Shaymen move up to fifth

Gainsborough Trinity 0 Halifax Town 1

James Dean was the Town goal hero as they moved into the Blue Square Bet North play off places.

The big striker headed home a Tom Baker cross in the final minute of the Boxing Day encounter to send the travelling fans home happy.

Both sides had chances in a largely scrappy affair at Northolme with Town keeper Simon Eastwood called on to make a couple of fine saves.

Baker and Liam Hogan both went close from distance for the Shaymen but it was Dean who proved to be the difference in the end
