Jordan Sinnott’s views…


FC Halifax Town took up the underdog status on Saturday against Dagenham and Redbridge in the F.A cup first round and impressively earned themselves a replay after a 0-0 draw.

Jordan Sinnott has been an important cog in Billy Heaths impressive Shaymen machine so far this season. We spoke to Sinnott regarding the game against Kidderminster this Saturday.


Kidderminster come into the game on Saturday with the best away defensive record in the division having only conceded 6 goals. The last league game saw Halifax come unstuck against Brackley who are similarly stubborn away from home.


‘It will be tough; they came down with us last year and I remember playing them last year thinking they were a really good side. They got the ball down and tried to play it, but the most important thing about us is we don’t focus on other teams, we feel as though we should just focus on ourselves and what we need to improve.’


Regarding the impressive draw against Dagenham at the weekend, Town are hopeful of carrying on that level of performance back to the league. Sinnott believes Halifax were good value for the draw.


‘The moods been Quite upbeat (after the weekend) going away there to a team that’s doing well in the league above and, we feel as though we gave a good account of ourselves and maybe we were a bit unfortunate to come away with a draw. We feel as though we could have nicked it.’


Prior to the home league defeat to Brackley Town 2 weeks ago, Halifax had gone on a remarkable 7 game winning run, Sinnott says that getting back to winning ways is massive.


‘We spoke about consistency it at the start of the season and building momentum, we saw that when we got those great wins 7 on the spin just how important it is. It’s not a must win game, obviously, you want to win the game the lads are upbeat by our form at home and we feel as though we’re capable of getting a result.’


Town have a very good home record this season having scored 18 goals and only conceding seven. Sinnott says that this is down to the work that Billy put into the players during pre-season.


‘We try to get the ball back as quick as possible, we did that in preseason, over the bank holiday we started to dip losing two games and Billy said we need to improve our intensity, it was that chat that sparked the run of 7 wins.’
