Before the game I think if you’d told us the final score against Farsley we’d have said it was two points dropped.

But having been 2-0 down at half-time it definitely feels like a point gained against one of our play-off rivals.

We were poor in the first half and second best in every department really but we showed a lot of character and determination after the interval in a game that I think was a good advertisement for non-league football.

We’re disappointed with the result as a point is really no good for both teams in the grand scheme of things but the second-half performance should give us some much-needed belief entering the final five games of the season.

The race for the play-offs is still wide open but we need to finish strongly and for me there’s no better place to start than at Ossett Town on Saturday.

They’ve been on quite a good run recently which has moved them up to eighth and they have also beaten some of the top sides at home this season.

We know it’s going to be a tough game but we were excellent in the second half against Farsley.

With that momentum we should be able to get something and properly get our run for the play-offs back on track.
