Following FC Halifax Town’s play-off elimination at the hands of Chesterfield, manager Pete Wild spoke to Shaymen TV to give his thoughts on the game.
“Everything we tried today, just didn’t work for us,” Wild said. “They were two avoidable goals, very disappointing goals to concede. We’ve given a lot of effort but we just haven’t got there in the end.”
Town’s day got off to a poor start with Kian Spence picking up an injury during the warm-up.
“We looked tired at Stockport, and we did again today,” Wild told Shaymen TV. “We’ve got a lot of young lads who have played a lot of football this season, more than they have played in their lives. That has certainly shown in the last couple of weeks.”
Matty Stenson netted Town’s only goal of the game to give the Shaymen a chance of making a comeback, but it wasn’t to be.
“We’ve thrown everything at it,” Wild said. “We can’t be disappointed with our effort on the evening, but our quality just hasn’t quite gotten us over the line. It has been a fantastic season though. It has been phenomenal. The club has progressed and we should all be proud of what the players have achieved for this football club. Some of the landmarks this club has achieved this season have been fantastic.”
Looking ahead, Wild will take some time to reflect on this season before preparing for the 2022/23 campaign.
“It hasn’t really sunk in that we are out yet,” Wild revealed. “I’ll need to go home, relax, reflect, and we’ll see where that takes us.”
