Cambridge: Have To Be Composed

FC Halifax Town take a slender 1-0 advantage over Cambridge United into Sunday’s Skrill Premier Playoff second leg at The Abbey Stadium.

We got the thoughts of manager Neil Aspin ahead of Sunday’s match:

“It’s obviously a difficult game, people talk about tactics but a lot of the time tactics are determined by what the opposition do. If a team forces you back it doesn’t mean that you are sitting back it means that their good play and their forceful play is forcing you back.”

Before losing at Southport the Shaymen had previously beaten Hyde, Nuneaton, Barnet and Grimsby on their travels, Aspin has no desire to park the bus:

“We won’t go with an intention to sit back but we have to be realistic we are not just going to throw men forward and try and win the game in the first ten minutes we have to be composed.”

Aspin also believes that Town can be a threat in all aspects of play, especially when Town hit-man Lee Gregory is leading the line.

“We can’t sit back, we have to play with a threat and we know if we get a corner or a set-piece we have a chance but in general play we know we have a top-scorer in the league we know if we create chances for him we have got a chance of finding the net in open play as well.”
