Im­prov­ing Blues set for ‘month from hell’

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD RUFC head coach Giles Hea­gerty be­lieves that his side’s up­com­ing fixtures can be seen as a ‘month from hell.’

The Blues con­tinue to find things tough in the di­vi­sion, and Hea­gerty is well aware of how dif­fi­cult the next few weeks will be.

“I think you would be justified in call­ing it a month from hell, but it is what it is and we just have to get on with it,” he said.

“Ev­ery other team at the lower end of the ta­ble will have to play the same games be­fore the sea­son is over, so these things even out over the year.

“You have to go into ev­ery game be­liev­ing you can get points, oth­er­wise you’re de­feated be­fore you take to the field. How­ever, you also have to be re­al­is­tic.

“Whilst our own re­sults haven’t nec­es­sar­ily gone the way we would’ve liked, we have started to show a greater de­gree of con­sis­tency in some of our per­for­mances.

“Against Mose­ley and in patches against Ply­mouth – two top sides in the league – we showed we are im­prov­ing and that we are ca­pa­ble of com­pet­ing at the high­est level.

“We’ve got to stick at it and keep bang­ing on the door. If you get fix­ated on league po­si­tion you can eas­ily lose your fo­cus.”
