FC Halifax Town manager Jim Harvey felt his side didn’t create enough chances in the defeat to Kidderminster Harriers on Tuesday night.
Town were in the game for much of the first half, but then a second half collapse allowed the ‘Harriers’ to take their second win in as many matches, and Harvey felt after the game his side lacked quality.
“As much we didn’t create that much, they didn’t either. And their goal has come from a bad decision and that put us on the back foot. We put plenty of effort in, but there wasn’t any thought, and we didn’t really create a lot, only half chances.”
Sam Johnson kept Town in the match after making a fantastic save from a penalty in the second 45, but The Shaymen failed to take advantage, and Harvey expressed that if that didn’t wake his players up, nothing will.
“If that isn’t enough to make you wake up and get into the game and try and win it, then nothing is going too. We huffed and puffed but we lacked the quality.”
Town’s set pieces were a positive on a frustrating night for The Shaymen, and Harvey admitted that looked like the only way that Town would score.
“That looks like our best way into scoring at the moment, the boys upfront are just not firing and Scott has got a great delivery and we have a couple of big boys in the air, in the first half we had a few chances but when the ball is dropping down we can’t get anyone on the end of it.”
