Sol Campbell was left disappointed after seeing his side held to a draw by Morecambe yesterday, but insists survival is still in the Silkmen’s hands.
Zak Mills opened the scoring for the visitors, but Elliott Durrell equalised seven minutes later to complete the scoring.
After the game, Sol spoke to Silkmen TV -
“I’m very disappointed, the lads didn’t really start too well,” admitted the former Arsenal and England star.
“We then got back into the game and we picked it up, but we could have done better.
“When you are down there, you need that spark to make a difference - it’s fine margins. The main thing is we didn’t lose, but we need to make sure the momentum doesn’t get destroyed.
“We need to get together, galvanise each other and play football.”
As much as it may feel like two-points dropped, it gave Campbell a clear idea on what needs improving ahead of a big fixture against Exeter City on Tuesday night.
“We were huffing and puffing, but we didn’t relax in certain moments
"It’s not like we didn’t get into key positions, we certainly did, but we were taking too long, or hitting the first man, or not getting our head up at the right time to deliver.
“This is a missed opportunity for sure. We need to get better at all these things; we need to consciously think to look up and make the right decisions as we get into the danger zone.”
Durrell’s well-taken goal was a glimmer of exactly what Campbell has asked for if the Silkmen are to stay in the Football League.
“It was a good move. Great pass, touch and go, and a great strike; fantastic,”
“We need to do more of that – the passion, the drive, we need to be together as a team keep going.
“Exeter is a massive game for us, but we must ensure we have no fear. It’s still in our own hands but we have got to make sure we deliver and keep believing.”
