Chester disappointment frustrates Watson
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.”
