Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Halifax v Wealdstone (inc. the best betting odds).
Halifax will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 1-0 National League losing effort in their last game against Maidenhead United.
Kane Ferdinand (35') was the scorer for Maidenhead United.
It has been seldom in recent games where Halifax haven’t conceded. The facts show that Halifax have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 5 goals on the way. Such a pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this game, however.
Wealdstone come into this clash following on from a 3-2 National League win in the defeat of Rochdale in their last game.
For Wealdstone, the goalscorers were Jack Cook (45', 95') and Sean Adarkwa (56'). Kairo Mitchell (10') and Ryan East (52') scored for Rochdale.
The stats tell the story, and Wealdstone have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 8 goals in total. Defensively, Wealdstone have not been doing too well.
Analysis of their past results shows that Wealdstone:
- have not emerged victorious against Halifax when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 13 league matches. They must be getting so desperate.
