FC Halifax Town manager Jamie Fullarton was pleased with the reaction which he got from his players as Town drew 0-0 away at Maidstone United.

The gaffer noticed a determination from his side in the second half, following the first 45 minutes which showed nothing between either side.

Fullarton was also very complimentary to the supporters who travelled down to The Gallagher Stadium.

“To see a reaction, from the two disappointing goals which we conceded against Tranmere was pleasing for me.”

“There was nothing in the game in the first half and the reaction from us in the second half.”

“it was definitely easy to tell that we had a lot of the possession, more so in the first half an hour of the second half.”

“It saw us get a lot of possession, which resulted in us almost threatening with half chances, and it was very pleasing to see.”

“I think that the fans who have travelled down, especially in the last 15 minutes, got their value for money. Overall, it was a fair result.”

The former Notts County manager was happy with the attitude of his side throughout the match which lead to chances to win the match.

Fullarton believes his side will learn from the penalty miss but wants them to manage the game better once they have missed the spot kick.

“I think the players understand where their responsibility lies, I think we demand a certain level of application and attitude.

“I think in the final third there was a lot of movement which created the half chances.”

“It is always disappointing when you miss such a big chance like a penalty. It is a learning curve for ourselves because when that happens the momentum shifts and allows them to come forward onto you, and I think we need to manage that slightly better.

Again, goalkeeper Sam Johnson was the centre of attention for his heroics at the end of the match which kept his record of the best clean sheet record outside the top half of the table.

Fullarton was adamant that every match is important, no matter what the outcome of it is and expects his side to prepare as well as they can do for every match.

He was very pleased with the target of staying in the division being met and is looking forward to the next campaign already!

“Sam (Johnson) made two very good saves late on in the game which made it excite for everyone inside the ground apart from me!”

“Every game matters, whether you are safe or not. There always needs to be maximum preparation for every game which we play. When you represent FC Halifax Town,

“We have been able to win some very big games at some very important times. But the performance has been very good, which the fans seem pleased with.”

“During the closed season, that is when I will work very hard in preparation for the new season.”

“It is important to engage fans and that is done by performances being put in on the pitch which has been evident since I come in here. They are very appreciative, and we look forward to next season!”
