Slazengers mens second team travelled to Halifax on Saturday coming away with a 0-0 draw but have only themselves to blame as they dominated possession and chances throughout. The marker was laid almost immediately when Jake Barras got on the end of a neat passing move only to be thwarted by an in form Halifax keeper. Shortly after Slazengers hit the post twice, firstly through Simon Chamberlain and then Brett Cunningham.
Midway through the half James Cowden in the Slazengers goal was called upon to make his only save of the game and did so with comfort. Slazengers had a number of short corners towards the end of the half but couldn’t convert.
The second half was much of the same, Slazengers controlling possession and creating numerous chances only to be found wanting in front of goal. Man of the match Matt Banks was excellent in the centre of midfield distributing well to all areas of the pitch and it was he who had the final chance, driving into the ‘D’ and unleashing a fierce shot only to be once again denied by the Halifax keeper. Slazengers will try to get back to winning ways at home to Leeds on Saturday.
