FC Halifax Town will be aiming to give it their Sunday best when they host fellow play-off hunters Woking at the Shay (2pm kick-off).

Halifax go into the match on the back of two narrow defeats to Bradford and Grimsby and are at home on Sunday on BT Sport for the second week in a row.

Steve Williams missed the Grimsby defeat through suspension, with Rochdale loanee Sean McGinty taking his place, but is available on Sunday.

Neil Aspin may also be able to hand a debut to another loan signing, a forward who he hopes to bring in from a Football League club in time for Sunday’s match.

Woking beat Town 4-3 at the Shay last season in Halifax’s only home league defeat of the campaign, with forwards Scott Rendell and Jack Marriott grabbing all four goals between them.

Rendell is the top-scorer in the Conference with 13 goals, but has just one in his last four games.

Woking enjoyed a blistering start to the season, remaining unbeaten in their first nine games, winning six.

They then lost three in a row before winning their next three on the spin, but have won just once in their last five.

Defender Joe Jones will miss the game through suspension.

Only Barnet have conceded fewer goals or won more games on the road than the Cards in the Conference.

But only Eastleigh have won more home games than the Shaymen, with only Barnet scoring more home goals in the division.
