Andy Bishop
Andy Bishop scored two goals in Wrexham's previous match against Macclesfield on Tuesday

Wrexham and Halifax fought out a scoreless Conference draw at the Racecourse four days after both teams scored five goals in the FA Cup.

The home team dominated in the second half, but the closest they came to scoring was Andy Bishop's header against the bar from close range.

Less than a minute later Wes York just failed to get on the end of a cross.

Halifax drop one place to third, while Wrexham have not won in the League since September.

On Tuesday Wrexham beat Macclesfield 5-2 and Halifax beat Chorley 5-0 to qualify for the FA Cup first round.
