FC Halifax Town will face Wrexham in the final home game of the season in the Vanarama National League on Easter Monday.

Earlier in the season, in a mid-week European night under the floodlights, The Shaymen came away from North Wales with a point despite having a goal ruled out. Jamie Fullarton’s men will be looking to put on a show in the final game of the season here at the MBi Shay Stadium. It should be an entertaining match as Wrexham still have it all to play for to secure as high a position as possible in the playoffs.

There are some tasty clashes at the top of the National League with league leaders Leyton Orient travelling to 3rd placed Solihull Moors and 2nd placed Salford City taking on 5th placed AFC Fylde. With just three points separating the top three, every point matter as the champions of the National League could be crowned on Monday.

Harrogate Town will welcome Gateshead to the CNG Stadium with Harrogate looking to secure their place in the playoffs. It was a five-goal thriller the last time these two sides met with the Yorkshire side scoring an 85th winner. Harrogate haven’t found it difficult to score goals this season as they are currently the National League’s highest scoring side so there surely promises to be plenty of goals in this one.

Eastleigh can also secure their place in the playoffs with a win against Maidenhead United. However, Ebbsfleet United will be trying to keep the pressure on The Spitfires when they take on Dover Athletic at the Kuflink Stadium.

Sutton United are still not out of the playoff picture but they must beat already relegated Maidstone United if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.

At the bottom of the league, already relegated sides Aldershot Town and Havant & Waterlooville face off against each other and Braintree Town travel to Dagenham & Redbridge. The Daggers have brushed off their early season struggles to cement their place in the National League for another season but they’re a long way off from returning to the Football League.

Elsewhere in the National League, Barrow AFC take on Hartlepool United, Chesterfield welcome Boreham Wood to the Proact Stadium and Barnet travel to Bromley in a London derby.
