Bumper crowd expected on the Northolme today

A BUMPER crowd is expected on the Northolme this afternoon, as Gainsborough Trinity take on FC Halifax Town.

The Shaymen are expected to travel in numbers for the clash of the promotion hopefuls at 3pm.

Steve Housham’s fourth-placed Blues host the side directly below them, knowing defeat will see them slip behind Halifax.

The two sides meet again on New Year’s Day at the Shay.
