Players ‘tried their best’

FC Halifax Town boss Neil Aspin said he couldn’t fault his players’ attitude and committment as they drew at Brackley Town.

Town worked hard but never really looked like scoring against an organised Brackley side.

“I don’t fault the players for their attitude and committment, they obviously tried their best,” he said.

“But certainly the quality wasn’t there and it was a very scrappy game. I would have liked to have seen more attacking and better quality but the main thing is that we haven’t lost today and we have to looked at this as a point gained rather than points dropped.”

“It was a closely fought game and there weren’t many chances, you would probably say although we had more possession in the first half they probably had the better chances. I don’t think either team did enough to win the game. Coming away from home to a team who are top, you don’t consider a point a bad result, but I would have preffered us to have done a little bit more.”

“Chances were at a premium throughout and at the end both teams were hopeful of getting the winner but a point was probably fair,” he said.
