FC Halifax Town are back at The Shay on Saturday after their temporary switch to Rochdale when they host Worcester City (March 2, 3pm kick-off).

The Shaymen will be looking for their sixth consecutive win in all competitions, which has seen them climb to 4th in the Blue Square North and reach the final of the West Riding County Cup.

They are also unbeaten in ten home games in all competitions, while Worcester have lost their last three matches and have won just three games so far in 2013.

Gareth Seddon got Town’s winner the last time the two teams met in December to give Town a 1-0 victory.

Jon Worthington missed Tuesday night’s 3-1 win at Vauxhall Motors with an ankle injury, but could be back in contention after Paul Marshall’s departure to Stockport earlier this week.

It will be the first of four home games over the next two weeks for Halifax, who face bottom club Hinckley on Tuesday night.
