FC Halifax Town caretaker manager Neil Young believes that his side showed great amounts of character as they came from behind to earn a deserved 1-1 draw at ten-man Wrexham.
Former Halifax striker Scott Boden gave Wrexham an early lead before Scott Garner’s late first-half header levelled the scores as Town battled to a credible point away to the league leaders.
“I don’t think at any stage, they lacked any character,” Young told ShaymenTV.
“From our perspective, we set them up in a certain way, to try and negate Wrexham’s threats, and there’s a lot of them.”
“You’ve got a group of lads who want to do well and want to learn, it’s sometimes just that bit of confidence.
Last weekend’s scheduled fixture against Dagenham & Redbridge was postponed, allowing Young more training time with the Town players, something which the caretaker manager thinks proved beneficial.
“I think the week’s break helped because previously I was only in on the Thursday night,” Young continued.
“I had to introduce myself to the players first. To get in front of the players and believing in what you’re trying to do. We’re never going to solve that on an hour-and-half on a Tuesday or two hours on a Thursday.”
“We’ve got to work on the shape of the team and the structure of what we’re going to build on. To be fair to the lads, we’ve done a lot in a short space of time.”
