Tro­phy de­feat de­void of pos­i­tives

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town striker Kris­tian Den­nis felt there were no pos­i­tives at all to take from last week’s FA Tro­phy de­feat to Torquay.

The 25-year-old, on a sea­son-long loan from Stock­port County, had his sights set on a trip to Wem­b­ley, but saw those hopes ended when the Silk­men were beaten at the Moss Rose.

It con­tin­ues a poor run of form for Macc, with the team also strug­gling in the Na­tional League af­ter los­ing four straight matches.

While Den­nis was ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed with the loss to Torquay, he is urg­ing his team to keep fight­ing and turn around this bad run.

“There isn’t re­ally any other pos­i­tives we can take from that game be­cause it was a cup per­for­mance and it doesn’t mat­ter how you play or how you get the win it’s just about get­ting through to the next round but un­for­tu­nately we couldn’t do that,” he said. “It’s frus­trat­ing when we were so close to Wem­b­ley at that stage, but we’ve just got to pick our­selves up from it and go again and try to get a win.

“We thought we would get the break­through against Torquay, usu­ally we al­ways score but I can’t re­ally put my fin­ger on it, the fin­ish­ing just wasn’t on point.”
