Eyeing a sneak into the top-seven by the end of the regular campaign, Halifax will welcome runaway leaders Chesterfield to The Shay in Wednesday's National League action.

Halifax vs Chesterfield Betting Tips: BTTS

Emerging from a rocky start to the calendar year, Halifax displayed a great turnaround, stringing together a flawless run of results over the past few weeks, where they put a remerkable 18 points on the board (out of a possible 21) from their last seven league outings to reignite their hopes for a top-seven finish.

One of the top three most in-form sides in the fifth tier of English football and trailing just one point behind the final playoff ticket currently held by Gateshead, the high-flying Shaymen will aim to extend their home winning streak to four matches, having previously beaten Maidenhead, Woking, and Boreham Wood, all coming from identical 2-1 scorelines.

The goal-scoring department has been ablaze of late, with Chris Willington's side lighting up the scoreboard in all but one of their last nine NL contests, impressively notching 2+ goals in five of their past six league victories, as they look to implement yet another offensive strategy aimed at unsettling the league leaders.

With just seven games left to play in the regular part of the 2023-24 campaign, Chesterfield has stormed through this year's National League edition like a high-speed train, as evidenced by their commanding record of 29 victories out of their 39 league fixtures, effortlessly ending a six-year wait for a return to League Two (the fourth tier).

Perched atop the fifth-tier table with a mammoth 24-point lead over second-placed Barnet, the Spireites have already begun to chill the celebratory champagne in anticipation of winning the title and earning promotion to a higher division, yet there's no doubt they aim to cap off the campaign with a three-digit haul of earned points, just like last season's NL champions Wrexham (111 pts).

Regarded as an unstoppable force bulldozing everything in their path, Paul Cook's troops also boast the deadliest attacking line in non-league, with just five goals shy of surpassing the three-digit mark for this term, yet it seems a drafty breeze blows through their defense, as their net has been bulging with four goals in two of their last four visits to rival territory.

With just one published clean sheet in their last nine away outings across any competition, conceding 2+ on six occasions in that span, the unburdened Spireites will find it challenging to shore up their vulnerability at the back against a full-of-confidence Halifax, especially a side firing on all cylinders in recent weeks. Anticipation is palpable at The Shay, with fans eagerly awaiting an action-packed contest featuring a flurry of goals from both sides, creating an electric atmosphere.

Halifax team news

The 21-year-old center-forward Adan George will be back in contention after serving a two-match suspension for receiving a red card in his side's 0-2 defeat to Bromley earlier in March.

Pleased with his team's recent performance, coming out on top an impressive five times in the last six National League contests, manager Chris Millington is likely to stick with the majority who have been instrumental in their recent stellar form.

Seasoned midfielder Ollie Banks is set to reclaim his spot in the starting XI after missing out on the thrilling 2-2 draw away to Oldham last time around due to accumulating yellow cards.

The Spireites boss Paul Cook, who secured the title in the fifth division well before the season's end, now has the luxury of tinkering with his lineup as they gear up for the final stretch.
