Improving Blues set for ‘month from hell’
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.”
