Trophy defeat devoid of positives
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.”
