FC Halifax Town’s three-game week concludes with a trip to Solihull Moors on Saturday (March 9, 3pm kick-off).

The Shaymen will be looking to get back to winning ways following Thursday’s 2-1 defeat to Harrogate at the Shay.

Town’s 2-1 loss at home to Harrogate was only their fifth league defeat of the season, and their first since New Year’s Day.

That was their third game in six days, while Solihull have only played once so far this month, when they beat Stalybridge 3-0.

The clubs’ previous meeting this season ended in a 0-0 draw at the Shay.

Town boss Neil Aspin confirmed defender Liam Hogan will miss the trip after picking up a knock in the defeat to Harrogate, and said it will be a testing end to a busy week.

He said: “It’s my job to pick the players up for Saturday and put a team out with fresh legs and try and get a result.

“They’re a big strong team who don’t concede too many goals. We know what we’re up against on Saturday but we need to get some energy and some legs. It’s not ideal when you play Thursday night, go to work on a Friday then you have to play football again on a Saturday, so it is tough.”
