Notts Back With Trip To The Shay

Notts County are back in action tomorrow night as they play only their second game in over a month as they take on FC Halifax Town in West Yorkshire.

The game kicks off at 7:45pm and is only available for fans to watch via live streaming on the Halifax Town website here for £9.99.

In this stop start season of covid and closure sadly forced upon us and our teams, Notts are hoping to get back to winning ways after two successive defeats between postponements and isolation as they take on a team who themselves are struggling towards the bottom end of the National League table.

Halifax lost at home to Wealdstone on Saturday and had two men sent off in a single goal defeat so will be without the likes of Jeff King and Danny Williams for the visit of Neal Ardley’s men.

The 20th placed team in the division are a place above the drop zone but just a point ahead of bottom club Yeovil and have not won in six matches since beating Dagenham & Redbridge in their first game of the season.

Notts are only three points above Halifax but currently lie in twelfth position knowing a win can take them as high as seventh and into the playoff zone.

Hard to get any rhythm going, Notts have suffered due to the situation they have found themselves in but getting back on to the pitch to put things right is what Manager Neal Ardley will want from his side who should in theory now face a heavy month or so of football with ten games packed into the next 45 days.

Notts will be keen to get points on the board as they aim to climb back up the table and in Cal Roberts they have a star returning after a covid layoff was buoyed by the signing of a new contract last week.

Roberts and co will be positive they can beat a side that are struggling of late but Notts will know they have to be at their best to take all three points against opponents they beat last December at the Shay 4-2, thanks to two goals from Kyle Wootton and two from the since departed Mitch Rose.
