There are five games in the Vanarama National on Tuesday night with games which may see FC Halifax Town drop down the table.

Town are 17th in the table before the games take place and with the Shaymen not in action until next weekend away at Woking, all eyes will be on the other games.

Maidstone United will have the chance to go above Town but they have the league leaders Macclesfield Town who have the best away record in the league with 11 wins to date. The home side have only three home wins this season and haven’t won at home in the last 8 games in a run of form which has seen only 3 points gained in the last 30 points on offer.

Barrow also have the chance to go ahead of the Shaymen on goal difference if they can beat Guiseley at Nethermoor.

The Cumbrians won on their last game on the road with a 1-0 win over Maidstone United and will be hoping to make it back to back wins.

Guiseley beat AFC Fylde at home in their last home game but they only have one win in 11 so will be hoping to start to improve their recent form.

Hartlepool are the other team who can go back above the Shaymen and they are at home to Aldershot Town.

The home side have won just once in the last 13 games and they face the Shots who have won four and drawn one of the last five games away from the Recreation Ground.

Chester entertain Dover at the Swansway Stadium and will be hoping to improve with their 1 win in their last 8 games

Dover have lost their last two away games with a 3-1 defeat at AFC Fylde and 3-2 defeat at Solihull and with a late 1-0 win over Leyton Orient on Saturday at the Crabble and a move back into the play-off positions, they will be hoping to continue on their winning ways.

In the final game, Sutton United will face a home game against Woking, who will be facing the Shaymen next weekend.

Woking haven’t won away in their last 10 games whilst Sutton have just one loss in their last 10 games scoring in each of their last 8 games.

Full fixtures for Tuesday:

Aldershot Town vs Hartlepool, Chester vs Dover Athletic, Guiseley vs Barrow, Maidstone United vs Macclesfield, Sutton United vs Woking
