Aldershot Town: As Long as I Score

Two goals in each half from Skrill Premier and FC Halifax top goalscorer Lee Gregory was enough to seal a point at Aldershot on Saturday, we got the thoughts of the inform forward after the game.

“Not a very good performance, first half we did well, I thought we were the better side. Second half the wind just killed us it was one of the worst conditions I’ve played in weather wise but we got a point so well deserved.

“The first half was a bit windy but it weren’t to bad and then come out for the second half and it was horrific the rain and the wind we couldn’t defend against it the ball just kept coming back all the time and funnily enough we scored and all of a sudden it stopped which was a bit weird but there you go.”

Gregory now has 17 goals in all competitions, he told us he will always be content as long as he finds the net.

“To be honest I play every game where I never touch the ball as long as I score, second half didn’t do anything I don’t think I touched the ball more then twice but I got a chance and I took it and fortunately it went in.”

Injuries in the first half to Simon Ainge and Matty Pearson forced a shuffle around of personnel at the back in the second half, Gregory sung their praises.

“The defence are always class week in week out its just unfortunate with some goals they switch on and off and it’s a bit sloppy but today the lads did class at the back, they shifted around and Craig Clay played right back, I don’t know whether he has played right back before but he did a good job Jon Challinor played left back and was absolute class he could stay there all day for me, Robbo (Marc Roberts) strong again and Lois (Maynard) you could play him anywhere on the pitch and he will give you 110%.”

The draw with Aldershot means FC Halifax have only lost once in their last away trips, Gregory believes fighting for promotion is the aim.

“We are taking every game as they come but we want to achieve we want to get promoted, we don’t come to each game for a draw we come to win every game, hopefully we can get into the play-offs and you never know do you football is a funny game.”
