Mekhi: We’ll learn from our Luton mistakes
STANLEY midfielder Mekhi McLeod believes that the team have the mental capacity to learn from their mistakes against Luton and push on to achieve a top three automatic-promotion place by the end of the season.
McLeod signed a one year deal with Stanley in June, and came off the bench during the 2-0 home defeat to Luton on Saturday.
The 21-year-old hopes to return to winning ways when they face Coventry City this weekend.
“I think the loss we had is a bit disappointing, but we just had a bad day at the office and we will try and change that and get to the top,” he said.
“We have got John Coleman and all the staff around us who are trying to create something good and getting us working so hard. Automatic promotion is always in our mind and that’s is drilled into us and now has become our mind-set.
“At the start of the season, with our ambition, I think a lot of people would have been shocked to think promotion was our aim, but because it has been drilled into us for this season, we are now doing it. So, we have just got to continue that. That’s our mentality - even if we are down, we’ll come back up. So our aim is to go out there and give it a go. It’s been a good start for some people, but I think personally that, as a team, we can expect more.”
McLeod has performed well for Stanley this season, and he hopes his performances continue to have an impact.
“My game is to be effective and to be attacking. Creating chances is my job. I think the fans can see that. I just want to do well,” he said.
“Individually, I think that’s the same for all the boys; we are now looking at more than just the top half of the table.”
