FC Halifax Town will host Yeovil Town at the Shay on Saturday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off. 

The Shaymen just have four games left of the league season and sit in third position knowing if they finish in the top two play-off places, just one home game would be needed to have a chance to reach this season’s Promotion Final at the London Stadium.

Town go into the game on the back of seven wins and a draw on home soil, the only points dropped against 4th placed Solihull Moors in a 0-0 draw back on the 5th April.

On the road, The Shaymen lost 1-0 away at Southend last weekend, the first defeat after five games without loss and Town will be looking to continue their fine home form.

Yoevil sit 13th in the table, 21 points behind the SHaymen. They have won 7, drawn 7 and lost 6 away from Huish Park this season.

They beat league leaders Stockport County at home last weekend 2-1 with County down to 10 men following Will Collar’s red card.

Yeovil are unbeaten from home in their last five games with a point gained against Weymouth, King’s Lynn Town, Barnet and Notts County whilst they also beat bottom of the league beat Dover 2-0.

Their top scorer is Tom Knowles with 8 goals in 38 games for the Glovers this season

The two sides met at Huish Park back in September, the only goal was for the home side as Joe Quigley’s penalty was the difference in front of the BT Sport cameras.

On Monday, the games keep on coming with the long trip to Eastleigh, 3pm kick-off.
