Tamworth: An Off Day

Paul Marshall had a mixed day in Halifax’s defeat to Tamworth. He continued his comeback from illness today, but said: “I’m still struggling. I was very tired against Gateshead. I will be ready for the next match. Illness is no excuse for today.”
With the future fixtures very much in mind, Marshall made it clear that the team needed to “put it behind us, and concentrate on what we do well, rather than the bad.”
Reflecting on today, Marshall was quick to point to the pitch: “the pitch was very narrow, and it doesn’t suit us. The conditions didn’t play a part today, but we’re used to a wider pitch. To be honest, we just had an off day.”
While Marshall was sure of himself today, he was at a loss to explain the away form: “I’ve said it before, I can’t put my finger on why it is the way it is. We’re so good at home, but poor away. Things just don’t seem to go our way away from home.”
Like the team, Marshall will be hoping to leave the negatives behind as the Shaymen look to bounce back against Salisbury in their home comforts. 
With his illness providing a setback, Marshall will be hoping to bounce quickly, just like the team.
