The Silkmen were defeated in the opening day of the 2012/13 season at Hereford United, and Steve King had this to say after the match.
"I think we controlled the game for long periods, but two mistakes cost us for their two goals. It's ironic really because the two centre halves are probably the
most experienced players in the squad. In the first the challenge should have come in and in the second we should have pressed it more.
"The second was a great strike, but he's not going to score one like that again, his other two hit the corner flag!
"But I was disappointed to lose in the manner we did, they dropped off and let us press, but I thought we might nick something at the end.
"I thought we would go on to cause them more problemms after we scored, and controled a lot of the game with some decent football.
"There are some positives. The passing and movement was good, but I don't think we quite did enough to get in behind them to cause their goalkeeper enough problems."
