Scott Garner believes the points will start coming if the team continue to put the hard work in, following a 2-1 defeat to Leyton Orient last night.

The defender who joined the Shaymen from Boston United in 2016 spoke to ShaymenTV about the game and how new boy, Shaun Tuton has settled in.

Speaking about the game, Garner said: “I think it was a real tough battle and we knew it was going to be as we are both down there now fighting for points. We knew what the game was going to be like and the manager set us up positively, he got us fired up before the game.

“We went out there looking forward to the game because we knew we were going to be on the front foot.

“It’s about getting three points now and he set us up great and we went out there honestly saying that we gave it all we’ve got today and we have come up short. They’ve taken their chances and we’ve probably had a couple more than them in the overall game but they’ve put theirs away and we haven’t.

“We’ve lost 2-1 but the thing with our group is you will never doubt the effort and everyone has put such an effort in today, they are grinding to the last minute and have given everything they’ve got.

“You can’t ask for anymore from the players as we are now digging in together and we never doubt that or let each other down, so we will keep going and I’m sure we will get the results in the end.”

Halifax have now lost their previous three games in all competitions and find themselves 19th in the National League. The Shaymen play hosts to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, the visiting side are 10th in the league, five points behind the play-off places.

Looking at this Saturday, Garner told ShaymenTV: “Every game is important now until the end of the season. We are preparing right and training hard, we are trying to get points as soon as possible and if we work like we have done today then we will win every game.”

Following the final whistle last night there was a coming together between Town and Orient players. The defender put this to bed saying: “We shouldn’t be fighting after the final whistle, we have 90 minutes to show how brave we are in tackles and getting on the ball as well as performance wise. I don’t know what has happened after that but we can do with stopping it.”

Garner finished his interview by looking at latest signing, Shaun Tuton. The striker made his first appearance at the MBi Shay Stadium last night since rejoining the club on loan from Championship side, Barnsley.

“He’s [Shaun Tuton] from the same direction as me so he travels in with us which is great and he’s a top lad who works really hard. It’s exciting to have him up there with Dents [Tom Denton] I think, some support for Dents when he wins the headers and Toots runs all day, he puts a shift in, I’m sure he will start banging in the goals for us.”
