Competition: National League
Market: Halifax win
Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365
Handed the chance to potentially take back their spot at the top of the National League, Halifax will welcome a struggling Harrogate to the Shay Stadium on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while back-to-back defeats against Yeovil and Notts County may have had some around the Shay Stadium starting to sweat, Halifax bounced back in some style over the weekend. Putting four past Barnet and now sat just a single point from reclaiming their spot at the top of the table, the mood around West Yorkshire should be on the rise. Arguably the surprise package of any side in the National League, a huge part of their recent resurge has come thanks to their form on home soil. Former Oldham boss Pete Wild has seen his side win five of their opening six matches at the Shay Stadium and Halifax should be confident of extending that run in midweek.
As for the visitors, while Harrogate may have managed to snatch a play-off finish last season, it has been a far more worrying start for Simon Weaver’s men. Quickly falling down the standings and now holding just a two-point buffer over the drop zone, fans around North Yorkshire have seen their men fail to win any of their last three appearances and a 2-0 win over debutants Chorley is just their only victory since the 24th of August. A huge part of their sluggish stat has come down to some glaring issues on their travels. Harrogate have failed to win any of their last five matchups away from the CNG Stadium, including a 4-2 hammering away at Torquay earlier in the month.
