Yeovil Town’s goalscorer at Halifax, Malachi Linton, thought the point was a ‘good’ one after late drama at the Shay.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, the striker said: “Little points like this against a sort of relegation rival, I think its fair to say, can go a long long way. I definitely think in the manner of how we came back, late drama, it’s always a good point.”

His late equaliser, in a game where manager Mark Cooper said they were against the world, was a testament to the squad’s togetherness according to Linton.

“I think that performance shows our togetherness as team. We dug deep until the end, got a late equaliser and you know we’re around each other. People fill in holes and everyone applies themselves and we go out each game no matter what it is.”

“I don’t think the game should have gone the way it went. I think a dominant performance in the first half, the way the gaffer likes to play, I think we should bury it then and there, but we didn’t. And you always leave yourself vulnerable when you don’t take you chances and dominate a game and you’re susceptible to a counter attack goal like that.”

The striker did say he felt belief was coming back into the team though: “I think the past few games we’ve have had more of the belief that we’ve needed to have and I think if you go into a game not believing you’re not going to come out on the right side of it.”

More goals please Mal!
