FC Halifax Town suffered back-to-back defeats after a 2-0 loss at King’s Lynn Town. After the match, a deflated Pete Wild spoke to Shaymen TV.
The manager began by giving his thoughts on the proceedings, “I’m not going to beat around the bush when I say that wasn’t good enough,” he admitted. “I’ll always back my players if they give me their all, but I can’t protect them after that today. We were beaten by a team who wanted it more than us, but with that being said, Lynn’s first goal was offside and their second was a foul.”
Halifax looked promising in the first half of the game as Gerry McDonagh won Town a penalty that was unfortunately fired wide by Matt Warburton. Then later in the half, a Martin Woods free-kick into the box was headed past goalkeeper Paul Jones by Niall Maher, but an offside Billy Waters interfered with play causing the goal to be chalked off.
So, after a good first half and the score at 0-0, Wild spoke upon what was mentioned at the break, “I said that our goal would come after we had a penalty and an offside goal,” he explained.
Adding, “However, what was said at half time didn’t happen because we never got going in the second half. We were just not good enough with and without the ball, and to be honest, I still trust my players – don’t get me wrong on that, but I just can’t defend them.”
Wild ended his feature by giving a message to the Shaymen faithful who made the trip to Norfolk, “It was a great following again, and letting the fans down is what has disappointed me the most,” he began. “The fans have delivered on many occasions this season and it’s a shame that the boys couldn’t deliver for them after they travelled all this way to be here. Please, do stick with us through the bumps on the road.”
The Town boss also confirmed that new signing Pierce Bird will be in contention for Halifax’s upcoming games after missing the match with parent club King’s Lynn.
