FC Halifax Town compiled misery onto Chesterfield on Tuesday night beating them 3-2 in a thrilling match to return Pete Wild and his team back to the top of the National League making it 7 wins from 9. On Saturday The Shaymen host newly relegated Yeovil Town who sit in 9th and are climbing the table after back to back wins shone some light on a poor start to the season.

The BT sport televised and late kick off comes at joint top of the table are Woking who face a 548-mile round trip as they face 8th placed Hartlepool who will come in the match confident of getting a result after 3 successive wins.

Chesterfield recently defeated by our own Halifax will continue to look for their first win of the season when they host another team in top form in the shape of Bromley who will be continuing their hunt of place in the top 2 as they currently sit in 3rd.

Another team looking to make a break away from the pack are Maidenhead United who host an unpredictable and inconsistent Dagenham & Redbridge who currently lay in midtable.

The third team in the table with three wins on the bounce is Stockport who will look to apply even more pressure onto newly promoted Chorley who sit at the bottom of the table with zero wins to their name.

6th placed Dover make the relatively short journey to what could considered one of their local derby’s. They make the 103 mile trek up to Boreham Wood who sit one point above the relegation zone.

11th plays 12th when Torquay United host Harrogate Town in an important midtable clash which could see either side move up into a playoff position.

23rd placed Ebbsfleet United who have lost the joint highest amount of games so far this season (Six along with Barrow) host Eastleigh who are also struggling to find form of any kind in the early season but come into the game on the back of a 2-0 home win over Boreham Wood.

20th placed Aldershot town host 21st placed Barrow in a game that could already be considered a relegation fight.

Finally, Sutton United host Notts County, both teams sitting on 10 points and looking to improve especially Notts County who may still yet be hopefully of an immediate return to the football league.
