Winger Danny Williams is pleased with Halifax’s hard fought draw against Woking despite having ten men.
FC Halifax Town’s clash against Surrey-based Woking FC was goalless, with experienced defender Nathan Clarke being sent off just past the hour mark.
When asked about the the team’s performance, Williams commented:
“We started well the first five or ten minutes, in the 2nd half we wanted to come out to be more positive and attacking-minded.
“It didn’t pan out that with the sending off. The boys dug in and defended well and in the end it turned out to be a good point.”
Captain Matty Brown returned to the starting XI following a lengthly hamstring injury, managing to play for the full 90 minutes, when asked about having the Brown back into the side, winger Williams said:
“Browny was unbelieveable, he’s a leader, and you want players like that in your team who are willing to throw their body on the line, and he’s been brilliant today to say it’s his first game back from injury as well.”
The former Inverness Caledonian Thistle player also returned from injury:
“I had hurt my groin and was out for four weeks, so it was my first game back and it was good to play 90 minutes which was my first this season.”
The Shaymen next have a home fixture at the Shay Stadium against Eastleigh on Saturday 23 November.
“The gaffer has said we want to improve on our home form and it’s good to get the home fans in and give them a win, it’s been a while and it’s something we’re going to try to do.
“At the start of the season, the Shay was a fortress, but then we eased off that a little bit. It’s our home and we definitely want to make it a fortress by making teams come and struggle against us.”
A victory next week could see the West Yorkshire based side return to the summit given other results, but Williams insists he’ll be focusing on one game at a time:
“We’re not getting too concerned about the league at this moment in time, we’re taking each game as it comes and hopefully we can take three points next week.”
