  1. Stanley available, food please.
  2. AFC v Coventry AFC have had an extended Christmas layoff which undoubtedly will have done nothing for the teams fitness as overindulgence is an area they excel in. Coventry provide the AFC lads with a fixture at Hipperholme this Saturday and the much needed opportunity to run off those lbs and inches gained over Christmas. Last time out saw AFC get a 1-1 draw away at Barnsley and they will look to improve on that against a Coventry side that handed them a heavy 8-0 defeat in their first game of the season. AFC were very poor that day and the result in no way flattered their opponents. Manager's favourite Simon Noble will be the first name on the AFC team sheet and play the full 90 minutes with the remainder slotted in around him. This is causing something of a disruption within the squad but the strong bond between Noble and Barker will not be broken easily. Following the match on Saturday the squad will make the short trip to Stalybridge to watch an inferior game than the one just played in but hopefully the 2nd win of the day for the Halifax lads.
  3. AFC return home V Chester. AFC return home for the first time in a month on Saturday and welcome Chester to Hipperholme. A string of defeats to some of the league's elite teams would dent the confidence of most teams but AFC have taken a few positives from these matchups. With a squad hampered by injuries and prior engagements the teams on match days have at times played some slick football and taken the game to their opponents whilst producing a valiant work ethic and never say die attitude. But AFC will look to turn around their current fortunes against a Chester side well beaten in the reverse fixture in the North West last season. The only thing more miserable than the Chester side after the game were the dreadful showers, without doubt the worst of any changing rooms visited. Young Tom Ashton would not have enjoyed that shower. However last seasons game will probably be best remembered for 'buffet gate' which saw Brandon 'Bernard' Jackson fill his kitbag with pork pies as part of well executed jape. Future Poundstretcher employee of the week 3rd place winner, Bernard, was hoping to exchange his wares for pineapple and cheese on sticks, vol au vents and cocktail sausages but it quickly became apparent that both himself and his long suffering mother had been at the centre of an evil but highly amusing practical joke. A similar result and another table of pork pies this weekend will send AFC into the festive season in high spirits.
