Macclesfield Town goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara is relishing his time at the Moss Rose, but admitted that the team must stick together if they are to start grinding out results this season.
The Manchester United loanee believes there are plenty of positives to be taken into the Silkmen’s upcoming fixtures, with a trip to Morecambe on the horizon this Saturday.
Kieran acknowledges that the Silkmen’s late troubles are a problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
“We’ve gone down to a good side in Lincoln”
“We managed to get back into the game but it’s seeing games out that we’re struggling to do.
“I think with time we will get that and hopefully start putting some much-needed wins behind us and put some points on the board.”
After fighting their way back into the game on Saturday, Macclesfield were left to rue conceding another late goal as Jason Shackell popped up late on to give league-leading Lincoln victory.
“They’re a strong side, but I feel like we need to do better against strong sides.
“There’s no easy games in this league and it’s about time we started putting points on the board.
“We need to stick together, see games out and start working together in different situations.”
Kieran produced yet another scintillating performance, producing numerous saves to deny a potent Danny Cowley side.
And whilst the Republic of Ireland U21 international was pleased with his own performance, it comes of no consolation to him if it doesn’t benefit the teams overall.
“It’s not about individual performances, yes I made a lot of saves, but I’m part of the team and if the team wins, I win. If they lose, I lose.
“It’s about working together as a team to win games and climb the table like we, the fans and the manager wants to do.
“So it’s not so much about my individual performances, but the performances from the team.”
Macclesfield travel to the Globe Arena on Saturday, to face a Morecambe side who sit just one place above the Silkmen in the SkyBet League Two table.
With no midweek fixture to endure, Mark Yates’ side will have had a full week to prepare for this important clash.
“Obviously we’re optimistic - we want to go into the game positive like every game and hopefully we can get the job done.”
Since arriving at the Moss Rose last month, the 22-year-old is currently loving his experience at the Moss Rose.
“I’m really enjoying it! I’m learning a lot, I’m getting a lot of experience that I need and I feel like I’m getting everything I need to help me push on and reach the level I know I’m capable of.
“I really appreciate the opportunity the Manager has given to me and I want to keep on putting performances in for the team and for the fans.”
