FC Halifax Town will entertain York City at the Shay on Easter Monday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off.

The Shaymen go into the game in 8th place following a 1-0 defeat at Hartlepool United on Good Friday. Former Town striker Mani Dieseruvwe scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.

Town have won 7 and lost 2 of the last 9 games and will be looking to return to winning ways in this West vs North Yorkshire derby.

Chris Millington’s side have won 8 times on home soil, last time out at the Shay his side won 4-2 at home to Chesterfield to delay the Spireites winning the title.

York have climbed to 16th in the table and have won their last three games. They beat Chesterfield 2-1 at home at the weekend, have won 2-0 away at Bromley and beat Aldershot 1-0 at the LNER Stadium.

Those results brought an end to a run of eight games without victory

Dipo Akinyemi is their top scorer with 13 goals in 36 games.

The points were shared in the return fixture. Florent Hoti put the Shaymen ahead but were denied all three points with an injury time equaliser from Patrick McLaughlin in front of the TNT Sport cameras.

There will be free easter eggs & squash for all children between 12-2pm in the East Stand Supporters Bar as well as FREE scarves for all Under 18s from 1pm in Main reception.
