Maidstone 0-0 FC Halifax Town: Fans Panel
Here is the view of the Fans Panel after FC Halifax Town's 0-0 draw at Maidstone on Saturday.
Man of the match - Sam Johnson made several excellent saves to keep the scores level yet again as Town draw 0-0 for the tenth time this season.
Moment of the match - Has to be Scott McManus appearing to say his goodbyes at the end to the Town fans. Sad to see a true legend of the club look to be on his way out.
Moan of the match - Two missed penalties in two games now from different players, in fairness however I’d say a draw was the fair result.
Man of the match – Niall Maher impressed on Saturday. He gets on with his job of keeping the opposition quiet without a fuss, whether in midfield or at centre half. Macca also did well in what was probably his last game for us. He’s been a good servant, and we’ll miss him.
Moment of the match – Four minutes left, and we get a penalty. It could have been anyone, but Fondop-Talom never looked confident. Like Kosy last week, he hit the ball at the perfect height for the goalie to save. At least there’s three months now for the team to practice taking them!
Moan of the match – Puzzling team selection. Why leave Martin Riley on the bench? If he plays, Macca, Hanley and Kosy could take up their more natural positions, improving the balance of the team. Still, we got a point and another clean sheet.
Man of the match - Easy choice this week, Sam Johnson. Sam made a number of decent saves in the game and throughly deserved his clean sheet.
Moment of the match - 86th minute, the referee awarded the Shaymen a penalty and a chance to win the game. In truth, it didn’t look like a foul but sometimes you get some luck.
Moan of the match - When will we ever get a player that can consistently score from the penalty spot? The last two penalty kicks have been awful. It’s not complicated, stick it in the top corner and the goalkeeper will never save it.
