Matt Kosylo wants to see his team mates come out of the blocks from the first whistle, as they prepare to take on Bromley FC at the MBi Shay Stadium this weekend.
The 25-year-old is hoping to see a reaction on the pitch as they look to bounce back after Dagenham and Redbridge ended FC Halifax Town’s six game unbeaten streak.
“We’ve got to turn up and make sure that we are at it because we won’t get anything for free in this league.
“I think we found that out the hard way last weekend when we weren’t at it first half.
“All that we can do is make sure we are ready from minute one and we come out the traps,” he continued.
“Bromley beat Solihull Moor 1-0 at the weekend so they’ll be coming into the game on the back of a win, and we’ll be out trying to put our defeat to rights.
“I think it’ll be a good game but I’m confident we can go and get a win.
Despite the defeat in their previous outing, the winger insists there have been no major reactionary changes to how he and his team mates approach the upcoming fixture, demonstrating a belief in what Billy Heath’s men have been doing on the training ground thus far.
“We haven’t worked on anything specific for Bromley,” he explained.
“We have done what we have done in the last few sessions which was high intensity sessions, I know people might not believe it but we have been doing some possession work.
“I think the lads have been improving and in games it has shown. We have pressed teams and we want to work hard, and I think that comes first and foremost.
“I think that has worked well for us in the past and we shouldn’t start hitting the panic buttons because of one defeat to Dagenham and Redbridge, a team who will be up there at the end of the season.
“I think the six-game unbeaten run goes to show that we are more than capable and we are full of confidence when we do what we are doing, and I think we will return to winning ways on Saturday and will hopefully grab the three points.
According to the former Nantwich Town man, confidence has been key as the team enjoyed a good start to the season.
“I feel like we doubted ourselves a bit at the start, we had a really though start against Aldershot, who were in the play offs for this league last year so it was always going to be tough.”
“But when we got a few points on the board, we started to believe in ourselves more.”
Kosylo has been one of the stand out performers in this side this season, scoring four goals in the Vanarama National League. However, he insists there is still a lot more from him to come.
“I am happy with my goals return,” he said.
“We are only ten or eleven games in and I feel like I have a lot more to come from myself.
“I think in games I could do a little bit more in terms of getting on the ball a bit more and dictating the play.
“I know I’m not going to be spraying passes out wide like a central midfielder but I feel like I can set up the play a little bit more.
