Ch­ester dis­ap­point­ment frus­trates Wat­son

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SHELDAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town as­sis­tant man­ager Steve Wat­son ad­mits it was a frus­trat­ing per­for­mance from his side after they were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Ch­ester last week.

The Silk­men had plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties at the Moss Rose, but couldn’t find the net and had to set­tle for a point, leav­ing Wat­son dis­ap­pointed.

“Frus­trat­ing is prob­a­bly the best word to use, we worked re­ally hard again but again we only man­aged to come out with a point,” he said.

“There was lots of pos­i­tives – we man­aged to keep a clean sheet against a team who are go­ing re­ally well at the mo­ment. We had a lot of pos­ses­sion with­out be­ing able to con­vert which was prob­a­bly the big­gest dis­ap­point­ment.”

Other pos­i­tives for the game saw a cou­ple of play­ers re­turn to ac­tion after spells out through in­jury, and Wat­son was im­pressed with them.

“Jack Mack­reth (left) was bril­liant for the hour he played – he did lots of run­ning with and with­out the ball and help­ing Andy Halls out,” he said.

“Luckily we had Danny Rowe to come on but he didn’t have enough train­ing to start the game but he wasn’t a bad re­place­ment to come on.

“I felt that their left-back was ready to wave the white flag when Danny came on after be­ing run ragged by Jack.

“Again he was qual­ity and with a bit more luck and some more itches on the goals we could have had all three points.”
