FC Halifax Town have their final pre-season outing tomorrow when they travel to Buxton.
It will be boss Neil Aspin’s side’s last run-out before they travel to Dover Athletic for their opening Vanarama Conference Premier match on Saturday, August 9.
The Shaymen are in a winning vein of form and they made it six wins from seven in pre-season by beating Mossley 2-1 at Seel Park.
Player-physio Jon Worthington got a run out in the second half and was pleased with how pre-season has gone.
“It’s a bit of a cliché, but it’s about getting minutes on the pitch and keeping everybody fit,” said the former Huddersfield Town midfielder.
“That’s what we’re doing, but it’s always nice to get into a winning habit and we’ve done that scoring goals and keeping it tight at the back is the main aim really, do I’m sure the manager will be delighted.
I thought it was a good work out for the lads at Mossley, there were a few lads that need minutes more than others, and I thought everyone put a good shift it.”
James Bolton got the Shaymen off to a great start with a header from a set piece, Richard Peniket rifled in a clinical finish from 12 yards to give the Shaymen a two goal lead on the road.
Worthington was impressed and said: “It was a great finish, he (Peniket) looked lively and he’s got pace, and he showed that he can be a threat for us this season.”
