Watson left with mixed emotions
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.”
