FC Halifax Town 4 v 0 Aldershot Town (Skrill Conference League)
FC Halifax scored four goals in a game for the second time in a week as they thrashed Aldershot Town to continue their unbeaten home record in the Skrill Conference.
FC Halifax started the stronger of the two teams and on seventeen minutes they opened the scoring following a long throw-in from Marc Roberts.
Lee Gregory was allowed to take the throw-in on his chest in the six yard box, before turning and slotting the ball past Jonny Henley in the Aldershot Goal.
Aldershot Town then had a couple of chances which both fell to Brett Williams on twenty-one and twenty-three minutes, but both of Williams right footed shots went wide of the target.
On twenty-seven minutes, Adam Smith ran down the right wing before playing a one-two with Lee Gregory and letting a left footed shot from the left side of the box high into the centre of the goal.
The next twenty minutes turned into a bit of a midfield battle with both sides giving away a number of free-kicks.
Then on forty minutes following a fast flowing move from right to left the ball ended at the feet of Scott McManus who hit a left foot shot from the edge of the penalty area passed Jonny Henley in the Aldershot Goal to make the half-time score 3-0.
The second half was much more of a midfield battle, with both teams playing some good football, there were a number of chances for both sides but either team tested the goalkeepers.
Then on seventy-fours minutes, FC Halifax won a corner which was headed home by Marc Roberts at the back post, to give FC Halifax their fourth goal for the second game in a row and moved the Shaymen into fifth in the league.
