FC Halifax Town couldn’t keep hold of a 1-0 lead up at Hartlepool United on Good Friday in the latest Vanarama National League fixture. Midfielder Cameron King spoke to Shaymen TV after the game beginning with his reaction to the game.
“Bit disappointing the way we lost that game. I thought we had chances in the first half especially me. On a personal not I struggled to get into the game in the second half, it was a bit sloppy a bit ragged so frustrating I think I could’ve played a lot better today. The goals we conceded weren’t great.
Devante took his goal well. I thought we deserved to take the lead, for whatever reason we just stepped off and allowed them back into the game. They’ve got some good players in their team so; they’re going to make it count and they did.”
King went onto how the opposition were able to stop Town’s advances in the second half.
“They did well at slowing the game down. Just really frustrated us and every time we got going. They’ve got good players in the midfield and kept the ball well and it was hard to get tight to them. Not good enough today just weren’t at it today, and on a personal note wasn’t good enough.”
A side note from today’s game was Harry Freedman making his professional debut for The Shaymen.
“Harry is fearless, he came on wanting to make an impression. He looked sharp; he always plays forward we see that in training. He’s got much better this year and deserved his opportunity and everything he’s got, so hopefully he can push on now.”
Next up for Town is the visit of Wrexham for the final home game of the season.
“We always do well against the top sides in the league for whatever reason. The crowd will get behind us at home and we’ll give them a right good go and get the three points.”
