Hall Road’s Gill: We re­ally could have beaten Maltby

Hull Daily Mail - - SPORT -

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.
