FC Halifax Town came away with a 2-0 win over Dover Athletic. Pete Wild spoke to Shaymen TV after the win to talk about his thoughts, Cameron King’s goals, the fans, and Maidenhead United.

His thoughts on the game…

He said: “Really pleased. I thought, in the first half, we were excellent with the ball. We nullified their threat. In the second half we defended for our lives. They put us under a lot pressure, and I thought we withstood that. Then we said if we could stay in the game, we’d be able to hit where we wanted.”

Cameron King’s goals…

He said: “It was nice to get an early goal. It settled the nerves and really pushed us forward. But I thought all the way through the first half we were the better side. He’s done exactly what I wanted him to do. He’s kicked it as far away from our goal as he could. Luckily, it’s dropped into the back of the net.”

The fans…

He said: “We are really pleased. Thank you very much. It’s a long trip down the country, and I get that. But, thank you very much for coming because you easily could’ve stayed at home and watched it on the telly. So, to come follow us all the way down there, thank you very much for that. All the staff and the players are really appreciative.”

Maidenhead United…

He said: “It’s another tough game. We’ve got to go and back today up. We’re going to work hard all week and make sure we’re ready for that and back results like this up next week. Especially with it being another long trip on the road.”
