Cliff Moyo is happy with his performance and also the team’s fighting spirit as Halifax came from a goal behind to clinch a draw away at Boreham Wood on Saturday.
Adam Morgan came off the bench to cancel out Bruno Andrade’s early free kick and the defender was full of praise for the spirit the team showed to fight back and take a point back to the Shay.
“It shows today, getting the draw down here. It’s a difficult place to come to and the mentality of the lads, we worked really hard today and as I say we deserved a draw but to be fair a win, a win would’ve been good but we’ll take a draw.”
The early goal put the team on the back foot and although the team fought hard, it was not plain sailing for the majority of the first half.
“I think we made it tough for ourselves to be fair, especially the first half an hour, we were a bit shaky. We kind of gave them the goal even though they did well to score it.”
“I think we kind of gifted them it a little bit so it was one of them where we could’ve settled down a lot quicker.”
A rocky first half, but Town showed brilliant reactions to turn the game round and dominate most of the proceedings at Meadow Park and it looked like more of a case of when the equaliser would come rather than if and Morgan did have a great impact off the bench, much to the delight of Moyo.
“It was there, it was coming. I’m glad for Morgan coming on and scoring as well he deserves it. But it’s one of them where we could’ve still nicked it because obviously we defended really well as a team and the chances were there.”
Any away game is going to be very tough in this division, especially the longer journeys like this one was and it could be argued that fatigue may come into play and Moyo acknowledges that it can sometimes make life a bit more difficult for the players.
“We are really strong at home, I like to think we are, so when you come away especially on long journeys like these, little things like the coach journeys, sitting down constantly, it can take its toll on you we know.”
“It’s not an excuse it’s reality though isn’t it so coming all this way, couple hours away from home and getting a point, we’re really chuffed for it.”
Cliff Moyo had been out of the first team for some time through injury and it’s never easy after such a long spell on the sidelines however the defender put in a good shift, getting up and down the right flank for Halifax and pressuring well.
The defender knew it wasn’t going to be easy to get back to his usual level however he was pleased with his performance in this game and he’s not one to sit back and assume he has a place in the starting eleven every week.
“Yeah it’s always difficult when you haven’t played in a while to jump straight into the game but it’s one of them where if I’m given the chance I’m going to take itso I didn’t want to let it slip by and I was happy with my performance.”
“There’s still always room to improve so I’m not going to settle there.”
