McDonald: 'It's back To basics!"
*The Moors manager looks ahead to the trip to Tranmere*

"People have said that we were beaten by a better team last Saturday but I don’t buy that. 

True, Benyu is an outstanding player and they were better in the final third but I was not happy with our performance. It simply has not been good enough for the last three matches.

There is only so much we can do in between games – we set up properly, try to get our tactics right and we keep morale high. The players know that our league position is not safe and they need to work harder, stay focussed through out the games and stick to the game plan.

Our player marking has been poor, we gave away the sloppiest of goals against Torquay and last weekend our shape disintegrated. Three weeks ago I could not have foreseen we would be in this position but the players are letting themselves down and it needs to stop before Tranmere. We have taken our foot off the gas and that will not do!

The next five games are all cup finals and if we do not approach them as such we are likely to find ourselves in trouble. The lads need to pull up their socks, rolls their sleeves up and put in a performance at Prenton Park regardless of the result. This Saturday it is “back to basics”.

Yes Tranmere are pushing Lincoln because they are a very good side but we went to Dover not so long ago and came away with a point and I see no reason why on our day we cannot surprise the Rovers.

I hope to have Shep Murombedzi back and with a bit of luck, Harry White too. This gives me more options. I was pleased to see Andy Brown lasting almost the entire game against Aldershot – his ability and experience are things we need now more than ever.

We are not the first team to suffer an unexpected loss of form – look at Chelsea last season!   It is the first time as a manager that I have found myself in this position so it’s a learning curve for us all.

Thanks to our superior goal difference we can effectively regard a win now as virtually four points. After Tranmere we play York  at the ATG Stadium on Good Friday which is a real six pointer.   It is time for us to bounce back!"
