FC Halifax Town striker Adam Morgan believes the team are on the up ahead of their table-topping clash against Kidderminster Harriers.
The Shaymen visit Aggborough this Saturday afternoon in a better vein of form, having recently picked up an impressive 3-0 win at FC United, which followed Morgan’s winner in a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Gainsborough Trinity.
Speaking after the Gainsborough match last week, Morgan said: “It’s important to keep the good form going and to keep putting the performances in.
“Every time we’ve had a bad result we’ve responded well, and we’ve been picking up points to try and finish in the playoffs.”
Despite a record for Halifax which has seen them lose just two games since the turn of the year, Morgan says that the automatic promotion spot may just be out of the team’s reach this season.
“AFC Fylde have gone quite far ahead of us now, I think Kidderminster are their closest challengers.
“I think we’ve just dropped a few too many points to be serious for the league, but we’ll keep working hard for the playoffs as there’s still games to be played.”
The former Liverpool forward praised injured winger Matty Kosylo, whose performances have earned huge praise from the Town faithful this year. Kosylo is due back from a hamstring strain in the coming days.
“Kosy’s been fantastic, like a lot of the lads this season. He really gives something to the team,” said Morgan.
Morgan’s record at Halifax is that of a proven goal-scorer, and he has been fighting alongside Tom Denton for the centre-forward role in Billy Heath’s starting line-up.
“I’ve not started many games recently but I’ve still been contributing and coming off the bench, and Dents has been doing really well.
“The most important thing is the team, and fighting for the playoffs, and to work to get promoted.”
