Mekhi: We’ll learn from our Lu­ton mis­takes

JACQUE TAL­BOT

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.”
