedford Town in the FA Trophy.

Salford City take on Gateshead as they look to take pole position. Salford are two points of top whilst Gateshead will be hoping to climb back into the playoffs. Gateshead haven’t won in three games so will be hoping to turn things around against the promotion favourites.

Bromley travel to Dover Athletic as they look to continue their good form. Both sides are unbeaten in their last four with Bromley winning all four. Dover will be hoping to continue their push up the table after a poor start to the season that saw them bottom for a large period.

Dagenham & Redbridge will be hoping to capitalise on Maidstone’s poor form as they climb back up the table. Maidstone are continuing their search for their third manager of the season. Jay Saunders and Harry Wheeler have both failed to turn things around in Kent as the club looks in danger of relegation.

Other games: Boreham Wood vs Havant & Waterlooville, Braintree Town vs Barnet, Eastleigh vs Sutton United, Ebbsfleet United vs Leyton Orient, Harrogate Town vs Hartlepool United, and Maidenhead vs Solihull Moors.
