FC Halifax Town host Worcester City at the MBi Shay Stadium on Saturday as they look to make it three games unbeaten and grab their first home victory of the season. Kick-off is 3pm.

Current Form:

The Shaymen currently sit third in the table after a hard-fought draw against fellow relegated side Altrincham. Tom Denton has hit the ground running for the Shaymen scoring four goals in the opening two matches so far.

Lee Hughes, who needs no introduction, poses a real threat in front of goal for Worcester City. The well-travelled striker has been scoring goals for fun around the country since the turn of the century. Hughes already has two goals to his name this season after bagging a double on the opening day and will be looking for his third in as many games.

Last Meeting:

The last meeting between the two sides came in the FA Trophy second round two years ago on Christmas eve, with The Shaymen progressing to the second round thanks to a Scott Boden goal.

Referee: Steven Copeland

Assistant Referee: Daniel Hitchell
