Early into the new year and this game didn’t have the same vibe as the last one, with FC Halifax Town visiting York Road for the first ever time, the game ended in stalemate. Maidenhead started strongly and came close with two chances within the first four minutes. Sam Johnson pulled off some great saves and kept Maidenhead out of the game. Both chances fought for a winner at the end but neither side could snatch all three points.
