FC Halifax Town continued their fine run of form by beating Nuneaton Town 2-0, stretching their unbeaten run to six games. Adam Morgan was on target yet again for The Shaymen firing home a well-timed volley in the first half.
It was Matty Kosylo who grabbed the man of the match award however. The winger produced another mesmerising display in front of the home crowd, and when Morgan was asked about the former Nantwich Town man he was quick to point out how important he has been for the team.
“Kosylo is magic, we all know that. He’s our danger man, get him the ball and you know he’s going to make something happen. We’re privileged to have him in the team.”
The striker may even have a peculiar reason behind the outstanding performances from his teammate, as he joked that it is his own boots that Kosylo is borrowing that is behind the displays.
Kosylo was involved in creating Morgan’s goal as well, cutting the ball back for Kevin Roberts to swing in the cross to the former Curzon Ashton man who struck the ball first time into the top corner.
“I think it was another good ball by Kevin Roberts, he set up quite a few of my goals now. He is a fantastic player and a great captain as well. I just like to be there and score goals. It’s not the outrageous ones that I like. I’ll take the tap ins or whatever, I just want to help the team and I’m happy with scoring goals at the minute.”
The game itself saw Halifax dominate. Scoring twice but having many golden opportunities to put the game beyond all doubt.
Daniel Nti, Richard Peniket and Morgan himself had a few chances to make it 3-0. The striker thought he had scored a wonderful goal, latching onto a flick onto to acrobatically overhead kick the ball into the back of the net, only to be flagged for offside.
“I just reacted from a flick. I think it was Peniket’s flick. Just managed to hook it over my head and into the corner. As soon as it went over I ran off celebrating but the linesman had his flag up. It’ll be interesting to watch it back because I think it would have been a nice goal.”
The home side thoroughly deserved to take a resounding lead and Morgan believes it was an emphatic performance from his team.
“I think we totally dominated the game. We’re full of confidence at the minute that’s five wins out of the last six with one draw so we haven’t lost in six. We’re definitely happy with another win and we just need to keep the points coming.”
Billy Heath’s men will travel to Worcester next week with the chance to make it six wins in seven games and push further up the Vanarama National League North table.
