Heath Happy As Shaymen Start To Sharpen Up Again

FC Halifax manager Billy Heath feels his side are starting to get it right on the road after grinding out a point at Maidenhead United.

The goalless draw came after Town’s last away game at Dover Athletic ended in the same scoreline.

He told the club’s official website that while it may not have been the most pretty game, his team defended well.

“It’s a good point,” he said. “Any point’s good away from home. I thought it was a tough game. I was a bit disappointed with our first half performance I don’t think we got close enough to them to compete well enough. it was difficult going up the slope, there’s a big slope.

“Second half we were going down the slope, we kicked on and slightly edged it second half. I think in the end a point apiece was a fair result.”

A point and a clean sheet after the club’s 4-1 hammering to Macclesfield at the Shay last time our came as a relief.

“It was a very tight game,” Heath added. “Two teams really putting pressure on each other and never really giving each other much rest bite.

“It wasn’t a flowing game of football, it was very bitty, and I think the pitch dictated that at times, the pitch was very, very soft and cut up a bit.

“It was a tight game of football, I think both teams at the end were pleased not to lose it. I think we pushed second half, we were better second half.”
