Wat­son left with mixed emo­tions

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town as­sis­tant man­ager Steve Wat­son felt his side may have missed an op­por­tu­nity af­ter they were held to a 1-1 draw at Torquay.

A goal from Kings­ley James gave the Silk­men a lead at the in­ter­val, but Sean McGinty scored in the sec­ond half to hand his side a point at Plain­moor.

It meant Macc were left in ninth place in the Na­tional League ta­ble ahead of their planned game with Bar­row tonight (Wed­nes­day), but Wat­son had mixed feel­ings about the draw with Torquay.

“I sup­pose away from home with a long trip like that, a point isn’t the end of the world, but when we’re try­ing to push on and look for a spot in the play-offs then you start nit pick­ing a lit­tle bit,” he said.

“I think we cre­ated five or six chances where we could have done bet­ter at the end of it, but it could have been a lot worse so a point away from home keeps the unbeaten run go­ing.”

Wat­son is now urg­ing his side to kick on from here, and has made it clear that the matches that take place at the Moss Rose are the most im­por­tant fix­tures for the Silk­men.

“We need to win the home games, we know that,” he said.

“To get to where we need to be then six points at home this week is what we’ve def­i­nitely got to be look­ing at.”
