Adam Morgan has told that FC Halifax Town will go into Saturday’s clash away at Stalybridge Celtic knowing what to expect from the Vanarama National League North strugglers.

Stalybridge currently sit second from bottom in the League, and as Town enter the business end of the season Morgan reckons the team are ready for a ‘well organised’ and ‘tough’ outfit.

Morgan said: “They’ll be up for a battle but we’re ready for the fight, and if we match their hard work and fight then our quality should show through and hopefully we get the win”.

The striker who joined from Curzon Ashton in December has begun his FC Halifax career with four goals in two games and says that this is the ‘perfect club’ for him: “Hopefully I want to eventually get back into the league, that’s why I joined FC Halifax”.

Town will be determined to put their recent lapse in form behind them on Saturday at Bower Fold, but Morgan says despite his fantastic personal record, it’s all about the team and picking up the results.

“Yeah it’s a good start so far, obviously it’s nice to hit the ground running and get the four goals, but obviously the results haven’t gone the way we wanted them to, so we’ll just be looking at trying to correct that as soon as possible.

“It’s not about me, far from it, it’s about the team. It’s a team game and we’re all in it together. We want to get the results right and get a win on Saturday”.

FC Halifax have two games in hand on fifth place Salford City, and two wins from their next two games could fire the Shaymen back into play-off contention.

Morgan says it’s all about the team beginning to click: “We know our two games in hand puts us back around play-offs, so we’re still really confident and that’s what we’re positive about.

“We haven’t been playing our best football but we’re still in with a chance of being in the play-offs if we get the results.

“We’ve got some great players here; we can see it’s just a matter of time before we all click.

“It’s been a bit of a bad period with so many games so fast but I think as soon as we get one or two wins, we’ll be right up there come the end of the season”.

Morgan says he had no qualms with leaving the club that made him ‘fall back in love with football’, after quitting league rivals Curzon Ashton to join Town.

“I’ll be forever grateful to everyone at Curzon, they have a fantastic manager and backroom staff,

“but I think, whereas the likes of Jamie Vardy and players like that have come from FC Halifax, that’s why I thought this would be the perfect club for me”.

FC Halifax Town will travel to Stalybridge Celtic’s Bower Fold this Saturday with the game due to kick off at 15:00pm.
