Boss Pete Wild is warning FC Halifax Town fans to get used to teams trying to stifle his table-topping side.

Chorley escaped with a 0-0 draw from The Shay on Tuesday after an ultra-defensive display, although the point kept The Shaymen top of the National League.

”Fans have got to understand now that teams will do that to us and we’ve got to keep the ball, move the ball and drive it forward,” said Wild.

”I came here and fans were frustrated about boom ball last year, well I’m certainly not going to boom it, I’m certainly not going to kick it forward.

”So the shouts of ‘get it forward’ are no use. They’re better off channelling their energy into keeping the ball and driving forward. That’s the way we’ll break teams down and that’s what we’re going to persevere with.”
