Following FC Halifax Town’s 1-1 draw away at Altrincham, manager Pete Wild spoke to Shaymen TV to give his thoughts on the game.

“I thought it was a well balanced game,” Wild said. “A tight game between two teams who had balanced sides out and similar budgets. It was two good footballing sides and a draw was a fair result in the end. For our goal it was some good football getting us into the areas we want to be in. It was the kind of finish we want to be creating so it’s very much a Halifax goal.”

Town held a slender lead going into the break but within five minutes of the restart, the Shaymen missed a golden opportunity to go 2-0 not long before Altrincham equalised.

“We’ve had some really good chances today,” Wild told Shaymen TV. “We created more chances today than we have for a while which is pleasing. But having played loads of massive teams who a big on set-pieces, we’ve conceded today against a side who you wouldn’t say are big on set-pieces. It was frustrating, their goal, it’s the only real chance that they have had in the second half.”

Halifax got back on the front foot after the equaliser and despite creating a few good chances, couldn’t find the back of the net.

“Lots of play, but nothing really clear cut,” Wild said. “Apart from the chance that fell to Gerry McDonagh which I’d have backed him to score. We made three positive subs to try and win the game, but it wasn’t to be. Any point on the road is a good point. It’s a point closer to where we need to be. We need to look at the positives which is that it’s a good point on the road.”

Town host Chesterfield on Monday in the late kick off and Wild is hoping to continue the home form that has seen us win more than any other club on home soil.

“It’s another big game for us,” Wild told Shaymen TV. “Another good game on the telly. It’ll be a tight game and it could go either way.”
