Here is the verdict of the Fans Panel after FC Halifax Town’s 4-1 win over Fylde on Saturday.

Andrew Mann

Man of the match - Binnom Williams, great performance all round defensively and capped it off with a top quality goal, brilliant run and finish.

Moment of the match - King’s goal for me, with Fylde getting a goal just before the break I worried they’d come out strong in the second half but his great goal put Town back firmly in control.

Moan of the match - How can anyone have one after that performance? Exciting attacking football throughout, four quality goals and yet another home win, things are all looking very positive!

Rob Brown

Man of the match - There were far too many great performances to decide a winner so this week, I’m nominating Pete Wild. The new manager has transformed the atmosphere at the club in just a few games from a solid but dour defensive unit into an all action, entertaining team. His engagement with the fans before and after kick off is a touch of genius. It now feels like the management team want to win as much as the fans.

Moment of the match - There were some great goals and some exciting football but Matty Kosylo getting booked for dissent was a real highlight. It felt like the team was losing one of it’s star players over summer. I’m not certain Kosylo would get a start in our current team the way they are playing.

Moan of the match - It’s taken far too long to put Fylde in their place. Turning up at the Shay with just a handful of fans demonstrates everything that is wrong with modern football.

Kit Walton

Man of the match - While there were many candidates today, I think Jerome Binnom-Williams deserves it most. He struggled at the season’s start, but his fitness and performance level has improved every game since. He was solid as you like, and got forward when needed. There was much icing on the cake today; Jerome’s goal was the cherry on the icing!

Moment of the match - Four good goals today, but for the purist, the best has to be our third. Michael Duckworth found Cameron King with a delightful through ball, and King brought the ball under control and slotted it in at the near post with remarkable speed and control. A real classic in a marvellous team performance.

Moan of the match - It seems unfair to turn on the referee, but he missed plenty and made some surprising decisions, not least booking Kosylo for accidentaly getting in the way. I would have liked Kosy to come to the South Stand after the match, but I fully understand why he didn’t. Hopefully he’ll realise the stick he got was simply to put him off.
