FC Halifax Town were unlucky not to scrape a win against Barrow AFC last time out as the game ended 0-0 and look ahead to tomorrow against Salford City.

After the game, we spoke to Shaymen captain Matty Brown for Shaymen TV to get his thoughts on the game.

“It was a weird one today. In the first half, I think we were the better team. We were creating chances and we got in behind them, Quigs (Scott Quigley), Dayle (Southwell) looked sharp and unfortunately, we just couldn’t convert.”

Jamie Fullarton’s men were denied a goal when Matty Kosylo put the ball in the back of the net but was deemed to have been offside.

“I’ve spoken to people who have seen the goal and they’ve said it’s onside which is disappointing. Things aren’t going for us at the minute.”

Captain, Matty Brown thought the performance against Barrow was better than it has been in recent weeks though and it’s only a matter of time before a goal fest comes around.

“But I think as performances are concerned, there were signs of improvements today and we’re looking sharper in front of goal and it’s only a matter of time before the goals start coming. The strikers we’ve got at the club they’d get in most sides at this level. Teams go periods without conceding goals and they go periods without scoring and it’s only a matter of time before we give a team a good hiding. “

“It’s disappointing but on paper, we’ve come away from home and drew 0-0 with Barrow, which is a horrible place to come so we’ve got to take the positives from this.”

Being a centre back Brown was pleased with the clean sheet today but knows how hard the team had to work for it.

“I’m always confident we’ll get a clean sheet but in recent weeks they’ve been a bit few and far between, we’ve conceded a few more goals than we would’ve liked to. But today I don’t think Sam has had a save to make.”

“That just shows how hard the team is working, that’s not just the defence, we defend from front to back. We’ve kept them out today, done our job as a team and on another day, we win the game.”

The Shaymen host Salford City next week at the MBI Shay Stadium. We look forward to seeing you there for a 3 PM kick off.
