STAR PREVIEW: FC Halifax Town v Ebbsfleet United

Nothing can really be taken for granted in sport but one thing that is certain today: This will be one of the most watched non-league games in recent times. Why? Well the Coronavirus outbreak has stopped nearly all football in England and Scotland, but the show goes on here and onlookers could have a decent 90 minutes to watch.

There’s little appetite to back the hosts at 4/6, despite the fact they are likely playoff contenders (assuming they’re on, as they sit two points behind third at the moment in time). Halifax have lost three of their last four games, with Woking taking the spoils last time out, and Ebbsfleet have picked up some form recently.

They’ve lost only two of their last six matches and have won at Maidenhead and Hartlepool on their travels in recent weeks to boot. They’ve also conceded the most goals in the National League, so Halifax should get plenty of chances to find the net. This could be a game with goals for all of the people looking for their football fix and perhaps the hosts can get the job done in an open game.
