FC Halifax Town: Eastleigh preview

FC Halifax Town v Aldershot

FC Halifax Town can move out of the relegation zone if they beat promotion contenders Eastleigh at the Shay on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

Town dropped back into the bottom four on Saturday as they lost 2-0 at champions Cheltenham, while Boreham Wood won 2-1 at Aldershot,

Anything other than a Halifax win would leave safety out of their hands with only two games remaining, but The Shaymen have now lost five of their last six games.

Eastleigh are sixth in the National League and are unbeaten in their last nine games, winning six.

They have kept six clean sheets in their last eight matches, while Halifax have failed to score in their previous three outings, with their last goal, scored by Connor Hughes in the 3-2 win over Boreham Wood, coming more than four hours of football ago.

Halifax have lost three consecutive games for the first time under Jim Harvey and have only found the net in one of their last five matches.

A win for Eastleigh will lift them back into the play-off places.

James Constable is their top league scorer with 15 goals, but scored his first league goal in nine games in his last league appearance against Barrow a week ago.

Under 12s will be admitted free to the game, while adults’ prices are £15.

All those in attendance will also have a chance to win Club Wembley tickets for the FA Trophy final.
