Another Town game off as fixtures pile up

Neil Aspin's men look set to face fixture congestion later in the season

Neil Aspin's men look set to face fixture congestion later in the season

FC Halifax Town have seen another game called off as a back log of fixtures threatens to derail their promotion bid.

The Shaymen were due to play Altrincham on November 13 in a game that has already been postponed once due to Town’s FA Cup replay with Chester last month.

But the game has been postponed again - this time because Alty face an FA Cup replay of their own against Burton Albion on that date.

Tomorrow they face Vauxhall Motors in a game that has already been postponed twice due to the Shay pitch being waterlogged.

They were also due to face Harrogate Town in the Conference North last Tuesday - but that game was postponed due to the Shaymen’s involvement in the County Cup, and Saturday’s trip to Guiseley was also postponed due to their involvement in the FA Cup.

Next Saturday Town are in FA Trophy action, which means their league game at home to Droylsden on 17 November will be just their fifth Conference North game in 10 weeks.

Town are currently 16 points behind league leaders Brackley and have played four fewer games - but they only have two games in hand on second place Chester, who are 14 points clear.
