FC Halifax Town travelled to Chesterfields Proact Stadium on Tuesday night and came out 3-2 victors. The win moves Town top of The Vanarama National League. After the game Shaymen TV spoke to the first goal scorer Jamie Allen. He began telling us that the squad has their feet firmly on the ground.
“We are not looking at anyone else, we’re not looking at any league tables. Nobody is getting carried away we are taking each game as it comes, just trying to get as many points on the board as possible.”
The winger struck in the eighth minute for The Shaymen getting his first goal of the season.
“Obviously, I wanted to get off the mark as quickly as possible. Now I’m off the mark I want to get a good run going. The most important thing is the team is winning, that’s all I’m bothered about.”
Allen continued to give view on his first goal for The Shaymen.
“I knew (Cameron) King was going to slip me in, it was all about the timing off the pass and he got it spot on. And I’ve passed it across goal. It was a shot on goal, I passed it across into a good area, it was one of those if it was going to miss somebody at the back post could have a shot on goal.
“King is the kind of player I want to look up and find, because I know we can play well together. One two’s, me, him, Tobi and Liam, if we can get that partnership going it can only get better and better. We can cause a lot of defences some problems.”
Town made hard work of the victory conceding two goals towards the end of the game, Allen tells how disappointed the team is it got to that stage.
“We know we are solid in defence, so to concede two goals is very disappointing. We knew we couldn’t concede a second one because then they would put a lot of pressure on us. We did, but that’s football. We just had to stick together and see it out and again we’ve shown that we can do that.”
Next up for Allen and his teammates is Yeovil Town this Saturday at The Shay (3pm). The recently relegated side will provide another strong test for the new league leaders.
“Strong test for us, every team in this division nobody is an easy ride. So, we are going to rest up now and prepare for Yeovil. We know it is going to be another tough test, but we are looking forward to it. Let’s go!”
