Following FC Halifax Town’s narrow 1-0 defeat against Wealdstone, Dom Tear spoke to Shaymen TV to give his thoughts on the game, coming on early, defending with 10 men, and looking ahead to Solihull Moors.
“We’re all really gutted in there,” Tear said. “I think the lads can keep their heads held high tonight. We put on a good performance, but everything went against us. I think on balance, it was a brilliant performance, and we can take that into Saturday.”
The winger was forced on in the 15th minute following an injury to Matt Stenson. Tear was happy to get plenty of minutes but wishes Stenson a quick recovery.
“I’m gutted for him,” Tear told Shaymen TV. “He’s just come back from a hamstring injury so hopefully this on isn’t too bad. So, I wish him all the best. I was pleased to come on, but at the same time you don’t want to see a teammate get injured.”
Following Jeff King’s dismissal in the 4th minute, Town did well to withstand the pressure from Wealdstone as well as create some chances.
“Coming in at half time we said we had done the block really well,” Tear said. “We knew we had to be tough to play against and I thought we did really well. Sliding and getting challenges in is really important and I thought we were brilliant.”
The Shaymen travel to midlands side Solihull Moors on Saturday.
“They’re a very good side,” Tear told Shaymen TV. “Solihull have done well so far but we’re going to go there full of confidence. After tonight we’ve shown we can still compete with less men so hopefully we can go there and get the win.”
