FC Halifax Town play their final pre-season friendly when they travel to Buxton on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Town have won six of their seven friendlies so far, including victories over League One sides Notts County, Barnsley and Rochdale.

Their latest win came at Mossley on Wednesday thanks to goals from James Bolton and Richard Peniket.

New signing Jamie Jackson missed that game with an ankle injury but is hoping to recover in time to feature at the Silverlands stadium.

Buxton have won just one friendly so far this summer, 4-3 against Macclesfield, drawing with Chesterfield and Stockport and losing to Altrincham and Gainsborough Trinity.

Former Halifax defender Greg Young is among the ranks at Buxton, who are managed by former Rotherham defender Martin McIntosh, who guided the Bucks to 13th in the Northern Premier league Premier Division last season.
