Fleetwood recall Titchener

Halifax Town have suffered a blow with last weekend’s hat-trick hero Alex Titchener heading back to Fleetwood.

The striker, who starred in the Shaymen’s 4-1 home win over Droylsden last Saturday, was due to end a month’s loan at the Shay next week.

However, the west coast club have recalled him early, meaning boss Neil Aspin may recall Dale Johnson or Lee Gregory for Saturday’s home FA Trophy tie with Altrincham.
