Town skipper Marc Roberts, in action against Woking at The Shay earlier this season, is expected to be making his last appearance for Halifax on Saturday.

FC Halifax Town travel to Woking (5.15pm kick-off) for their final game of the season aiming to end their campaign on a high.

There are doubts over the future of a number of Town players, who may have one last chance to impress manager Neil Aspin ahead of an expected summer shake-up at The Shay.

Captain Marc Roberts will be making what is expected to be his final appearance for the club before he comes to the end of his contract.

Scott Boden and Lois Maynard are not expected to feature, while James Bolton could also be unavailable after limping off against Torquay last weekend.

The Shaymen go into the game on the back of three straight defeats and with only one win from 14 matches.

They have the third-best defensive record away from home in the division but have gone four-and-a-half hours without a goal.

Woking, meanwhile, have won five of their last eight, losing only once in that time and sit two places above Town in the table.

They have just one defeat in their last 10 home games and have scored in each of their previous 14 matches.

Only Jon Parkin and John Akinde have scored more goals in the Conference than Scott Rendell’s 23.

He has scored seven goals in his last eight matches and has netted on five of his previous six appearances at home.

Town will rise above Dover in the table if they better their result at Forest Green, but Halifax could be overtaken by Gateshead if the North-East outfit better Town’s result at Barnet.

Wrexham could also overhaul Neil Aspin’s side and push them out of the top 10 if Town lose and Wrexham win at Telford, but there would have to be a four-goal swing in goal difference as well.
