FC Halifax Town’s pre-season preparations continue tonight when they take on Brighouse Town at the Dual Seal Stadium (Tuesday, 7.30pm kick-off).

The Shaymen eased to victory in their first pre-season game with a 7-0 trouncing of Scarborough, who won the title in Brighouse’s division last season.

Brighouse play in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, and were pipped to the championship by Scarborough last year, finishing 2nd.

Town boss Neil Aspin gave first starts to Adam Smith, Keith Briggs and Simon Ainge at the weekend but could make several changes to his starting line-up, with a home friendly against Rochdale to come on Saturday.
