A long trip down to Bromley finished with both sides taking a point. A late equaliser from Jordan Preston rescued a point for FC Halifax Town in a 2-2 draw.
Speaking to the official website about the game was goal scorer Jordan Preston who stated that it was a relief to get a draw but felt they could have got the three points.
“I think it was a relief to get a draw in the end, but looking at the whole game, I think as a dressing room we’re disappointed to not come away with the 3 points today as we felt we had a good chance to go on and start a bit of a run.”
When asked about the penalty that gave Bromley the lead in the first half Preston said:
“I’ve not seen it, I didn’t have a good view of the penalty, so I can’t really comment on it, but I think obviously it was against the run of play in the first half. Apart from that they didn’t get out their own half, but we’ve just got to start taking more of these chances.”
He also spoke about how the team always backed themselves despite the second Bromley goal.
“I think we’re always in the game we’re playing, apart from maidenhead this season, and I think we always thought we could get back in the game as we know we’ve got quality in the team that can produce moments like Sellars’ cross at the end.”
Reflecting on his own performance and his late equaliser especially, Preston said:
“We work on it in training, getting in the box, wingers getting inside the frame of the goal and Sellars has put in a great cross and I’ve managed to get on the end of it and it feels good to get the team a draw.”
Turning his attention ahead to the away game against Aldershot Preston revealed that whilst it may a difficult test, they are still looking forward to it.
“From past experience playing Aldershot they’re always a good footballing side it’s a nice pitch so we’re looking forward to it and we see it as another chance to go and kickstart again and go on another run.”
