Following their recent winless run, the hosts have fallen to 15th place in the standings, although they are still considerably higher than their visitors, who are rooted to the bottom of the table.

Halifax failed to score in their first four matches this season, a problem that has continued to plague them, given that they have the second-worst scoring record in the division, netting just 24 times in 25 league matches.

However, the Shaymen are still well in contention for the playoffs, sitting just six points off seventh-placed Bromley while also having a game in hand at their disposal.

Halifax’s home form has been the main reason they have been able to stay within touching distance of the playoff spots, not losing a game at the Shay since the beginning of October, winning six and drawing one of their last seven on home turf.

Last time out, Chris Millington’s side came empty-handed away at Torquay United, losing 1-0 against a side currently in the relegation zone, and so, a much-improved performance will be required on Wednesday.

After being relegated from League Two last season, Scunthorpe find themselves in real trouble of suffering the same fate again, currently five points from safety, having also played three more games than 20th-placed Oldham Athletic.

While they have struggled at home, Scunthorpe’s away form has been their main issue this season, still searching for their first victory on the road, having lost on nine occasions and drawn on five in the National League.

Interim manager Michael Nelson has a huge task on his shoulders to turn around his side’s fortunes, given just how rare it has become for them to win matches, taking three points in just one of their last 12 league games.

The Iron were able to show some promising signs against fellow strugglers Maidenhead United in their first home game in 2023, claiming a 3-0 victory, with Caolan Lavery bagging a hat-trick.

However, Scunthorpe suffered a 2-0 defeat to Woking at Glanford Park in their last game, and they face another tough test on Wednesday, given that they lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture against Halifax earlier in the season.

Halifax Town vs. Scunthorpe United Head to head

These two teams have previously met on just one occasion last year, where Halifax Town claimed a 2-0 away victory.

Scunthorpe United Team News

Caolan Lavery is most likely to be in the Scunthorpe starting lineup following his recent performances, with the striker scoring six goals in his last seven matches for the visitors.

Alfie Beestin is the forward’s likely strike partner, with Marcus Carver out with a groin injury, while Liam Feeney will also continue to miss out due to a hamstring problem.
