Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: FC Hal­i­fax Town moved eight points clear of the drop zone thanks to a 3-1 win at Wok­ing, Jamie Fullar­ton’s first vic­tory in charge.

Matty Ko­sylo scored twice and winger Con­nor Thom­son marked his de­but with a goal to seal Hal­i­fax’s fourth away league win of the cam­paign.

Com­bined with Soli­hull’s de­feat at high-fly­ing Sut­ton, the re­sult puts Hal­i­fax in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion to go on and se­cure their fifth-tier sta­tus with 10 games re­main­ing.

Just af­ter half-an-hour Ko­sylo scored from the spot af­ter a daz­zling run was brought to a pre­ma­ture end.

Wok­ing forced Fon­dopTalom into a goalline clear­ance five min­utes be­fore half-time af­ter Sam John­son had missed claim­ing a cor­ner.

Re­gan Charles-Cook’s cross-shot was di­verted in by sub­sti­tute Char­lie Carter just af­ter half-time, but Hal­i­fax re­gained the lead in mag­nif­i­cent fash­ion when Ko­sylo ri­fled in a stun­ning shot.

Hal­i­fax put the game out of reach as Michael Duck­worth’s cross was nod­ded in by sub­sti­tute Thom­son.
