The Shay is one of the last places in the National League new Welling boss Dean Frost will want to take his team on Saturday (3pm).

Halifax have scored in every game under Jim Harvey, winning seven of their last 11 games.

Their last home defeat was over two months ago, while Town are unbeaten in their last seven home outings, scoring 16 goals.

Welling’s last win in the league was a 2-1 victory at home to Lincoln back in October

Welling have scored the fewest away goals in the division having netted just seven times on the road in their 12 away league matches.

Only once have they scored more than one goal in an away league game, while they have only kept one league clean sheet away from home.

But only seven teams have conceded fewer away goals than them.

Two goals from Sahr Kabba won the reverse fixture at Welling earlier this season against a Town side that were under the temporary charge of Gareth McClelland.

Kabba has not scored in his 11 appearances since then, but is the club’s joint top-scorer with four goals along with midfielders Same Come and Xavier Vidal.

Jordan Burrow is Town’s top-scorer with 13 goals but has not found the net in his last eight games.
