FC Halifax Town play their first home game back in the Conference Premier on Tuesday night when they host Wrexham (7.45pm kick-off).

Town were on the receiving end of a 5-1 drubbing at Cambridge on Sunday after Matt Glennon and Danny Lowe were both sent-off in the first-half.

Both players will serve a one-game ban, which means they will miss the visit of last season’s beaten play-off finalists.

Andy Morrell’s side beat Welling 2-1 on the opening day of the campaign, with Robert Ogleby netting an 83rd minute winner.

Town boss Neil Aspin is expecting a tough game against the Welsh side, but is looking for the home fans to get behind his side.

He said: “Any time you play Wrexham is going to be a tough game. They’ll be well pleased that we’ve been down to nine men and played on a Sunday.

“It wasn’t great with the scheduling to get the Sunday game but I’m going to make excuses.

“We know what we have to do - all our players have to play at their best to get results.

“We’ve got to be positive and if the supporters see the players giving 100 per cent effort and commitment then I think they’ll stick by them.

“We’re going to be in for some difficult games but with the support of the fans we can do OK.”
