FC Halifax Town recorded a 0-0 draw away in North Wales last night to make it four points from six from their away trips to Bromley and Wrexham.

Town boss Pete Wild was forced into one change from the starting XI from the weekend with Jack Senior replacing Danny Williams who was injured in a second half challenge that saw Bromley’s Liam Trotter sent off.

Wild told the official website, “I thought we looked strong, I thought we looked hard to beat and they never got into areas to hurt us. They didn’t have a shot on target all evening. For me only one team was going to win the game.”

The Shaymen haven’t had a clean sheet in the League since the away game at Woking back in October and Wild was delighted to finally get another one.

“The clean sheet is a massive positive”, he said. “We looked solid and after a physically tough game at Bromley on Saturday to back that up with another physically tough game, the players deserve a lot of credit.

With postponements this month, all Town’s games in the Vanarama National League have been away from home

“We are unbeaten in the three away games and we have taken five points from them which is really pleasing. It is showing progression, any points on the road are important. We lost at Bromley and Wrexham last season, this year we have four points out of six.”

Town will now entertain Maidenhead United at the Shay on Saturday for the first League home match of 2021.

He concluded, “We need to back up these two results with a win on Saturday against Maidenhead. We may need to wrap the players up in cotton wool and hope we can get another good performance out of them.
