FC Halifax Town captain Niall Maher was in form to help the Shaymen keep a clean sheet at The Shay Stadium as Town beat Bromley 1-0.
The skipper spoke to Shaymen TV after the match, and began by giving his assessment of the proceedings, “Overall, we were brilliant,’ Maher said with confidence. “We had a game plan today, and we went out and delivered it. Also, I’d say that we showed both sides of our game as we were resilient in defence and clinical in attack. These three points are massive at the end of the season.”
Maher went on to speak about the defensive nature of Bromley, a side whose manager (Andy Woodman) was a goalkeeper, and a club who have ex-professional defenders Alan Dunne and Roger Johnson in their coaching team, “Bromley are a big physical side,” he said. “They have two former Millwall defenders, so we know to expect them to be in our faces, however, I felt that our boys dealt with that fine.”
Niall added on the Halifax defence, who kept another clean sheet, “I believe that’s fifteen clean sheets this season now, and Sam Johnson’s 101st,” he began by saying. “As a defender, it’s really great to have these stats, and you always thrive when you keep clean sheets. However, it was a team performance, and not only from the defenders, so that puts the cherry on top of the cake.”
The captain ended his feature by looking ahead to the next game, “Torquay United on Saturday will be tough as we know they like to get the ball down and play,” Maher explained. “However, so do we, but I know that they will want to get revenge after we beat them at their place. We’ve got to rest up now and put a game plan together for Bromley.”
