Man of the match

There could only be one player for this this week, Tom Denton, his hat trick was amazing. His second goal was a gift but the others showed why he was brought in by Billy. After the match he came over to say hello, I was eyeing that ball but nobody deserved a signed town football yesterday more than Big Tom.

Highlight of the match

My highlight this week has to be how animated Billy Heath was on the line. As I normally sit at the top of the stand at The Shay I don’t normally see this so close up. The Nuneaton fans behind me were giving him some stick but he either didn’t hear them or didn’t care.

Moan of the match

What a fantastic start to the season with three points but my moan has to be that we conceded two goals. I stand by my prediction that we’ll finish top but we really need to tighten up at the back, we won’t win this league with performances like that every week as exciting as it was.

Much credit to Josh McDonald who was superb but man of the match has to be debutant hat trick hero Tom Denton.

Highlight of the match

Best moment of the game for me was when Denton rose high to power home Kevin Roberts free kick to put the Shaymen 3-1 up.

Moan of the match was Town’s defence switching off soon after taking the lead to concede from a set piece, thankfully not proving costly in the end!

Man of match

Tom Denton, great debut hat trick, looked a treat all afternoon

Highlight of match

200 travelling Shaymen singing “It’s All Your Fault” to the Nuneaton goalkeeper after Denton’s comedy second goal.

Moan of the match

The referee starting the game three minutes early with Halifax fans queuing to come in. Some missed the first goal scored.

Josh Macdonald - his speed is going to cause problems for other teams,

Denton’s third

Moan of match

It was a concern that at 3-1 up, we went too defensive. I have no problem with defending in general, but we pulled back much too far, letting Nuneaton back into the game. Our marking was poor for their second goal.
