Mark: "Nobody Likes Losing Games"

9 March 2020

The Silkmen suffered a 3 - 0 defeat against promotion-chasing Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, as a brace from George Cooper and a Ryan Hardie strike proved to be decisive at Home Park.

After the game, the media spoke to Head Coach Mark Kennedy to gain his post-match thoughts -

“I would like to say thank you to all the fans that came, the result was really harsh on us because I believe we performed well. The chances that we created it was no fault of our own, we should have had at least three goals ourselves.”

“I said after the game that we’ve got real problems if we don’t create chances and I thought we created a lot against one of the best sides in the league.”

“Nobody likes losing games, but Plymouth are an excellent side."

Mark was also asked about the role that substitutions played in the game –

“I didn’t want to change anything because I thought the lads were excellent, but I didn’t want to concede any more so we had to change the formation.”

Even after a disappointing result the travelling Macclesfield side showed their appreciation to the fans who made the long trip down to Plymouth.

“We have great commitment between the players and the fans, and you also see the level of emotion after the game, most players don’t want to walk over to the fans after losing three nil, but they did, and they were excellent.

"I always knew that though when I was here 18 months ago, it’s what has drawn me into the club.”

Mark and his side will now focus their attentions to next week’s Sky Bet League Two fixture double-header with Walsall and Cheltenham Town.
