FC Halifax Town travel to Barnet this weekend looking for our first away win since the 1-0 win over Sutton back on the 29th October.

Town are unbeaten in the last two home games and will be looking to make it two wins from three games

The two sides met at the Shay back in September and Town won the game 4-2 thanks to two goals from Tobi Sho-Silva, Liam McAlinden and Liam Nolan.

In other games this weekend, league leaders Barrow entertain 23rd placed side Ebbsfleet United looking for their 9th home win of the seaason. They have only lost once in the last 18 games and currently sit a point clear at the top of the table. Meanwhile Ebbsfleet haven’t won on the road in four games with just one win in their last 9 league games. They have only won three of their games on the road, drawn five and lost six to date

Second placed Yeovil Town entertain Solihull Moors at Huish Park. They have won 2 out of their last 3 games over the festive period, whilst Tim Flowers side have just one win in ther last 4 games and are 7 points below Yeovil in the table.

Stockport return to Edgeley Park after a draw with the Shaymen on New Year’s Day and they will entertain Boreham Wood. They have four wins from their last six games which sees them in 5th place, whilst Boreham Wood are in 8th position, a win would see Wood go above them in the table.
