FC Halifax Town captain Matty Brown is convinced Billy Heath would have kept the club up, and says the players need to take their share of the blame for his departure.
Heath left the club last Wednesday after winning only two of his last 20 league games in charge, despite Town being four points above the relegation zone. Brown says he was “gutted” when he heard Heath had gone, but is now calling on his team-mates to start putting things right on the pitch.
He said: “The result against Leyton Orient wasn’t what we wanted, we weren’t good enough, and the next day the gaffer and Bobby (assistant manager Mark Carroll) have basically taken the rap for our performances. I don’t think we as players are taking enough responsibility.
“The manager is the one who takes the brunt of it in football but it’s definitely a shared responsibility – we’re as much to blame. We’ve always said we win and lose together.
“We came a long way with the gaffer but as a club we’ve got to regroup because we need to make sure we stay in this league.”
