Maidenhead United midfielder James Comley was pleased with the win over Halifax and believes the Magpies are in good form heading towards the end of the season.
The midfielder continued his good work after returning from international duty to help the Magpies record their 15th win of the season and move them well clear of the bottom four.
“I thought we did really well,” said Comley
“I looked at the highlights after the game, and I thought we played really well. The first half was a bit slow, with both teams feeling each other out but I thought second half we looked really good and maybe should have done better with some of the chances.
“I thought we nullified them really well too and it could have been three or four.”
The 1-0 score line saw the Magpies pick up another clean sheet and the Montserrat international has been pleased with the way they’ve performed both defensively and offensively in recent weeks.
“This time of the year we always back ourselves,” added Comley
“We’ve won quite a few games recently and we always think if we can keep it tight at the back we can win the game.
“If we play our game right we’ve always got a chance to win. And there’s goals in this team. We might not win games three or four nil but we always create chances.”
The Magpies will be looking for another win, but an in-form Barnet, a side who have kept six clean sheets in a row and Dave Tarpey stand in their way.
“It will be nice to see Tarps (Tarpey) again,” added Comley
“It’s good to see him back playing after his injury and getting a run of games. He deserved his move (to Barnet) and it was unlucky for him to get injured.
“In terms of stopping him – we just have to continue doing what we always do.”
“We might know how he plays, but he also knows how we play so no one really has the advantage.”
