FC Halifax Town are back in action on Saturday when they travel to Dover to try and recover from the 4-1 loss at Barrow.
Jim Harvey has plenty of work to do ahead of the game and he gave his thoughts prior to the weekend clash. He began by talking about the disappointment of the Barrow game but explaining that he expects an improvement on Saturday.
“Nothing went for us [against Barrow]… but we live to fight another day. But we’ll pick up and get on with it and get ready for Dover and we’ll have a chance for us to recover this week.”
The side was plagued by absentees on Easter Monday with both James Bolton and Matty Brown missing the game through suspension and injury respectively. Sam Walker came into the starting 11 to make up for the missing men but was taken off injured in the first half. Harvey had this to say on the injury:
“It looks like a knee ligament problem so whether he’ll play again this year, I’m not sure but we’ll have to see, give him 24 hours and see how it settles down.”
With yet another massive fixture looming for Town, Harvey focused on the possibility of having a full set of defenders at his disposal this weekend, stating how much of a difference that will make to his side’s chances.
“It’s another tough game for us but at least we have an opportunity to prepare and hopefully Matty Brown and Bolts [James Bolton] obviously will be back so we’ll be stronger defensively and that’s what we need to be, we need to be stronger defensively.”
