Here is the verdict of the Fans Panel after FC Halifax Town’s 3-0 defeat at Bromley on Saturday.
Man of the match - Sam Johnson, Sam made a string of fine saves in the first half to keep the game goalless at the break and prevented Bromley from running up a cricket score by the end of the game.
Moment of the match - 45th minute: I’m not sure what happened to Bromley at half time but they came out for the second half like a different team.
Moan of the match - Bromley took complete control right from the restart after half-time, scoring three goals in just over 10 minutes. The home side passed the ball well but too many Shaymen stood back and watched.
Man of the match – It has to be Sam Johnson. The poor lad was left exposed time after time, and never lost his concentration or let the side down. Thank goodness we have him. Also worthy of a mention is Shaun Tuton, making his second debut for the club. He put in a decent shift up front on his own, although we lacked height without Tom Denton.
Moment of the match – From our point of view, the only moment worthy of a mention was when Tuton went down in the area. Probably not a penalty, but we have seen them given before.
Moan of the match – I don’t know what was said at half time, but Bromley seemed to take us by surprise when they stepped up a gear. A good ten minutes battering later, we had conceded three goals, and although there was a question mark about the foul leading to the first goal, overall we got exactly what we deserved. Nobody really got stuck in, yet we still accumulated three more bookings to add to our appalling disciplinary record.
Man of the match - Although we lost 3-0 without Sam Johnson in goal it could have easily been in double figures. He pulled off some fantastic saves.
Moment of the match - Nothing stood out during the match, however as we were leaving, passing the away changing rooms it was clear what Billy thought of his team’s performance. Good to hear someoneat the club is passionate about the game.
Moan of the match - After we went two goals down our ‘new’ signing Tuton thought he would go down in the area for a penalty, how he didn’t get booked is a mystery. It gave the home fans a giggle if nothing else.
