FC Halifax Town manager Jamie Fullarton felt his side showed great resilience as they came back from a goal behind to defeat Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 at the MBi Shay Stadium.

The Shaymen trailed at half-time after a cruel horribly deflected opener from Charlee Adams before two goals in the space of two minutes from Mike Fondop-Talom and a Jake Howells own goal earned Town the victory.

Fullarton, who won for the first time on home soil since taking charge of the club, praised his side’s fighting spirit.

“I think great credit has to go to the boys,” Fullarton acclaimed to Shaymen TV. “They never cease to surprise me because, under different circumstances tonight, going 1-0 down, they were so resilient, in the second-half.”

“The aim and outcome are to always look for three points. I think I’ve stated clearly on numerous occasions, in every game, we’re looking to go and try and win the game.”

“I think you can see by the fans reaction, of the performance as well as the result, it’s a very pleasing night.”

Halifax are currently unbeaten in their four in the Vanarama National League, the first time they’ve achieved such a feat since September.

Fullarton said he’s pleased not only with the results that have been delivered but also the style of football that his squad are producing.

“The boys understand that the most important aspect of the game is getting the three points and it’s maintaining our league status,” he continued.

“As we move on and we progress, it’s not when you win, it’s how you win. It’s an entertainment business. I think tonight they were glimpses and signs of that.”

“Don’t get me wrong, there were many aspects that we’re looking to build on and progress, but again, I think everyone’s going home happy.”
