Danny Clarke believes Town have got what it takes to beat the drop, despite their slump in form. Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Leyton Orient means Halifax won just once in eight games, and have not won in the league for over a month.

But when asked if he remained confident Town could stay up, Clarke said: “Massively. We’ve got the characters, we’ve got the players, but we just need everyone to perform on the day.”

Town now face a crunch clash with Dagenham and Redbridge at The Shay on Saturday. When asked what will get The Shaymen out of their poor run, Clarke, speaking before the departure of manager Billy Heath this week, said: “Hard work, determination, fighting until the end, being positive and playing in the right areas. It’s just all the basics.

“We need to get back to basics, winning football games and not over-thinking it, not worrying about getting beaten. Every game is massive until we start getting that gap bigger.

“Every game is like it was at the back end of last season.”
