FC Halifax Town’s Cameron King felt that Sho-Silva deserved the goal that at the time appeared to have been scored by King himself.
King came on as a 66th minute substitute for first half goal scorer Liam McAlinden. King immediately took control of the game and linked up well with winger Jamie Allen.
“I always look to play with J, he’s always positive, he always wants to beat his man and play forward and he always looks to pass and go. So the link up is quite good there so anytime I get the chance to give the ball to Jamie I will,” said the attacking midfielder.
Allen then appeared to assist King for The Shaymen’s second goal of the evening but it appeared that Tobi Sho-Silva may have got the final touch.
“I think it came off Tobes, but yeah he deserved the goal if it did, so we’ll give it to him, ” King admitted.
The game itself was quite an even contest at a fast pace with both sides creating chances. The former Scotland under 21 international gave his thoughts on the contest.
“It was end to end, it always is on 3G, it was a zippy surface tonight. But i’m just gutted we couldn’t hang on I felt like we were probably the better team. The boys worked brilliantly tonight.”
The side appeared to line up in a 4-4-2 formation with McAlinden and Sho-Silva up front, when King came on this switched to a 4-2-3-1. King gave his thoughts on the change in systems.
“I’ve always played in the 10, it’s something I think I can do. But at the minute I’m physically struggling to play 90 minutes and the gaffer knew this was going to be a fast tempo game so he knew this wasn’t going to be my match. But Macca and Tobes were superb tonight,” he said.
