Neil Aspin felt his FC Halifax Town players could not have done any more to win after they were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom club Kidderminster at The Shay.

Halifax conceded first for the ninth time this season from Garjit Sigh’s header but claimed a point through the outstanding CJ Hamilton.

Aspin said: “I thought overall we had the better chances and I thought the second-half performance was very good, probably the best we’ve played this season.

“We’ve had to come from behind, but credit to them, they stuck at it and I couldn’t fault their second-half efforts, I thought everybody put in a shift and they did everything they could to win the game.”

Singh rose majestically, albeit unmarked, to meet Aman Verma’s excellent cross and loop the ball over Glennon as Kidderminster started brightly.

Halifax should have levelled when Hamza Bencherif headed over Hamilton’s cross from six yards before half-time.

But they sealed a strong spell after the break when Hamilton controlled Josh Macdonald’s pass and calmly slotted past Alex Palmer.

Hamilton fired a shot just over before Jordan Burrow shot wide.

At the other end, James Bolton produced a goal-saving block from Jared Hodgkiss’s shot before Macdonald headed the ball off the line.
