  The Season So Far

After winning their first game 2-0 to Telford at home Halifax have lost the next three on the trot, letting in ten goals on the way and not troubling the opposite keeper at all.
After the 0-5 defeat at home to Northwich Victoria the chairman sent a video off to the League claiming poor refereeing standards.
Barnet on the other hand, bounced back the best way possible on Monday night beating Burton 3-0 after a rather lack-lustre performance against Chester the previous Saturday, losing 3-0 at home.

Phils Prediction

Couldn't have been more wrong if I tried for the Burton game (predicted 0-2). I think I'll back the lads from now on!
