Shay­men hit back to earn re­play

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

FA TRO­PHY: FC Hal­i­fax Town pro­duced a stun­ning come­back as goals from Dayle South­well and Matty Ko­sylo took their tie with Soli­hull to a re­play.

The Shay­men looked down and out when Adi Yus­suf and Nathan Blis­sett had put Soli­hull 2-0 up just be­fore the hour­mark.

But the in­tro­duc­tion of Cameron King, who set up Hal­i­fax’s first goal, helped to turn the tie and Ko­sylo pro­duced a won­der­ful free-kick to res­cue a draw.

The sides will meet again at Soli­hull to­mor­row night for a place in the third round.

Yus­suf had a sim­ple fin­ish in the 47th minute and Nathan Blis­sett slid in at the far post to con­vert an ex­cel­lent low cross from Matty Sten­son 10 min­utes later.

Sub­sti­tute King, on his first ap­pear­ance since De­cem­ber 1, made an in­stant im­pact as he re­leased South­well with a per­fectly-weighted through ball, and the striker dinked the ball over the on­rush­ing Ryan Boot.

Ko­sylo then curled a de­light­ful free-kick into the top cor­ner to com­plete the come­back.
