Reece Cole has said that the squad need to keep going until the last minute after the Silkmen fell to a 3-0 defeat away at Bury on Saturday.
A 75th minute penalty from Jay O’Shea all but settled the result but Cole says that instead of heads going down that the squad should fight until the last minute of every game.
The result means that Macc remain in the relegation zone, but with everything to play for with two huge games coming up at the Moss Rose.
“It was obviously a very frustrating day” said Cole.
“We felt that we were in the game at half-time, as it was only 1-0 but we let the game slip and it’s very frustrating to not get anything from it.
“The penalty shouldn’t kill us off, I think we had 15 mins left or so to recover so there was still time to get back into the game, we can’t drop our heads even at 2-0 and we’ve got to keep on going until the very last minute.
“You could see a few heads go down at 2 - 0 and of course we’re disappointed but we’ve got to keep on going, it’s not over until it’s over.”
The season Is far from over. MK Dons and Exeter City are the next two visitors to the Moss Rose and the whole squad are eager to bounce back with a much needed wins.
One factor which is vital going forward is the support from the Silkmen faithful and Cole was also full of praise for the crowd who travelled to Bury and is hopeful the squad can pay them back with wins.
“We’re looking forward to the next two home games. It’s not nice losing and we just want to rectify it straight away so hopefully we have a good week's training and we can push on and get some points from the upcoming games.
“From the warm-up until the end of the game the support was there. The fans keep backing us and now we’ve got to give them something to cheer about and hopefully we can do it in the next few home games.”
