FC Halifax Town face tough opposition in Salford City who sit 3rd in the Vanarama National League. The reverse saw Salford come out 2-1 winners with Adam Rooney getting both goals either side of Matty Kosylo’s goal.

Maidstone United make the short trip to league leaders Leyton Orient as they look to pull themselves out of the relegation zone. Leyton will be hoping to hold onto top spot with Solihull Moors level on points.

Meanwhile, Solihull will be looking to take three points against AFC Fylde. With Solihull unbeaten in their last four, they will be hoping to get revenge on the 3-1 loss from earlier this season. With Fylde in 4th and Solihull 2nd this is an important game in the title race.

A local clash between Ebbsfleet United and Sutton United should make good entertainment with two points separating the two sides and with both in good form. Sutton have three wins in their last five whilst Ebbsfleet are unbeaten in their last five.

Braintree Town can climb off bottom spot as they face Hartlepool United. Braintree Town could move off bottom with a win, if Maidstone lose. Meanwhile Hartlepool will be looking to pile on the misery as they could move as high as 13th.

Maidenhead will be hoping to stay out of the relegation zone as they travel to Wrexham. Maidenhead are just two points clear, but should they lose and Chesterfield win, then they will enter the bottom four. Wrexham are 5th place and a win will keep them in good contention to potentially win the league.

Other games: Barnet vs Harrogate Town (postponed), Bromley vs Eastleigh, Chesterfield vs Barrow, Dagenham & Redbridge vs Aldershot Town, Gateshead vs Boreham Wood, Havant & Waterlooville vs Dover Athletic
