Gary Waddock: Happy with striker's impact

McLeod was on target in the first-round clash along with Shaun Williams and 17-year-old substitute Brendan Galloway - for whom it was his first career goal - while Lee Gregory replied for the non-league Shaymen.

Waddock said: "It's a case of job done really, we're in the next round of the FA Cup so we're pleased with that.

"The first goal is always important and it was a fantastic goal from Izale as well, so we're pleased for him.

"This season in the main he's been on the sidelines but when he's come on he's done everything right in terms of his performances.

"He's worked hard on the training ground and he got his reward here - the first goal was an excellent strike and the second he's in the right place at the right time.

"To get the first goal settles everybody's nerves - they are always difficult ties.

"Everybody expects you to come out and be quite comfortable and win the game comfortably but that wasn't that case.

"You've got to give credit to Halifax for the way they went about their performance.

"Brendan (Galloway) has had a decent few months - he's gone away with England and done extremely well then he's come on here and scored."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
