The Pilgrims have won four of their last five encounters, but will be tested to the maximum when they head to The Shay at the weekend (kick-off 3.00pm).
The Shaymen have started the new season brightly and in addition to currently sitting fifth in Blue Square Bet North, have booked a trip to Lincoln City in the fourth and final qualifying round of the FA Cup with Budweiser.
After losing 1-0 to Colwyn Bay in their opening home fixture, Halifax have responded to record comprehensive home wins over Workington (5-1), Oxford City (3-1) and Gloucester City (5-0). They also defeated Chester FC 3-1 in Tuesday’s FA Cup replay.
United hope to have striker Spencer Weir-Daley back in contention after an ankle injury, while defender Sam Craven is available after being cup-tied for the 2-0 win over Tadcaster Albion last week.
Midfielder Matt Wilson is showing no signs of being nearer to a return following a long-standing knee problem.
Last season’s corresponding fixture ended 3-2 in Halifax’s favour after the Pilgrims rallied well from a three-goal deficit.
Fancy a flutter with Blue Square Bet? Halifax are overwhelming 4/7 favourites to beat United, who are themselves priced at 7/2. The draw is on offer at 14/5.
