FC Halifax manager Jamie Fullarton felt that there was an “air of disappoint” in the dressing room after they drew 1-1 at Guiseley’s Nethermoor Park.
It was a cold and windy affair as Town came home with a point. The Lions had struck the first blow from Kayode Odejayi’s header and had lost John Rooney from a straight-red just before the first half concluded.
However, Halifax had grabbed the equaliser from a clinical counter-attack set up by Sam Johnson which land onto the feet of Ben Tomlinson and was able to chip the ball over Coddington into the back of the net.
“They were disappointed to come away with a point from a derby game away from home, it speaks volumes of the expectations that we demand of each other.
“The conditions were very difficult; it was different to what we have been used too as well as a contrast in style.
“Even though we’re unbeaten, a point away from home is always a good thing in this league.”
Despite their current relegation status, Jamie was impressed with how Guiseley performed after taking the lead in the first half.
“When you have a lead and you’re at home, it gives you something to hold on too. They showed great character and resilience.
“But no point did I feel that when we were 1-0 down, we wouldn’t get something from the game.”
Jamie will now take the positives from this game and move forward to our next match against Solihull Moors at the Shay.
“Even though we got a draw away from home in a derby game, we know that we can do better, and we’ll try do that next Saturday.”
Shaymen TV subscribers will be able to watch the full interview as well as an interview with Michael Collins.
