Danny: We won’t dwell on de­feat

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHEL­DAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town midfielder Danny Whi­taker ad­mits he missed a golden op­por­tu­nity to earn his team vic­tory dur­ing Satur­day’s 1-0 de­feat to Torquay United.

The 34-year-old had been in de­cent goal-scor­ing form dur­ing pre-sea­son, in­clud­ing a strike against Con­gle­ton Town ear­lier this month. He couldn’t find the back of the net against the Gulls last week­end though, and was dis­ap­pointed with how things un­folded.

“Maybe I’m a bit harsh on my­self but I should have done bet­ter with the one-on-one chance I had,” he said.

“In football you have to take your chances and when you don’t take them then it comes back to bite you.

“It’s not the re­sult that we wanted but there were pos­i­tives to take out of the match as I thought we played some good stuff in the first half.

“We de­served to lead the game but it wasn’t to be and we went home with­out any points.

“We’ve just got to for­get about what went on against Torquay very quickly and move on to the next game.”

Whi­taker has made over 250 ap­pear­ances for Mac­cles­field dur­ing his two spells at the Moss Rose and scored six goals in his 29 ap­pear­ances last sea­son.
