It’s another busy day of National League action with crucial games at both ends of the table - including promotion rivals Halifax and Bromley meeting at The Shay.  Here’s your weekend preview of the key games, with match odds courtesy of BetFred

Odds 05/02

FC Halifax Town vs Bromley

Arguably the weekend’s biggest game is between two sides pushing for promotion at The Shay.

Both clubs are level on 50 points - with the top five separated by only two points. 

Pete Wild’s side returned to winning ways against Dagenham & Redbridge last time out after a blip saw them lose back-to-back games beforehand.

Bromley are on a four game winning streak, but have only won five times on the road this season. Halifax have won 75% of their home matches, so may be slight favourites. 

The reverse fixture ended goalless. 

Match odds: Home 6/5, Draw 11/5, Away 9/4 

Chesterfield vs Dagenham & Redbridge

The Spireites officially begin the post-James Rowe era with a home game against The Daggers.

Former boss Rowe left the club by mutual consent yesterday after allegations of misconduct saw him suspended in January. 

Caretaker Danny Webb will lead the team as they look to build on their win against another managerless club, Eastleigh, last week.

Dagenham’s promotion challenge has hit the buffers in recent weeks with losses to Halifax and Stockport.  Daryl McMahon’s side have slipped outside the playoffs with one win in four. 

October’s game between the two sides ended in a 2-2 draw. 

Match odds: Home 10/11, Draw 12/5, Away 11/4 

King’s Lynn Town vs Weymouth 

This game could play a crucial part in deciding which, if either, of these clubs is going to survive this season.

Second bottom plays third bottom, with the hosts six points behind their visitors at the start of play.

Weymouth are eight points adrift of safety themselves and have played more games than Wealdstone in the position above. 

King’s Lynn have lost five on the bounce, while Weymouth are without a win since winning the reverse fixture 1-0 in October. 

The Terras have picked up a couple of impressive draws since David Oldfield took over, holding Boreham Wood and Yeovil to 1-1 draws. 

Match odds: Home 6/4, Draw 23/10, Away 13/8 

Hatters eye eighth win on the bounce 

League leaders Stockport County will be expected to pick up a routine win over bottom club Dover Athletic at Edgeley Park.

Dave Challinor’s free scoring side are aiming for an eighth successive win in the league having scored 23 times in their previous seven. 

Dover finally picked up a first win of the season, beating Eastleigh 1-0 in late January before losing to Southend United by the same score last time out. 

As you’d expect there is little value available for a Hatters win outright, but a 6-0 home win is yours at 20/1. The visitors are massive outsiders, with a 1-0 available at a massive 50/1 if you fancy a punt. 

Match odds: Home 1/14, Draw 17/2, Away 22/1 

All the other National League action 

Aldershot Town are unbeaten in five and look too strong for troubled Barnet, who have conceded eleven goals in three matches. (H: 6/5, D: 12/5, A: 2/1)

Altrincham haven’t won since November, and they host a Woking side today who beat them 3-2 last time the sides met. The visitors have lost back-to-back games themselves but have two wins in their last five. (H: 6/4, D 5/2, A 6/4)

Maidenhead United’s improved form sees them as favourites in their home game against Eastleigh.  The hosts have lost only one in six, with Eastleigh looking to avoid a fifth consecutive loss. (H: 7/5, D 12/5, A 17/10)

Notts County suffered a first loss in seven last time out, while Grimsby Town were picking up a second win in four. The Magpies have only lost once at home all season, with Grimsby poor on the road with just three wins. (H: 13/10, D 23/10, A 15/8)

Torquay United are in indifferent form - two wins in five - heading into Saturday’s fixture with Wrexham.  The visitors have picked up eight wins on the road this season and have lost one in their last seven. (H: 5/2, D13/5, A 19/20)

Yeovil Town need to improve their form if they are to make a late charge for the playoffs, with The Glovers picking up a single win in their last six.  Visitors Solihull Moors are ten points ahead of their hosts, and have scored 12 goals in their three successive wins. (H: 9/4, D 23/10, A 23/20)
