FC Halifax Town left back Josh Wilde thought the side looked good when Boreham Wood’s National League promotion hopes were dealt a blow as they slipped to defeat at on Saturday with goals from Matty Brown and Mike Fondop-Talom.
“We passed the ball really well when were in possession and we are also very hard to break down.
“In the end it was the result we wanted and one that was desperately needed.”
The Shaymen’s recent win had lifted them two places in the league table and reaching the 50-point milestone which could mean they stay in the Vanarama National League next season, but Wilde believes the lads need to keep going.
“It should be enough, but we don’t want to just rely on it, we’ve got a very busy week coming up and we know that one more win should seal our safety.
“We just need to keep doing what we’re doing and possibly try and cause an upset against Sutton. It’s all about doing the best we can and getting as many points as we can.”
Josh and the Shaymen will be staying in Halifax over the next week as they will have home ties against Sutton and Gateshead. Sutton who are currently second in the league have slipped with back-to-back defeats.
“It’s going to be a tough as both sides will be desperate for the win. Sometimes teams can push themselves further when their performances tend to slip but on the other hand it can go the other way, but we won’t know until the final whistle.”
With the coming week showing two games in the space of two days, Josh believes that preparation is vital.
“It’s going to be a tough week, but we have players coming back from their injuries, so you can expect that they will be changes and everyone will get game-time.
“It’s team game and everyone will be up and ready for when they get their chance to show what they can do with it being so busy.”
