FC Halifax Town striker Ben Tomlinson believes a play-off finish is realistic for the Shaymen this season, following a 0-0 draw against Wrexham at the MBi Shay Stadium on Tuesday.

Town travel to Boreham Wood this Saturday as they face their fourth London-based away game in a row.

Speaking about Saturday’s match, Tomlinson said: “We’ve got to go into every game and try and get the three points.

“They’re another London team and they’ve got a good base of players around London, so they’ve got loads to select from but we will go to get the three points.”

Tomlinson, who replaced Josh MacDonald in the 74th minute against Wrexham went on to speak about the recent trips down South: “It’s brilliant for me because my Missus lives in London, so I get to see her!

“They’re long days and we’ve had a lot over the past month or so but that’s part of being a professional footballer so we have to get on with it.”

Boreham Wood currently sit one point behind Town in 10th position. When asked if this added an extra incentive to Saturday’s game, Tomlinson said: “It doesn’t really make a difference, we’ve all seen the league and how tight it is.

“It’s irrelevant if we are playing someone from the top or the bottom or one place below us, we’ve got to look at every game and get three points.”

Tomlinson finished by speaking about the play-off positions: “One win and you’re at the top and one loss and you’re falling away, if we can put a run of wins together then we will be right up there at the end of the season, there isn’t a reason why we won’t be.”
