Despite losing 1 - 0 to Morecambe on Tuesday night, Macclesfield’s Jay Harris stated that there were plenty of things to be positive about.
“We’re very disappointed with the result but at the end of the day, this happens in football.
"We’ve got to pick ourselves up, take all the positives out the game and get rid of the negatives. We’ll get back into training on Thursday and crack all of these mistakes.”
Harris was impressive throughout and was named Man of the Match, as the Silkmen were narrowly defeated as a result of a Ritchie Sutton goal mid-way through the second period.
“In the second half we came out with a positive attitude but luck just wasn’t with us tonight. We conceded from a second-phase set-play so we’ve got to move on from this and not dwell on it.
"It’s always disheartening when you go a goal down, especially with the amount of possession and good chances we had.
"I’ve been in the game for a long time, you’ve just got to learn from it and move on”
It was Daryl McMahon’s first game in charge of Macclesfield and Harris says that he’s already made an impact.
“He’s implemented a few little things that will gradually grow bigger as we move on, with the more training sessions that we have. He’s tweaked a few things and made us better.
"The fans were unbelievable as well. They’ve stuck with us through the throughout.
"Hopefully we can do them justice this season and give them something to sing about.”
Macclesfield’s next match is against Scunthorpe United on Saturday and the midfielder is already looking ahead to the game.
“We want to control games, so come Thursday and Friday, we’re going to be playing out from the back and nailing down these set plays so that everything is spot on for Saturday.”
