IT’S West Riding County Cup duty for FC Halifax Town tonight.

Neil Aspin’s side are straight back into action at Albion Sports (7.45) following the postponement of last night’s Blue Square North derby at Guiseley.

A lunchtime inspection by the match official deemed the Nethermoor pitch waterlogged, so Halifax were left kicking their heels.

Aspin was happy with his side’s last outing that brought a 5-2 FA Trophy first round win over Altrincham and set up a second round home draw with Maidstone United.

Aspin said: "It was a good, open game.

"We felt Altrincham have a lot of fire power going forward and they score a lot of goals and the key would be who defended the best.

"After falling behind we certainly capitalised on their defending and we managed to get in and finish the game off before half-time.

"The tempo at the start of the game was good.

“I was pleased with the way we were moving it, but with their first attack they've been able to get a strike on goal, which was poor defending to allow a free hit at goal.

"The FA Trophy is an important competition. Financially it's important for the club and we want to get a run going in it.”
