Hall Road’s Gill: We really could have beaten Maltby
HALL Road Rangers boss Bill Gill was disappointed with his side’s well-earned point against Maltby Main.
Neither side could break the deadlock in a game of few chances.
Gill said: “It was a pleasing performance and on paper it looks like a good point against a top team. However, when in the game it’s disappointing to not take all three points.”
Both sides initially struggled to test each other as they could only produce half-chances which went straight at either keeper.
However, Maltby did begin to create real opportunities which forced Rangers keeper Charlie Dixon into making a couple of good saves.
Gill was also very satisfied with his goalkeeper’s performance and the overall solidity of the defence.
“Credit to our keeper and back line as they were excellent but we lacked a little composure and quality in the final third which was identical to the away game at Thackley,” he said.
Hall Road’s only big chance of the first half came just before the break when Conner Harman fired over the bar. The visitors continued with their efforts to take the lead but Dixon made more outstanding saves which ensured it finished as a stalemate.
Rangers also carved out a few chances of their own but didn’t manage to really produce the quality needed to win.
