FC Halifax Town can move back above Altrincham in the Blue Square North with a win against Bishop’s Stortford on Tuesday (April 9, 7.45pm kick-off) at the Shay.
Town lost 4-3 to the Robins on Saturday, but have an immediate chance to lift themselves back into fourth place, and to within six points of third-placed Brackley, with victory over the Hertfordshire side.
Alex Titchiner’s brace and a one from Scott McManus wasn’t enough to prevent Altrincham claiming all three points as a double from Damian Reeves and Simon Richman helped Lee Sinnott’s side take the spoils.
The Shaymen got their season off to the perfect start with a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture back in August, and since then, Bishop’s Stortford have had some punishing away days, including a 5-1 loss at Gloucester and a 4-1 defeat at Chester.
Rod Stringer’s side are the sixth-lowest scorers in the league and have the sixth-worst defensive record, but are ten points clear of safety in 17th place.
They are currently without a win in their last four games and have only won once in their previous ten matches.
Striker Gareth Seddon could be in line for a return to action after missing the last three games since sustaining a dead leg in the 1-0 Workington, while Jon Worthington could also be recalled to the team after sitting out the Altrincham defeat.
