Jak: "We're Digging In"

3 December 2019

Jak McCourt cut a frustrated figure after Saturday’s draw with Bradford City which extended Macc’s run of stalemate’s in the league to three games.

The midfielder’s first half penalty was cancelled out by James Vaughan with fifteen minutes left to play, before Connor Kirby was sent off for a second bookable offence late on.

He said: “It’s a good result considering the circumstances, so the lads have been a real credit to the club. We put in a good shift today but we’re disappointed that we didn’t come away with the three points.”

“We conceded a goal to a set piece, but we created lots of chances in the second half from our own set pieces.”

“Before the game we’d say that a draw would be a good result, but after going one up and defending well overall, we’re a little upset to not get more from the game.”

Jak continued: “Our first half performance wasn’t the best and we will all own up to that. We’ve dug in and come in at one nil ahead, and then in the second half we played a lot better.”

“We’re disappointed that we’ve conceded from a set piece and it something that we will look at in the week. We know how good we are defensively, and we showed that today, but we’re upset with how we conceded and that will be something we’ll assess.”

“I’m delighted [to get on the scoresheet] but its about the whole team. We’re all putting a shift in. I mention what has been happening at the club, but every player and member of staff is a credit to Macclesfield Town.”

“The fans understand what is going on but we’re all digging in deep to pull in the right direction.”
