FC Halifax Town striker Jamie Allen gave his thoughts to Shaymen TV following Town’s 1-1 draw away at Aldershot Town yesterday.

“To be honest, we’re disappointed. Obviously, we conceded early, which was really sloppy. We gave ourselves a mountain to climb within the first couple of minutes. I felt that the overall performance wasn’t great, to be honest. We stuck together and we kept fighting, we worked hard for each other and we’ve come away with a point. We were probably unlucky not to get three points to be honest, we could’ve nicked it, but like I say, when you concede early on, it’s always a difficult game.”

Allen said it was “pleasing” that the side showed the character to respond well after going behind so early.

“When we were 1-0 down, we knew it was gonna come anyway. We knew the lads were gonna keep at it, stick together, that was never gonna be a problem.”

Allen had an entertaining match-long battle with the Aldershot left-back throughout the game, and said;

“Me and the full back had a good little duel going together, against each other. The fans were giving me a bit of stick, but I love that, I thrive off that, and it’s always good to have a battle with your opposite number”

For the first time this season The Shaymen now have a midweek break before taking on Fylde at The Shay on Saturday. Allen said the squad would appreciate the recovery time before the next fixture after a busy start to the campaign.

“We’re gonna have to get the rest in now because rest is obviously important. Fylde are gonna be a really tough test, we know that, so yeah, we’re gonna rest up, we’re gonna be prepared for Fylde.”
