Following FC Halifax Town’s 2-2 draw at Boreham Wood, Manager Pete Wild spoke to Shaymen TV to give his thoughts on the game.

“It was a game of two halves,” Wild said. “We looked tired, of course we travelled down this afternoon, and it was a long journey, so we looked a bit leggy. It took a bit of time to get going and our first goal was against the run of play. They came back at us, and they finished the half really strongly, we looked like we were holding on a little bit. I had to rally the troops at half time and get them going a little bit. We started the second half better and got on the front foot more. We had more of a purpose and the subs came on to win us the game.”

Forward Billy Waters netted the equaliser with just over ten minutes left on the clock. After that, Town looked like the only team that would win it and were unfortunate not to get a winner.

“It’s another set-piece,” Wild told Shaymen TV. “That’s the second goal this week scored off a second phase set-piece. For Billy, everything he hits seems to be going in at the minute. Even with his left foot he scores tonight. We could have maybe won it, but I’ll certainly take a point. It was a really engaging game and a good one for the fans. The fans were also phenomenal tonight. I’m glad we’ve given them something to go home smiling about. Thank you for all your support. Thank you for making the long journey down tonight to watch us.”

Wild was on the side-lines today after his suspension from the Yeovil Game. The gaffer will also have to sit out the Stockport County match on Saturday.

“It came through this afternoon,” Wild said. “It came through as I was driving down that I’ve got a two-game ban. That means I missed tonight, and I’ll be missing against Stockport. I’m going to need your support more than ever on Saturday to push the boys on when I’m in the stands. I’ll get that out of the way, take my medicine and then I’ll be back.”

Town host Stockport County on Saturday with the visitors currently sitting 10th in the league table.

“It’s been a great week,” Wild told Shaymen TV. “They’ve been really exciting, and these are the games that you really want to be involved in. With Stockport at home, it’ll be a bumper crowd. We’ve got nothing to fear, we’ve just got to express ourselves. There’s no pressure on us, it’s all on them.”
