Bouncing back the top target for Blues
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.”
