Manager Chris Hargreaves has admitted that neither side deserved to win in our one nil loss to Macclesfield but again our concentration levels gifted them the goal.

It was particularly galling for the gaffer as ahead of the game he had called on the team to maintain their focus for the full 90 minutes as it had clearly bitten us in a number of games previously, and it was concentration levels that again formed his after match interview with the Official Site.

‘We didn’t have the guile to put the ball in the back of the net from some good situations and it was a nothingness of a second half. No team deserved to get a goal but we turned off, and they scored. We didn’t have the creativity in the second half apart from a few long range efforts. It looked like we tired a little bit and Macclesfield’s tempo went up. We dropped a little deeper but there was still nothing in it.’

Hargreaves went on to say that we are paying the highest price possible for concentration lapses as he knows at any level if you switch off for a second you can get punished and every time we do switch off, the opposition are scoring.

‘We didn’t deserve to lose the game or to win it, but we have to look at ourselves and ask whether we’re concentrating for the whole 95 minutes.’
