Manager Chris Hargreaves has said he felt the players got the game half right in the draw against Nuneaton Town at the weekend.

A scoreless draw gave us a point but the injury to defender Angus MacDonald took most of the headlines so to speak, and talking to the Official Site following the game, Hargreaves explained that it was again a point that we could build on going into the game against Braintree on Tuesday evening.

‘We had to be resilient to stop a run of games where we have conceded goals which have cost us. We didn’t have that quality near goal that we had earlier in the season, but we had a bit of spirit about us, and I thought our shape was good. We are snatching at shots and passes, and it’s fizzling out a bit in the final third, but defensively we looked alright. We got things half-right on Saturday, and half not-right, but it gives us something to take into Braintree tomorrow and Kidderminster at home next week.’

As for MacDonald’s injury, he will now be missing for up to six weeks having severely sprained the ankle joint and damaged his tendons.

Scans showed that the initial fears of a broken bone were unfounded, so that was the good news, but he’ll now enter the rehab stage with an outside hope of returning to action for the final few games of the season.

It is more likely he will be out for the entire season though unless he’s a really quick healer.
