Pete Wild was disappointed with the factors that affected the game. A red card for Nathan Clarke ended his game early as FC Halifax Town held on for a point at Woking. Wild spoke to Shaymen TV after the game to discuss his thoughts, the red card, loan players, and the upcoming fixtures.
“One thing we have been accused of in recent weeks is that we’re too easy to play against.” Wild told Shaymen TV. “Also, that we can’t defend in our own box, but I thought you saw in spadesful that the lads are resilient especially after the red card. I thought we defended in our own box really well today. It’s something that has been a frustration of mine in recent weeks.”
Nathan Clarke was sent off in the 61st minute after a tackle on Shaun Donnellan. Wild felt it was a poor decision and felt Clarke was treated harshly.
“It was never a red card,” Wild said. “It is not even a foul and I’m really disappointed by the decision. The referee made a rash decision, without thinking about it. I’m talking to the fourth official and the linesman and they can help him out, which they don’t. Straight away the fourth official said it was a good tackle and no foul. Now it has gone from a good tackle to a straight red.”
Wild revealed his is considering sending a few players out on loan. Wild feels that the time is right to get a few players out on loan and to consider getting a few players in.
“I’ve got two or three that I think need the game time,” Wild revealed. “That’s all it is, getting some of the players some game time. Hopefully then, I can get some more players in to help us get some goals.”
Town face Eastleigh at home next Saturday. Town will be hoping to improve on last season’s performance which saw the Shaymen fall to a 1-0 defeat.
“Really looking forward to it,” Wild told Shaymen TV. “I’m not shying away from the fact that our home is not great. I’m not hiding away from it and the lads in the dressing room aren’t either. We are desperate to put things right, it isn’t for the want of trying.”
