FC Halifax Town were held to a 2-2 draw away at Leyton Orient thanks to a last gasp equalizer by the hosts.

Shaymen TV spoke with manager Jamie Fullarton for his thoughts on the game.

“On reflection, the game plan went as well as it could have done, we looked a threat and created opportunities and we demonstrated what we are.”

“To come here and with the environment you’re playing in, with the 5 and a half thousand fans and with the team going for the title, I think we showed our strengths on what we’re about”

For the second time this season, Leyton Orient snatched a point in second half injury time, with James Alabi equalizing in the 90th minute during the reverse fixture at the MBi Shay Stadium.

“For the second time this season we’ve been sucker punched in injury time”

“To concede the second goal in injury time is disappointing to say the least, but you’ve got to give credit to the players and how they went about the game today”.

“The step-in progression is to see out these types of games, as a team and as a group”

The two FC Halifax Town goals came from Devante Rodney and Manny Duku, and Jamie discussed the impact that they’ve had since arriving.

“The difference in the past 6-8 weeks has been the competiton for places”
“(Rodney and Duku) suit how we play and have contributed massively with the goals and the chances created”

“But it’s a real team effort; the amount of chances we create is present throughout the squad”
