PREVIEW: SHAYMEN LOOKING TO REIGNITE PLAY-OFF PUSH AGAINST GAINSBOROUGH

FC Halifax Town will be hoping to keep their play-off dreams alive with a win over league stragglers, Gainsborough Trinity tomorrow night.

The Shaymen were unlucky to lose on Saturday against mid table side Gloucester City through a second half penalty.

Halifax Town lost 1-0 to Gloucester City on Saturday.

Josh Wilde, who joined Town from North Ferriby United in the summer had played every minute for the Shaymen this season before being brought off injured in the 49th minute.

The defender is therefore likely to be ruled out for Tuesday’s clash.

Halifax are two points away from a play-off place with a game in hand over five of the six sides ahead of them, so Billy Heath will be keen for his side to claim three points.

Trinity also suffered defeat at the weekend away to Tamworth and will want to turn their season around as they currently sit in the relegation zone, in 20th.

Dion Charles, who joined Halifax on loan from Fleetwood at the weekend, will be eager to make his second start for the club at The Shay.

Striker Tom Denton is also looking to impress by getting back onto the score sheet.

FC Halifax Town are aiming to return to the National League.

Town defender, Scott Garner spoke about tomorrow’s game saying: “We’ve got to put right the wrongs from Saturday and I thought in the first half we were good and could have gone in three or four to the good but in the second half we were well below standard so it’s up to us to put that right on Tuesday.

“We’ve got to work hard and win individual battles and be best in possession. I’m sure there will be a big response from us and we’ll get a positive result.”

Garner continued by speaking about the play-offs: “I am very confident in reaching the play-offs. We’ve dropped eight silly points lately when we had worked hard to put ourselves in a really strong position but we just need to get back on track Tuesday before it’s too late and we regret missed opportunities.

“We know as a team what we are capable of and I think that’s the most frustrating bit when we let ourselves, the manager and fans down with a bad performance.”
