FC Halifax Town play their penultimate game of pre-season when they travel to Mossley on Wednesday night (7.45pm kick-off).

Town have lost just one pre-season match so far against Preston, overcoming League One teams Notts County, Rochdale and Barnsley as well as Tadcaster and Harrogate Town.

New signing Jamie Jackson is expected to feature and could make his first start after impressive second-half appearances against Preston and Notts County.

Josh Wilson could also play after being kept out of most of Town’s pre-season programme with a knee injury.

Mossley will be competing in the Northern Premier League First Division North this season, along with Brighouse Town.

Peter Band’s side has won five of their seven pre-season games so far, beating Stalybridge 1-0, Abbey Hey 5-1, Hyde 4-2, Maine Road 5-1 and Winsford 1-0.

They have also drawn 1-1 with Chadderton and lost 2-0 against Altrincham.
