History of the Accrington Stanley v Halifax Town fixture

Accrington S. prepare to entertain Halifax Town at Inetrlink Express on Monday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Stanley are clearly on top, having won 19 and lost only 6 of the 34 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Inetrlink Express was less than a year ago, in February 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Conference match.
