FC Halifax Town manager Pete Wild admitted that Yeovil Town should have had a penalty before his side scored their second in 3-0 win at Huish Park.

In the 83rd minute, Glovers’ striker Reuben Reid was pulled back in the box by visiting defender Niall Maher, but referee Elliot Swallow waved the appeals away.
The Shaymen broke down the other end where Kieran Green nicked a second.

Speaking to the Halifax Courier after the game, Wild said: “Yeah it’s a pen, definitely. Again, across the season there’s been many times where we’ve had pens I didn’t think were pens and we’ve not had them, so you’d like to think it balances out.”

He added that the scoreline flatered his side who remain in fifth place in the National League table.

Wild said: “It certainly wasn’t a 3-0 game but there’s been many a time this season where we’ve had chance after chance after chance and not taken them. Today we’ve had limited chances and taken most of them.”
