LAW DELIGHT AT BEST HOME WIN OF SEASON
Sunday Nov 3, 2013
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law was delighted with his side's all-round display during the 3-0 home win over FC Halifax Town on Saturday.
It was victory which brought up the best home win of the season.
"I thought it was a great all-round performance against a side that has obviously scored a lot of goals this year" said the Reds boss.
"Our plans (in midweek) were a bit hindered (due to not being able to train)and we said before the game that we couldn't let the fact that we haven't trained be an excuse, but credit to the players, they have come today and put in a really accomplished performance.
"They (Halifax) have got centre halves playing in central midfield and they are a big, strong, powerful side but we matched them and we passed the ball well.
"We have come up against aside who threw everything in, set plays in, and we have dealt with it. And when we haven't dealt with the second ball, which to be honest we haven't been great at this year, we asked for an improvement and I think we got it.
"Without too being disrespectful, it could have been six or seven. I am not saying it should have been, but it could have been, we had that many chances and I think we limited them to very few.
"I thought at the back we were solid, the midfield four were great, we kept the ball well, we did everything well. Everyone did their job, everyone put a shift in and we got a deserved result".
