Bounc­ing back the top tar­get for Blues

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD RUFC head coach Giles Hea­gerty is des­per­ate for his side to get back to win­ning ways when they travel to Ch­ester in a Na­tional Two North clash this week­end.

The Blues head into the match on the back of a 27-12 home de­feat to Sed­g­ley Park Tigers on Satur­day, and Hea­gerty is ex­pect­ing his play­ers to re­turn to their best form.

“I want a pos­i­tive re­ac­tion from the lads. We’ve got a very down dress­ing room at the mo­ment but last week’s re­sult is done now,” he said.

“We’ve got to dust our­selves off and get ready for the game against Ch­ester. They’re at home and it’s a big pitch, so it’ll be tough. We’ve got to front up and do our best to put things right.”

Macc’s home de­feat to Sed­g­ley Park on Satur­day was the first at Priory Park this sea­son.

Their next game at home sees them host Sale FC on De­cem­ber 19, and Blues cap­tain Mike Fin­nemore does not want his side to ex­pe­ri­ence the feel­ing of los­ing at home again.

“We have got to get the job done against Ch­ester first and that will ob­vi­ously be tough, but then we have got to get back to Priory Park and get back to win­ning ways,” he said. “You can’t get into a habit of los­ing at home so we have all got to fo­cus on re­build­ing our­selves back to the level we know we are ca­pa­ble of play­ing at.”
