Following FC Halifax Town’s 1-1 draw against Hartlepool United, striker Jake Hyde spoke to Shaymen TV to give his thoughts.
“It was a good game,” Hyde said. “In the first half we didn’t have much of the ball, but other than that well worked set-piece, they didn’t do too much. In the second half we kicked-on and we were aggressive with them. I think that showed as we won the second half 1-0. If the sending off didn’t come, I think there is only one team that is going to win it. Overall, we can’t be too disheartened with it. There was a lot to be positive about and hopefully we can build on that for Saturday.”
Town threatened in the first half with Jack Earing hitting the post and Tom Bradbury heading narrowly wide.
“The more clinical teams will win the league,” Hyde told Shaymen TV. “The more clinical we can get, the more likely we are to be up there. We created enough chances, without too many of them being too clear cut. We did hit the post and we should do better from our set-pieces. We are going in the right direction; you have to create chances and take them and we have made plenty.”
Town equalised in the second half thanks to a Kieran Green goal. The Shaymen started the second half brightly and were fully deserving of the goal.
“I felt we could have gone on to win from that,” Hyde said. “We were pushing and driving well. Even up until the equaliser we created a couple of opportunities. That was very pleasing, especially as a forward, I felt we stepped it up a notch in the second half.”
Halifax travel to face Wealdstone this Saturday with the side hoping for a bit of revenge.
“We definitely owe them one,” Hyde told Shaymen TV. “We had a couple of sending offs last time which really ruined the game a little a bit. But I feel we owe them one. We’ll put this result to bed and we’ll take the positives we’ll look ahead to Wealdstone now.”
