MAC­CLES­FIELD Town striker Jack Samp­son says he was dev­as­tated with the man­ner his side lost af­ter they suf­fered a nar­row 2-1 de­feat at For­est Green Rovers.

Samp­son had ini­tially scored to put the Silk­men in front in the match, pounc­ing on a de­fen­sive er­ror from Kier­rer Moore to make it 1-0 af­ter 69 min­utes.

For­est Green came from be­hind though and won it thanks to a stop­page time goal from Char­lie Clough, mean­ing they con­demned Macc to a de­feat.

While he may have scored his se­cond goal of the cam­paign, the 22-year-old felt com­ing up short over­shad­owed his own per­for­mance.

“I’m dev­as­tated re­ally. We’ve had a chat about it but it’s just one of them. We dug in for 90 min­utes and they’ve just gone long on the throw in and scored so I’m still a bit gut­ted re­ally,” he said.

“That’s the se­cond time in a week they’ve done that but I think we were the bet­ter team for most of the game.”

Samp­son was re­quired to play sev­eral roles in the game against For­est Green, lead­ing the line be­fore then be­ing moved into a dif­fer­ent po­si­tion.

“I went out wide in the game too as Danny White­head tweaked his ham­string so the man­ager asked if I can do a job out there,” he said.

“I do like win­ning my head­ers but I hope peo­ple can see I can do a bit on the floor as well and then the goals will keep com­ing.

Samp­son opened his ac­count with a goal against Tran­mere Rovers ear­lier this sea­son, and he felt that goal meant more to him.

“The first one was a bit bet­ter as it was a win at Tran­mere, but I’m not re­ally think­ing about my goal as I still can’t be­lieve we lost that,” he said.
