FC HALIFAX Town travel to Gainsborough Trinity tomorrow looking to put clear air between themselves and their Blue Square North promotion rivals.
The Shaymen’s home meeting with struggling Corby Town on Saturday was called off early due to a waterlogged pitch leaving manager Neil Aspin’s team in fourth spot – a place ahead of tomorrow’s rivals.
But their inactivity saw the Shaymen remain with four games in hand on Brackley and Guiseley, who sit above them in the table.
However, leaders Chester played and won 3-0 at home to Hinckley Town – opening up a 26-point on Halifax, having played seven games more.
But Aspin was unconcerned as his side prepared to take on a Trinity side level on points with his team, but who were beaten 3-1 at The Shay on Boxing Day.
“It’s frustrating with the weather because you can’t get a run of games going and it feels like we’re starting from scratch every game,” said Aspin.
“It doesn’t matter who you are, but if you play two or three games a week come the end of the season you won’t be in peak condition – however we won’t let that affect us.
“But we just need to keep picking up points when we can do, so we are now preparing for Gainsborough.”
