LEE Bradbury praised the hard work of the Hawks as they recorded successive National League wins for the first time this season.

Second-half goals by Tyler Cordner and Alfie Rutherford set the home side on their way to a 2-1 win against Halifax at Westleigh Park.

A late blunder by goalkeeper Ben Dudzinski set up a nervous finale but the home side deserved their success.

Bradbury said: ‘I thought we were good value for the three points.

‘We put in another hard-working performance and also had to show good physicality.

‘Halifax were a big side and posed a threat from set pieces. I felt that we dealt with that well.

‘The wind played a bigger part than most people realised and the first half was all about keeping a clean sheet.

‘In the second half I knew that we could pin them in and create opportunities.

‘We did just that and got a couple of goals by playing some good football.

'Moving out of the bottom four will give us confidence moving forward into some crucial games against teams in and around us in the league.'
