FC Halifax Town boss Neil Aspin said his side must improve ahead of two games in three days over the bank holiday weekend.

Town got their season off and running in the perfect fashion last Saturday with a 2-1 win at Bishop’s Stortford, but followed it up with a disappointing performance at the Shay on Tuesday night which saw them go down 1-0 to Colwyn Bay.

Town are at home to Workington tomorrow before taking on local rivals Bradford Park Avenue at the Horsfall Stadium on Bank Holiday Monday.

Aspin said: “It’s difficult to win games.

“Nobody is going to make it easy for us and we’re going to have to play well if we want to win.

“It doesn’t matter which players are on the pitch, we’ve got to play better than we did against Colwyn Bay.

“It’s a big game for all the teams who come here and they want to get a result. We’ve got to respond to that.

“The next game is always the most important game and we’ll be looking to get the win,” he said.
