FC Halifax Town now have 9 wins on the road this season, the latest on Bank Holiday Monday with a 3-0 victory against Yeovil Town at Huish Park.
The Shaymen made it three away wins on the bounce thanks to goals from Luke Summerfield, Kieran Green and Jake Hyde.
Manager Pete Wild told the official website, “I thought we were excellent first half and I thought both teams did their best against the wind in what were awful conditions out there”.
He continued” I thought we nullified their threats; we knew their two wide men would cause plenty of threats and we stopped them”.
Town went ahead through Luke Summerfield’s penalty after Billy Chadwick was fouled by Albi Skendi.
Wild said, “It was a penalty, Skendi has got caught wrong side and legged up Billy. They haven’t complained about the decision”.
However, the home side were upset when referee Elliott Swallow waved away a strong appeal for a penalty and Kieran Green then doubled the lead a couple of minutes later.
“It’s a pen”, said Wild. They have been many times this season we have had pens I did not think that they were, and we have not had them. I think we got away with one there. We then go 2-0 up, Kieran’s worked hard and deserved his goal.
Jake Hyde started the game on the bench, Wild said, “We can’t keep turning him out, he can pick up injuries and I felt this was a game we could bring him on later and we were able to rest him. I’ve rotated most of the top box over the last few week and it was his turn today”.
Town still sit 5th in the table and with four games remaining, only Notts County can overtake the Shaymen with their games in hand. However Wild is not looking any further than Boreham Wood on Saturday and taking one game at a time.
He concluded, “The next big match is Boreham Wood on Saturday, it’s our only focus and we will prepare this week for that game. After that, we will concentrate on Dagenham, then Maidenhead and Chesterfield. We will see where the season takes us”.
