FC Halifax Town manager Billy Heath felt that his side deserved more than a point after his Town fought to a 1-1 draw away to Boreham Wood at Meadow Park.

Bruno Andrade’s eighth-minute free-kick put Boreham Wood in front but Halifax dominated for much of the match, with Adam Morgan’s late equaliser securing a well-deserved point.

Heath believes that his team were unfortunate not to have taken all three points, particularly given their second-half spell of control. “I think we slightly deserved a little bit more,” Heath told ShaymenTV. It’s a difficult place to come. I think it was a very even game.”

“Probably the draw is the right result, but I thought for periods, big periods, especially just after half-time, the first 25 minutes after half-time, I thought we dominated.

“Dents (Tom Denton) got a goal given for offside, I’m not sure about that one, I’d like to see that one back, he didn’t look offside at all. You just think maybe it might be one of those days.”

The Town boss was also full of praise for his side’s character to fight back after falling behind in the first 10 minutes of the match. “Like I’ve said, time and time again, the character of these boys is never in question, the desire in never in question,” continued Heath.

“It was a big body blow obviously to concede early and we shook ourselves out of it because for five minutes after that it was a big body blow. It’s hard to take when somebody scores but after that (it was an) even game between two good sides.”

“There were real positives after half-time, we really started well and I don’t think anybody can deny that we deserved a point out of that game.”

Heath switched to a 3-5-2 formation in order to match up with the Boreham Wood own tactics and felt his three-man defence were solid in the new set up. “I thought all the back three were tremendous today,” lauded Heath. “Browny’s having a great spell at the minute and touch wood he can stay on the pitch and stay fit.

“I thought Nathan Hotte once again did well and he goes under the radar at times as does Josh Wilde, playing as the left-sided as the three of the centre-halves.”

105 Shaymen fans made the journey to the capital for the afternoon’s game and Heath said that the support helped his side in their late push for a leveller. “They were fantastic, absolutely fantastic, Heath said. “And they made some noise as well, it’s just great support, three London away trips and we’re just pleased that we got something for them.”

“I think it would have been a travesty for everybody involved, and especially the supporters, if we got nothing from the game. They kept going, they kept pushing us on. They can see what the players are giving to the team.”
