Debutant Harry Middleton said that FC Halifax Town deserved all three points after they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Woking FC at The MBi Shay Stadium.
Middleton confirmed a one-month loan to Halifax from Port Vale earlier in the afternoon and played the full 90 minutes during his first appearance for the Shaymen.
The midfielder felt that Halifax were deserving of the win as their wait for a victory in the National League stretches to eight matches.
“I thought we had the best two chances, so we were unlucky not to take all three points”, Middleton told Shaymen TV.
“We said after the game that we looked solid as a team. The main thing for us is that if you don’t concede you can’t lose, can you?
“The aim is to build on that and hopefully create a few more chances going forward and build on today’s really.
“But, there’s been a bad run of results (recently) as far as I am aware so today so stops it a little bit and let’s hope we can kick on Saturday.”
Middleton has been on the fringes at Port Vale and said manager Neil Aspin, formerly of Halifax, played a key role in the move.
“I spoke to Neil Aspin at Port Vale, he obviously had a lot of good things to say,” continued Middleton. “I spoke to the gaffer here and I should mention Tommy Nic (Tom Nicholson), the keeper, he had a lot of input as well.”
“Just basically having talks with the gaffer here and the gaffer at Port Vale and they had nothing but good things to say. It was a bit of no brainer for me.
“It’s just been a long time since I’ve had a long run of games, as I’ve been in and out in the last season or two. I’m just looking to get some first-team football and do as well as I can here and help the lads out here.”
